    I went to Bratislava a couple of years ago, before I got into beer reviewing ;), so my advice isn't the best.

    I can't recommend any specific beers, but most of those that you come across will be pilsners. You should also find some dark lagers which have a bit more character. As well as Slovak beer, it should also be easy to find Czech beers and perhaps others from surrounding countries. Try the supermarkets (there's a huge Tesco in the city centre that had loads of beer for sale).

    I'm not sure which bars are the best for beer, but you could try a visit to the Slovak Pub near the centre. It's decorated as a traditional Slovak restaurant/pub, and as I recall was very cheap for food and drink.

    Try having a look at BAs beerfly section for Bratislava as well.

    Have fun - if nothing else, it's a pretty cheap place to visit.....
