Brigita beer to stay on market

ALTHOUGH Finance Minister Brigita Schmögnerová has resigned from her post, an eponymous beer named Brigita, produced by the domestic Topvar brewery, is to stay on the market. "The beer has gained a wide following, particularly among people fond of lighter beers," said Topvar marketing director Jozef Nemec. "But we're certainly not going to be making a František beer," he added, referring to Schmögnerová's replacement, František Hajnovič.
