This tour gives you an insight into the rich history of beer brewing in Slovenia and Ljubljana, which goes back a very long way. Proofs of this are 3,900-year-old beer barrels excavated at the Ljubljana Marshes. The earliest known brewery in Ljubljana dates back at least to 1592. Over recent years, Ljubljana and the Central Slovenia region have seen, in line with international trends, the establishment of an increasing number of microbreweries producing excellent craft beers in small batches and catering also for special tastes.

During the three-hour beer lover's experience of Ljubljana, you will taste eight different beers made by five different breweries, two based in Ljubljana and three elsewhere in Central Slovenia. Before rounding off your experience at the Union pub, you will take a tour of Pivovarna Union's Brewery Museum. The museum, a recipient of the European Museum Forum's EMYA Award, provides a historical overview of beer-making, gives an insight into cooperage, beer distribution, and beer raising and dispensing equipment, and displays two room reconstructions allowing you to retrace the story of the Pivovarna Union brewery from 1864 to the present day.
