This is the best choice on the coast. As was said here before: "People, this is THE ONLY store with a selection like this from here to, maybe, Istra or Zagreb - and if you look east, who the hell knows until where. It might not be as stocked as your fancy hometown/country stores, but, in the Croatian & even Ex-Yu contexts, you are underrating it".

Tiny bottle shop over the road from Fifes fish restaurant. Directly over the road from the harbour. Ridiculously well stocked fridges for the area. Get your cold ones and go and sit on the water. Magic.

Small but quite well equipped shop in the heart of Split, decent beers and prices

Little shop on the pier. Has a nice selection of Croatian and Belgian beers. It gives a chance to see a good range available. The staff is pretty indifferent though.

A tiny grocery store in Split harbour, with a small selection of Croatian, Dutch and Belgian beer. However, since the selection of beer in Split (and around) is beyond bad, this place is still worth a visit./3/9-13 Re-rated 4/9-14: A better selection this year with some nice and somewhat "hard-to-find-beers" on the shelves. Service is great.

This is very little grocery store, but it has very good selection of Croatian beers and pretty fine foreign beers selection. Staff is very kind and has some beer knowledge. It’s on very good and frequent location.

Walk in to what looks like a normal Balkan corner store but quickly you see a (by local standards) astounding selection of beers in the fridges. All of the major interesting Croatian beers, including those (like Vukovarsko) which are from the other side of the country. Already some boys hanging out outside in the evening, even in winter. The spot to be for low-key beer hunting in Split. I found a German beer that I hadn’t rated before and hadn’t seen elsewhere in Croatia so far.

A small liquor store within the UNESCO preserved core of Split city, as pointed out by Marko you can find many Croatian beers that are otherwise not available in the region. Prices are higher than supermarkets, but not for much as it’s typical for beer shops around Europe. Good to visit before the evening, when it can be really crowded and impossible to choose if you don’t know what to take. Small update: Selection gets better and better, seems like the owner really got into turning this to a mini beershop, not only Croatian beers. He stays away from more expensive Belgian stuff though. Probably wise for the location.

Found 14 beers that I hadn’t tried before, and they cold stored them for me for a few hours so I could pick them up just before I left. I had brought a print out of Croatias 50 best beers according to Ratebeer. The owner strongly disagreed on both style and nationality on quite a few beers on the list. Refreshing encounter

Well, a lot has changed in the last 2 years and nothing in some departments. The owner does his best to get his hands on anything he knows is imported - and the selection is now, without any doubt, the best in Dalmatia, possibly anywhere outside of Zagreb too. From any given macro & micro Croatian lager to, dunno Aventinus & Rochefort - yeah, it’s there. The shop’s almost completely devoted to beers, catering both to the crowds of people getting wasted nearby on Matejuška, and to people looking for good beer. While the selection has improved, the disposition of some people working there hasn’t, showing completely misplaced arrogance sometimes, but some of them are great & friendly, and they ARE overworked and damn efficient, so I won’t lower the service score. People, this is THE ONLY store with a selection like this from here to, maybe, Istra or Zagreb - and if you look east, who the hell knows until where. It might not be as stocked as your fancy hometown/country stores, but, in the Croatian & even Ex-Yu contexts, you are underrating it.

What’s probably the best store in Split for beer looks from the outside (and the inside) like a tiny grocery store relict left over from the Yugoslavian times, a dying sort that’s rapidly disappearing over the last 20 years, losing to cheaper chain stores, supermarkets and malls. What’s holding this one alive is the fact that it’s located on Matejuška -> one of the most popular (and central) places younger people go out drinking in Split. Combine the constant need for alcohol supplies there with an owner (a biker to boot) who is apparently somewhat interested in beer -> you get the only place where you can easily get the entire bottled and canned ranges of most breweries that bottle and can in Croatia, including Velebitsko and Staročeško which are damn rare in stores in this part of Croatia. Unless you want to go to a pub, this is the best place to stock up on those if you’re only visiting Dalmatia. Mind you, it’ll be really croewded in the evening, and drunken people pushing in 2m by 2m space can be a bit annoying. The staff are efficient at what they do (it would’ve been a catastrophe if they weren’t). You’ll pay quite a bit more than in regular stores, but hey, you likely won’t find some of the beers they have cheaper in Split.
