OK, this place is really on a different planet. Itís sort of a permanent flea market store that carries all the things you donít need, and would never know you wanted until you saw them. They just got a shipment of bicycles in, and were installing them in between the kitchenware and the plastic toys. But if you can imagine it, itís for sale here. On your left as you enter there are two coolers of beer, mostly Serbian lagers, several of which are not available elsewhere. Technically you have to drink them on site, or at least promise to return the empties. Prices were under 50 cents US per bottle, so it could only be a better value if they gave it away for free. Well worth a visit, on a stroll through a very industrialized and depressed section of the waterfront with great but unrealized potential.

Strange little store. "They have everything" I found about ten different beers in their fridge. The ones you can not find in a super market, are just standard Serbian lagers.
Go there, if you like the adventures of maps, harbours, the unexpected, gypsies on the way and just...something different.

This place is crazy. I admit, not the place itself SO much, but accessing to it through the gypsy settlements along the railways when you come from city center. I like yesprís route better. Anyway, it has a good selection of Serbian beers, some of which seemed quite hard to find, even in the big supermarkets. You can also drink a beer in front of the store by the seashore enjoying view over old rusty ships to Sava river. Interior is story for itelf, but itís fulfilling its purpose. A must.

By far the stranges beer shop ever. Almost like a flee market inside or a stuffed cupboard which happens to have two fridges in one corner. Beer selection was ok, I would some BG beers and others I could not find elsewhere. Shopping center on the other side of the river has a wider selection though. A bit difficult to find I thought. Once down from the bridge (take the stairs down) walk across the the rails and along the river for 100 meters - there is tree of signs of which one points in the right direction. A must stop for any ticker in Belgrade.

One of my absolute favorite weird locales in Belgrade. I discovered this down the street, in a very industrial and local-fisherman friendly stretch of the Sava river, when I was living nearby in 2009, when I first moved here.
Insane mix of tackle, supplies, foodstuffs and rare (if not terribly good) Serbian beers.
Really the only place in town Iíve seen for some strange regional Serbian beers.
Worth a stop for the completest or someone wanting a real taste of Belgrade oddity. My friend Marko said it well.
I love it.

This bizarre place was discovered by luttonm, and weíre lucky he did that - it has the widest selection of Serbian beers out of any other store we know of, including huge supermarkets!
To get here just go to the green tram bridge, climb down and go south following the road between rusty barges and run down (mostly) gypsy houses, until you see a store with 3 entrances - one for fishing gear on the left, bike repair on the right and a chaotic, warehouse-like grocery store in the middle, bigger than it would seem. The fridges are on the left once you enter. Dirt cheap, carrying Bip beers youíll struggle to find elsewhere, Zaječarsko, Valjevsko, the Weiferts, even the now hard to find MB and Merak, full macro lineups more or less. No Krugher & Brent and they still havenít gotten their hands on Jagodinsko and Niöko, but other than that, if itís bottled/canned and Serbian - itís there! Not all the time I guess, but hey. In any case, a must stop for any beer hunter in Belgrade, though a help from a local who understands the language might just be essential (canít judge that).
As for the patio, they do have 2 concrete tables there, but they are usually taken by (very colourful) locals. If Iíd bothered filming the guitar player/singer last time, heíd become a Youtube hit.. (though not because of his prowess). :D Still, you can sit on the wall around there, watch the barges and the dogs and rate a crappy but rare beer or three. And then you should probably go away. The ambiance is 1 as much as itís 4. The most "Balkan" RB place Iíve ever been to.
