One of the world’s most well-known craft beer websites has ranked Croatian craft beer brewers Zmajska pivovara in its Top 10 New Brewers in the World list…
RateBeer, which is the world’s largest source for information on craft beer and the craft beer culture, has ranked Zagreb’s Zmajska pivovara at number 9 in its annual list of the best new brewers in the world list. Considering there were more than 3,800 new world-wide brewers registered this past year and quarter at RateBeer, making the top 10 puts the team at Zagreb’s Zmajska in an extremely elite bunch.
“The first Western-style craft microbrewery to open in Croatia, Zmajska Pivovara, spearheaded by the pillar of the Croatian homebrewing scene – Andrej Čapka, with renowned homebrewer Bojan Pap as head brewer, opened, finally, in September 2014 after a series of equipment delivery delays, giving full momentum to the country’s long-awaited craft revolution that had started mere months before. Their beers proved to be well worth the wait, as both their Pale Ale and their Porter turned out to be of the highest quality – the latter making the top 15 in style for 2014 at RateBeer Best,” wrote RateBeer.
