Crow brews delicious craft beers in Vranovo, Serbia
The next stop on our microbrewery tour in Serbia, after visiting Kabinet Brewery, was Crow Brewery in Vranovo, a small village close to the city of Smederevo. This family-owned microbrewery creates delicious, high-quality craft beers, and is also one of the craft beer pioneers of Serbia.
Altogether Crow has launched more than 100 craft beers, which is remarkably lot! Being small and agile producer, brewing in batch size of 1000 liters, Crow constantly creates new recipes and modifies the previous ones. They also make ciders, and for example the Crow Cider that we tasted was delicious, very fresh and nicely tart apple cider. The flagship / best seller beer of Crow is Caiman IPA, a fruity American IPA brewed with Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo and Rakau hops.
Crow beers taste delicious, but also look very nice! The label art is done by a trusted Serbian graphic designer, to whom Boban gives ideas for each label, and the result is always surprising and funny, as well as eye-catching. The name of the brewery comes from its home – the word for crow / raven is vran in Serbian, and the name of the village is Vranovo, after the huge amount of crows that used to live in the forested area, where the village was then established.
