Beer drinking: a favorite pastime for beer lovers around the world but most importantly for those of us lucky enough to drink beer in Croatia.

Bottoms up!

We all know that nothing quenches your thirst better on a blistering hot summer day than an ice cold beer. We also know that drinking beer in Croatia is almost as necessary as drinking water. You almost never see a cafe table without a half liter sitting pretty atop it, and you know all the local bars are pumping up taps with your favorites. Since beer is considered the cheapest way to drink in Croatia (and the definite quickest way to get drunk) what does cheap beer mean in Croatia and how do you know when you’re getting ripped off? We’re here to bring you the beer pricing guide to Croatia in hopes that you’ll never order wrongly at a bar or restaurant again.

The people of Split (or Splićani as we like to call them) like to drink. They like their drinks hot, cold, mixed, and everything in between. Therein lies Sanctuary, Split’s first dedicated sports, cocktail, and whiskey bar. Having opened in March of 2016, Sanctuary is quickly becoming a staple for cocktail enthusiasts, and is surely paving the way for craft cocktail rookies.

It could be a job of the century, probably the safest investment in history of brewing business. Picture this: Split is completely football crazy city, and Hajduk FC is more a religion than a sport in Split and Dalmatia. What is more connected with ifootball than drinking beer? And now, the logical conclusion is: let's produce a beer called Hajduk 1911, and sell it all over Dalmatia, with direct royalties for the club. Sure hit.

That's exactly what Hajduk did, joining forces with Osijek Brewery, and creating a pils named after the club founded in 1911. Just to be sure, taste of this pils was chosen by the Hajduk fans, who will be the main customer group. They had public tasting in Split, Zagreb and Makarska, and had chosen among three varieties.

Previously, Hajduk had contract with Pan brewery, owned by Carlsberg, but now they decided to go with one of the smaller players on the market. Timing is good, even though national season is over. Who will resist to taste some new beer while watching World Cup matches? Even if not delighted with it, it's always good to go with the local community. And nothing will boost your reputation in Split like doing something good for Hajduk.
