Steiger

Brewery: Pivovar Steiger

Bottle of Steiger Light beerQuite possibly, the first beer brewed in Slovakia.  The Steiger brewery dates back to 1473.  Over 500 years later, Steiger is still using traditional brewing techniques and basic brewing ingredients.  They strive to remain a traditional regional brand, with availability throughout Slovakia.

Steiger 11% Dark/Tmavy

style: Tmavy
ABV: 4.5%

With a beautiful dark color and a unique smell, Steiger’s dark lager is one of their best beers.  It has a sweetness to it which, according to their website, will please women drinkers.  In Slovakia they will often make a sort of “black and tan” or “half and half” with dark and light lagers.

The finest malt and hops are traditionally cooked to make this beer.  The locals in the brewery’s area will swear by it, but beer drinkers that are new to it may swear at it.

Smädný Mních

Brewery: Pivovar Šariš

Thirsty Monk beer coasterSmadny Mnich, or Thirsty Monk came on the market in 1993. It quickly became popular — partially because of the marketing, but also because of its light, refreshing taste. It’s slogan translates out to “A beer for anyone who’s thirsty” and its logo features a happy monk with a beer.

Smädný Mních Radler

Type: radler
ABV: 2%

With only 2% alcohol, I hardly consider this a beer, but I decided to include it anyways. Radlers (basically a shandy) are becoming more popular in Slovakia. If you are looking for a refreshing summer drink, this is it. It’s made with natural lemon juice.

Dark beers aren’t that popular in Slovakia but it’s not because they don’t have any good options.  Sweet with a caramel base, Topvar Dark will satisfy you as it satisfies judges, winning 10 gold medals in Slovak beer competitions.
