Belgrade totally got me with its vibrant, lively atmosphere. Especially the central quarters of Dorćol are packed with cool bars and cosy cafés. Therefore I was not surprised to find quiete a number of decent beer inns and local craft brewers. Two of them, Dogma and Docker (yeah, the sound alike, but are each speacial!) I want to intrudoce to you on The Central European. Right here I will give you a brief idea of the nice brewery of Docker (my other suggestian, Dogma, is available at this site).
Docker is situated only a walking distance away from the Belgrade´s city center and especially easy to reach from the fancy quarters of Dorćol, though the last meters are maybe not really nice to walk (well, Belgrade…). This is becauce of the docks next to the Danube that – nomen est omen – house the Docker brewery. If you walk on for some 15 minutes, you would already see the Belgrade Silos, nowadays a cool subculture and event place (map / webpage). So the area seems uprising – and the beer is most certainly worth going here!
The Docker premesis combine brewery, taphouse and beer garden. Indoors you will find a simple, rather modern and spacy hall, offering seats even for bigger groups. To watch the brewing itself is kind of standard for modern craft brewers and of course possible at Docker: The equipment is situated right at the end of the seating area. Personally, I prefered to sit outside, where a second bar will serve you in order to speed up the process of bringing beers to the custome.
But – of course – you come here for the beer, not for the seating. And the Docker beers do indeed cover the full range of styles. I had a few very decent IPAs, but you can drink Lager, dark beers or sours, too.
So, if you are ever in Belgrade: Go down to the docks and have some Docker beers!
