2. Nevskoe Imperial
Type: Pale lager
Most Like: Pilsner Urquell
Why: Much like Hootie and his merry band of blowfish, this beer made its glowing debut in the early '90s and quickly became distinguished for its consistent quality taste. Unlike Hootie, this beer has remained popular, (probably) due to its rich flavor and hops-strong aroma.
Most Like: Heineken
Why: An easily-pronounceable libation, Zhigulevskoye was originally brewed in 1881 by a dude named Alfred von Vacano and was virtually the only beer brand available during the Soviet era. Luckily for you (and pretty much all of Russia), that era is over and this beer has been re-designed and re-introduced to the world as a cheap drinkable pilsner with a twist-off plastic cap, so you know it's good.
