    By "Baltic beer", do you mean a Baltic Porter? It's a style of dark, strong Lager, and plenty of American craft breweries make them. You shouldn't have too much trouble finding one.

    If you mean a beer from one of the Baltic countries, try your local Russian market.

    Zywiec makes one of the best out there hands down(in my opinion), them and Komes. Happy hunting bud!

    Not sure where in Ohio you are, but if you are in the NE Ohio region, Hansa Import House on Lorain in Ohio City (Cleveland) gets a lot of unique eastern euro import beers I’ve never seen anywhere else.

    The best Baltic beers come from Latvia. Make sure you try:
    - Uzzavas (light and dark) - I prefer dark
    - Madonas brewery - Unfiletered is the best

    Coincidentally, I had a Baltic beer last night. It was Must Kuld Porter from Pohjala Brewery in Estonia. It was very good. I guess the other two choices are Latvia and Lithuania.

    Sinebrychoff Porter from Finland is one of my favorite Baltic Porters. Check Beer Menus to see whether you can get it in your area. I'd recommend it.
