The remaining 10 countries I am struggling with a bit, Kazakhstan is the closest to under control but there are some logistical issues at the moment preventing it from happening. I also have a lead for Latvian beer which I am following up. Here's where you come in. If you or anyone you know can get access to beers from any of the following countries please contact me by email at gus.norris7@gmail.com. I am sure we will be able to come to an agreement to get it out to Australia.

The countries I am looking for:
ARMENIA, BELARUS, FAROE ISLANDS, GEORGIA, KAZAKHSTAN, LATVIA, LIECHTENSTEIN, LUXEMBURG, MACEDONIA & ROMANIA

Any beer from any of these countries would be amazing! Thanks in advance guys, hopefully we can get some more of these countries ticked off soon.

Remember its's always Beer O'Clock somewhere in the world!

  1. Hi Angus,
    I will be in Macedonia tomorrow, so I will do my best to pick up a beer and may be a glass of Skopsko for you.
    cheers,
