- Zima is a lightly-carbonated alcopop beverage made by the Coors Brewing Company. It is an un-hopped beer with flavoring agents added, and has slightly more alcohol than an average American lager.
Zima directly means "winter" in Croatian, Polish, Czech, Macedonian, Serbian, Slovak, and Slovene and in transliteration from Bulgarian and Russian languages; the name is also reminiscent of "zymurgy", the science of fermentation, or brew-making.
