Beer was first brewed in Bratislava by the Celts two thousand years ago and competed in this region with wine to be the most popular drink ever since.
In the past, people drank beer instead of water. Even today, beer is considered by many Slovaks to be more food than drink and the Slovak beer has a reputation of one of Europe’s best beers.
