Croatia, Bosnia-

Any tips, going to start at Makarska, but take day trips to Mostar and Split;)?

Cheers // Thomas

Marko? @marko

Hey!

Just noticed this. Well, the places list covers things well for Croatia, as always. :slight_smile:

Makarska has Pivac - which is a fantastic place by all means, and you should love it there!

Mostar - this is the must-visit place by all means. Give me a heads-up and I’ll connect you with the owner/brewer and some others from Mostar who should be happy to give you more tips (including on where to eat best :)).

Split - the Mandrill brewpub in the city center is the cheapest place for beer and pizza in the city center, so it’s by all means a must-visit! The Tap B brewpub is also a must-visit. Unsure if Lab Split will have its taproom open.

For bars - Leopold’s is great, To Je To should have a large selection. For stores - the Victa chain of grocery stores has a pretty good selections. Mali Dućan Matejuška has 2 places next to each other, and the selection there’s the best in town, but the prices are almost bar-level, so some things might be cheaper elsewhere.

And just message me when you’re there and I’ll give you tips on what to see etc.

Thx man! Going on Sunday and back the coming ie 16th - cheers!

Not to highjack the thread but any tips for Istria and the area around Pula ?
Have been to the area several times before and have checked the places map, but maybe something new i havent noticed ?

Thanks

Pula is more or less dessert - Boabar is OK.
20 min South of Pula you can find this nice shop with a few taps: https://www.ratebeer.com/p/medulin-craft-beer-shop-bar-stella-medulin/46955/95853/

To update … probably being the most recent Ratebeerian in Split. . Last week of April 2019.
Mandrill. … 2 beers … 1 crap 1 excellent.
Leopolds. … no opening info … presume evening only … wasted our time going here at 2/3pm to find it closed.
Plan B tap … great pizza … Decent bottle selection but only 1 plan B beer.
Black Dog … definitely worth a visit … a few Croatian tap ticks plus others.
To Je To … deffo best multi tap tick venue for me .

And the 2 little beer shops Marko mentions are well worth a visit.
the new one #2 you can drink the bottles in.
Not much difference between the 2 but the completist will.find a few.different beers and #2 has more overall.

Ah, now I understand, you had confused Plan B with Tap B. Two different things, unrelated.

Plan B is more central, it’s a pub/restaurant with some craft. Tap B is the brewpub. That’s why you only found 1 beer. :smiley:

Apart from what Nisse said, check out Potaman in Premantura. New, or at least refurbished place - more taps than Stella in Medulin I think, maybe more bottles too, but also regional wines and olive oil I think etc.

Wait, today? There’s a beer fest in Makarska going on just now!

I did think there were 2 venues … however the staff at the pub/restaurant we visited didn’t speak the best English and I asked them a couple of times if there was a brewery tap in town and they said no … hence I didn’t visit !

They probably have no clue. It’s not a beer geek place as such, despite carrying craft (among other stuff).

The brewpub has a very nice set of taps since they trade kegs with other breweries with taprooms, so there’s always something interesting there.

But yay for pizza! :smiley:

Pizza was grate … don’t make a habit of eating pizza when I travel (unless in the US or Italy).

The missus loved it too … she’s hard to please with pizza !

Today?! Tomorrow as well? - will be late in, on plane :airplane: now;) // Thomas Ps. Any more info.?
