Beer in Eastern Europe

Indy 67 | | May 19, 2008 10:18 AM

My husband and I will be heading off to Eastern Europe soon, specifically to Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic and I need some advice about beer choices in those countries.

Here's some background to help you advise me: I've only recently started drinking beer; it's not an age thing, since I've got an AARP card in my wallet. I just never seemed to like the taste of beer. Then, on a trip to China, I began drinking Tsing Tao and found I liked the taste. That led me to other Asian beers (Singha and Sapporo) when eating ethnic food back home in the US.

What beers will I find in the countries on our trip that I'm likely to enjoy? What beers might my husband enjoy since his favorite is Smithwick's?
