Forget Belgium, Germany and the Czech Republic - there are other nations in Europe that brew excellent beer. And Lithuania is one of them, according to TravelPulse.com.

Listing the "underrated beer countries of Europe", the website believes that beer lovers should look outside the familiar brewing superstars and discover great beers in countries like the UK, Austria, the Netherlands and Lithuania.

"More thought of as member of the "I can't find that on a map" club than the "underrated beer countries of Europe" club, Lithuania is a proud and bountiful beer-producing nation. Home to a one-of-a-kind beer-brewing culture that was suppressed and nearly stamped out by the Soviets, this Baltic nation is back on the map and experiencing a beer-making renaissance.

"Lithuania is the setting for some of the most unique beer sampling anywhere in the world, as the yeast used by many Lithuanian brewers has been found to be absolutely and entirely extraordinary. Lithuania's beer trail is based around the northern town of Birzai, and its rural outskirts are home to scores of breweries making rustic farmhouse ales full of malty, earthy and fruity flavors found nowhere else," according to TravelPulse.com.
