Stein

Brewery: Pivovar Steiger

A bottle of Stein 10% beerStein brewery was founded in 1873.  It immediately began winning medals for its quality product.  In 1995 the company went public and in 2007 the production was moved from Bratislava to the Steiger Brewery in Vyhne.  Stein’s logo shows Bratislava’s coat of arms, which is not an image of Bratislava Castle but a general depiction of a medieval town.  Stein just celebrated 140 years of making beer.

Beers

Stein 8% Light Drinking Beer

Type: Bohemian pilsner
ABV: 3.0%

Highly fermented and produced with high quality water, hops, and pilsner malt.  A very light but easy-to-drink beer.

Stein 10% Draught

Type: Bohemian pilsner
ABV: 4.1%

A fine, bitter hop flavoured beer that tastes like a draft beer even out of a can.  Of course, it’s best served from a tap on a hot day.

Reviews

 

Stein 12%

Type: pilsner lager
ABV: 5%

A long fermentation process at a low temperature, gives this beer its full flavour and intense bitterness.

Grošák Horden

Type: Pale European lager
ABV: 3%

Cooked in open vats and fermented in traditional lager tanks, Grosak Horden is a light flavorful beer.  Grosak translates to “roan” which is a term used to describe a horse that has a mixture of colored and white hairs.  The beer’s logo is also a horse, but I don’t see the connection between the color and the beer (ie. don’t worry, you won’t find horse hair in your drink).

Starosladnicke 11%

Type: Bohemian pilsner
ABV: 4.5%

Bratislava’s historic 11% lager’s name translates to “old malt”.  It is a completely traditional beer that is only available in kegs.

The Kachelmann brand only has one beer:

Kachelmann 8% Classic

An extremely light beer that’s good for re-hydrating between regular beers.  Surprisingly bitter for such a light drink.

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.

Beers

Steiger 10% Classic

A pale golden beer that is thirst quenching and very light.

Reviews

 

Steiger 11% Premium

Type: Bohemian pilsner

Mild hops, medium bitterness, highly refreshing.  A light golden color with sparkling clarity.

Reviews

 

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.

Reviews

 

Steiger 12% Premium

style: Bohemian pilsner
ABV: 5%

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.
