      Chernihivske Beer

When travelling to a foreign country I always try to taste their local beers. In the Ukraine the following two beers were among my favourites:

Lvivske Beer is not only known in Lviv, but also all over the country. Rumours even say that it had the reputation of being the best beer in the former Soviet Union. The history of the Lviv based brewery dates back to the 15th century and nowadays it is owned by the Baltic Beverage Holding. At present they produce about 6 beer brands, mainly pilsner style ones.

Chernihivske Beer is brewed by the Chernihiv Desna Brewery in Northern Ukraine. It is one of the best selling beer brands in the Ukraine. Nowadays they belong to the Sun InBev Company and produce 8 different beers, with their light beer being the most popular one.

Other well tasting Ukrainian beers which I tried are Obolon from Kiev and Slavutych from Zaporishzhia.
