BELGRADE - Serbia's BIP beer, once the most popular lager in the Balkans, became widely available in Northern Macedonia this month.

It is imported by the Tikves Winery.

"A novelty for this market is kvas, which consumers will be able to try for the first time," BIP said in a statement.

BIP's Belgrade plant - one of the few that have retained the traditional way of making beer - has recently started producing its own variety of the Russian beverage with natural blackcurrant and lemon flavouring.

In 2017, the BIP board of creditors accepted an offer by Serbian-based company M-6 Eden, owned by Northern Macedonian businessman Svetozar Janevski, to lease BIP and all its brands for 76,000 euros a month.

Janevski is also the chairman of the Tikves board of directors.
