Beer in Macedonia

“There, where the sun shines forever, there is Macedonia…” are the starting lyrics of the song that famous Croatian singer Adolf "Dado" Topić wrote and sang about my country. A small piece of land in the Balkans, with lots of natural beauties, warm and hospitable people, traditional and tasty cuisine, the land of wine and beer – that is Macedonia.
