Sarajevska Pivara, Sarajevo

(4.2/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
The century-and-a-half old Sarajevska Pivara has never stopped brewing, even during Ottoman times, two World Wars, and the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. Visit the company that distributed drinking water to people during times of conflict. Today the company serves beer, traditional food, and soft drinks during much more peaceful times. Sample their selection of brews, which range from from blonde to dark, and ask to try some of the firm's award-winning beers and water. The company's regular brew and mineral water both won gold medals in 2011 from Monde Selection, a European organization that tests consumer products. Plan your visit to Sarajevska Pivara and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Sarajevo itinerary maker.

  • Good place to have a beer (there are some options, not too much.. but it is ok) or to lunch/dinner. Decoration is also good. 
  • We were a large group and had pre-ordered off of a very restricted menu (meat or vegetarian). We were served a chicken soup which was tasty but tepid, followed by a pretty good chicken stir fry accomp...  more »
  • Staff is friendly. Beer and food is cheap and awesome. The restaurant is a beautiful work of architecture. I will come back many more times during my three year tour here.

  • Light, unfiltered, dark, and mixed beers are available on draft. They also have premium in the bottle which tastes the best. The dark is a little sweet and the mixed and unfiltered are decent. The museum is a room full of the history of the brewery. Museum was $3KM
  • The place looks great, the waiters are superb, but beer is poor, this is nothing more than popular european Lager or dark Lager, very sweet, malty. If you are lookong for a good beer, do NOT come here.
  • Good beer, great interior
  • Worth the visit. Kind of touristy but still nice to have some beers.
  • The dark beer is particularly good, rich and a bit sweet.
