Domestic beers and small craft breweries
Kotor Craft Beer Festival “Špina” is the first and only festival in Montenegro dedicated to the promotion and popularisation of domestic beers and small craft breweries.
The first edition was held in mid-August 2018 at the Cinema Square in the Old Town. On this occasion, eight craft breweries presented their beers, and visitors could taste about 30 different types and styles of beer (IPA, American pale ale, Blonde, Stout, Porter, etc.) at promotional prices.
Beer pairs best with rock’n’roll, so best gigs and great fun during the festival are guaranteed.
The festival is frequented by many visitors, mostly tourists who are well acquainted with craft beer.
The culture of craft beer has already been largely present in Europe, and craft beer festivals are among the most popular events that attract a significant number of tourists. However, craft brewing in Montenegro is still at an early stage, but with new breweries being launched on the market. At the Kotor festival “Špina” they get the opportunity to introduce new tastes to visitors and present their product.
The festival is organised by NGO “Citra” from Kotor.
