Buy it by the case.

If you enjoyed a beer yesterday at the Blue Bar, maybe it was one of these popular Serbian brands. Nothing like a good, cold beer on a really hot day, and in Belgrade it's been really hot for a while. I've never heard of the "Fructal Alko" on one crate here; not sure it's some kind of beer, but it doesn't sound like it...

Pages 30 and 31 of this .pdf document (a magazine with some other very interesting articles)have an article on the Fructal line of products. In a nutshell, the Fructual Alko products are fruit based but alcoholic. Other Google searches were written in a language I cannot read, but perhaps you will be able to do so.

I can't help it; if something interesting pops up on a blog I'm reading, I just *have* to see what I can find out!

Fun post! Just noticed this entertainment news item - Andrew Firestone, star of "The Bachelor" ABC-TV reality show, married Serbian model and actress Ivana Bozilovic Saturday (The Associated Press). I wonder if they served Serbian pivo.

I like the geometric and color design of this photo. Very eye catching. Those trademarks really show where the picture comes from.

Hi! Thanks, Pat, for your explanation. I actually knew that Fructal produces juices, but what I'd meant (but poorly explained) was I hadn't realized that perhaps they make an alcoholic drink...but they don't!
