A large place with an average selection of house beers available. Sat outside on the large tables, the goulash was quite tasty. Worth checking out if you have time.

A nice brewpub with 5 beers on offer with an adress in the middle of the city. The beers are apparently slightly variable and were mostly enjoyable. The food menu offers a few croatian specialties at reasonable prices. Overall, a good brewpub experience.

Large beer hall with massive wood tabels, nice atmosphere, the service is good and fast, but during the weekend evenings you could wait your beer for 15-20minutes. Also on few other locations: Ilica 49 (center), Tkalčićeva 36 (two minutes walk from main Ban Jelačić square), Božidara Adžije 16, Samoborska cesta 217 (west suburb).

As Per said, Central European style large beer hall. Beers are worth of sampling and food was ok.

The Božidara Adžije location was the first outlet to open after Medvedgrad was reorganized as a chain of pubs supplied from a brewery (first in Oroslavje, now in Samoborska). Slightly out of the regular way, but still central and easily reachable in any case. Quite large, with a fine patio. All of these seem to serve the same types of food, with generally good portions for the price. Had some ćevapi quite cheap during some happy hour, they were ok. The beers (light, amber, dark & strong dark lagers, wheat and, since July 2013 a cherry beer) are quite a bit above the Croatian standards, and though not thrilling, really appreciated. The quality of the staff varies from place to place, and varies from very good overall to bad, a mixed bag in general. Never had any problems there, but I haven’t visited it often.

A big place with typicak central european beer hall feel to it. Both the beer, the service and the food is of solid quality.

Excellent quality beer and food and a sociable atmosphere. Waiters told us when the wheat came on so we could scoop it!

Božidara Adžije location, which is a nice building with a large outdoor beer hall area (though it was too cold to enjoy the day I was there). Five of their own beers, available in a few sizes, and it appears now large 750ml swing-top bottles for take away. The beer is actually terrific, crowning thing to find in the Balkans. Food is Croatian pub food, nothing was particularly special but it was all decent. The huge mixed grill plate with potatoes and baked beans (which comes with a .5l beer) is actually a thing to behold, and tasty enough.
A terrific spot and must-see if in Zagreb

Visited three of the 5 places, Adzijine, Ilica and the pub at the brewery itself, outside of Zagreb. Service was very mediocre, when we were visiting the place by ourself. According to one of our contacts in Zagreb, Medvedgrad was known for bad waitering. When we were there with one of the employees and the boss’ sun, there was of course no problem.
At all places they serve all of their beers, at most of them also all the food, most of which is home made, even the sausages and the rolls! How fresh can you get it? Prices are very reasonable too and the beers are pretty much the best you can find in Croatia (see my beer ratings). So no excuse not to go there.
Interesting fact: you can pick up their 4 beers (the 5th is a mixture of two) in 1L bottles at any of the pivnica’s. You have to keep them stored cool though. So take an electrical cooling box if you want to export them. ;-)
