Beer culture is huge in Serbia. Apart from big beer producers as Zajecarsko pivo, Lav, Jelen and Apatinsko, Serbia is the home to various small craft beer companies such as Kabinet produced in the mountains of Kosmaj or Salto produced in a Belgrade workshop. Pale lager dominates in Serbia, and dark lager although quite popular is produced, but in smaller quantities.

This is our favorite one. A bit hipster-like place in the bar district of Cetinjska St. in Dorcol. You can choose craft beer like Kabinet and Salto and try some new citrusy flavors. Music selection is oriented towards electronic music and prices are very affordable.
