PLAVUŠA | Blonde Ale Beer

PLAVUŠA | Blonde Ale Beer

Brlog is a social enterprise evolved from Maja & Ana's home brewing hobby, and is located in Zadar. It was crowdfunded in 2016 to become Croatia's first cooperative craft brewery, gathering 14 members from all over the country. Their first craft beer is called “Plavuša”, blonde ale with three different malts and four American hops. And this is their story.

What you should know is that they are two women who brew their own beer, not only for the taste, but for the sheer pleasure of making it. Their story is quite inspirational, since they are the first women in Croatia to be making beer, and may we add, a great beer!

They first started making it in their apartment, on their balcony, and were limited with the space and equipment so they couldn’t produce as much beer as they wanted to. The next step was crowdfunding campaign, a really successful one we must say, that allowed them to produce much more beer for their fellow-citizens who love it!

Maja and Ana were so resourceful for one of the promotion campaigns,  they simply brought a fridge and their beer to the seaside boardwalk and shared it with all the people who were walking by. Lucky them! Did you ask yourself why Brlog? Well, beer is a product that can only be made when the makers show persistence, hard work, diligence, courage, and friendship. In a word – Brlog (a den)!

Brlog je zadružna pivovara koju su osnovale dvije simpatične Zadranke, Ana i Maja, iz svoje ljubavi prema pravljenju piva. Prvo craft pivo koje je izašlo iz njihove proizvodnje ima genijalan naziv - “Plavuša”. Radi se ale svijetlom pivu i četiri vrste američkog hmelja. Ovo je njihova priča.

Maja i Ana su počele izrađivati svoje pivo, ne samo zbog stvaranja vlastitog okusa, već iz čistog užitka koje imaju u pravljenju piva. Njihova priča je poprilično inspirativna, jer su one jedine žene koje se u Hrvatskoj bave proizvodnjom vlastitog piva, i to izvrsnog!

Prvo su počele s proizvodnjom u svome stanu, na balkonu, ali bile su ograničene s prostorom i opremom tako da nisu mogle proizvoditi onoliko piva koliko su željele. Iz tog razloga pokrenule su crowdfunding kampanju kako bi si mogle priuštiti opremu i prostor za proizvodnju većih količina piva.

Na sreću svih Zadranki i Zadrana kampanja je bila uspješna, i proizvodnja je mogla početi! Zašto na njihovu sreću, pitate se? Jedna od njihovih kampanja izgledala je ovako: donijele su na rivu frižider pun piva i dijelile ga svim prolaznicima!Gdje je zagrebačka riva kad ju trebaš?
