Completely by accident, I discovered a chain of supermarkets here in LA that apparently specialize in Armenian/Eastern European groceries (Jons for anyone interested). I walked into their beer section and was dumbfounded by the large selection of beers I have never seen before. I walked out with Baltika's wheat beer that I've read about, but could never find.

Any opinions on what else I should try? I've had most of the standards Baltika, Okocim, Zywiec, etc; I'm looking for something a little more eccentric.

Baltika's wheat, btw, was really good. Nothing crazy, just a solid hef along the lines of Paulaner.

I doubt the Berkely, CA brewery counts as eastern Europe, but this is my favorite Pilsner:

Award winning European beer, Trumer Pils, now available in DFW | pegasusnews.com | Dallas / Fort Worth

I highly recommend Svyturys Ekstra.

I'm also a fan of Utenos dark, and some of Kalnapilis.

All of them are from Lithuania.
