Exploring the craft beer scene in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik's craft-beer scene is growing and getting more exciting each year

‍When it comes to exploring a city’s lifestyle, especially in the Mediterranean, what better way is there than to sample the local foods and drinks? Dubrovnik is no exception. Thanks to the only Dubrovnik brewery the popular Dubrovnik Beer Company, and few shops that have a good selection of craft beers on their shelves such as KAWA, the growing craft beer scene is making the city richer by an amazing experience.



Dubrovnik is a city that is often associated with rich history, stunning architecture, and beautiful beaches and craft beer is not something that immediately springs to mind, but this one local brewery is hoping to change that. Even though the craft beer scene in Dubrovnik is relatively small, it’s popular and growing by gaining more recognition, with more and more people trying out the unique brews and styles.
