Brewery: Pivovar Bytča

Bottle of Popper Premium beer
Popper is one of the oldest brands in Slovakia but also one of the smallest as far as production goes. Unlike many of the other breweries in Slovakia, it was never purchased by SABMiller or Heineken, so it hasn’t expanded like its competition, but its roots are strong and it shows in their beer. Since the brewery stopped producing Palatin 16% Tmavy (despite its numerous awards and favourable reviews), Popper is the brewery’s only brand.  It’s named after the Popper family who owned the brewery for 100 years.

This beer is aged in a cellar for a long time, giving it a unique taste with a greater fullness and bitterness.

Popper’s dark beer has a delicious caramel flavour with a lower alcohol content.  It is popular among Slovak women and has received awards by the Slovak Association of Historical Brewers.
