    I've heard that Cantillon is a lot easier to find in Europe and was wondering if its available at any shops/markets in Bratislava? I have a lot of coworkers traveling back and forth to our headqtrs there so was going to have them look for me :) Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers/Na zdravie!

    My wife is Slovak and having been there a handful of times now, I've had zero luck finding Cantillon in Bratislava.

    Might want to try this place for the off-chance: http://www.presporskapivoteka.sk/pivo-ponuka/

    Best of luck and na zdravie!

    Edit: lived in Belgium for a few years so if your coworkers fly Ryanair out of Charleroi to Bratislava, they could run to downtown Brussels (bottleshops or Cantillon itself) before traveling from BRU to Charleroi. Extended layovers are key!

    That store has Boon and 3 Fonteinen. Both of those are pretty good.

    Give us an update if you figure anything out. I live in Austria about an hour away from Bratislava, so it would be easy for me to pop over there if they have a good deal.
