Interesting even for a teetotal

I have been there in August with a bunch of people and it was really interesting. Our tour was lead by Tjaša who brought us first to the brewing site and later to the museum related to Union's history and a panoramic on beer.
We concluded the visit with a souvenir and some tasting, there were also options available to me that I don't drink alcohol!

1.5 hours well spent

Very well done giving us the fascinating history of both Union and Lasko where their past is intertwined.
Now both owned by Heineken so the past is over The museum is full of strange looking equipment but I am sure it worked well in its time. All in all 1.5 hours well spent.

Slovenia knows how to beer

Our guide Tjaša made this beer experience unforgettable as she was very friendly and informative. Definitively suggest visiting here, even if you're not going for the tour - great restaurant with wide range of draft beer.
