Brewery: Pivovar Šariš

Topvar bottle of beerTopvar has been making beer for 47 years. Their beers are known for their pleasant bitterness which can be credited to the fact that they triple-hop them. They’re owned by SABmiller and their motto roughly translates to “giving people the soul of beer”.  They are the first Slovakian brewery to receive a certificate of quality from Lloyd’s of London.


Topvar 12% Premium

Bitter, malty and full, Topvar’s 12% Lager is a beer-drinker’s beer. They stick to their original recipe and always use the freshest ingredients.



Topvar 10% Light

Type: Bohemian pilsner
ABV: 4.1%

A light beer with the bitterness of a regular beer.



Topvar 11% Tmavy

Type: Tmavy
ABV: 4.1%

Dark beers aren’t that popular in Slovakia but it’s not because they don’t have any good options.  Sweet with a caramel base, Topvar Dark will satisfy you as it satisfies judges, winning 10 gold medals in Slovak beer competitions.

Saris brewery

By 1983, they were producing one million hectoliters of beer per year.  They continued to be Slovakia’s largest brewery, which drew attention from SABMiller (the brewing company behind MGD, Pilsner Urquell, Fosters, and many other successful brews).

In 1997 SABMiller purchased the company.  Ten years later they were merged with Topvar, another successful Slovak brewery.  They continue producing the beers that made them so popular, using the same recipes.
