Went on a whim as the bars were all shut.... glad we did! Was a great experience and very informative and interesting history about how union was founded and developed.
Jerca was incredibly lovely and very informative... a great guide! A lovely free beer at the end in an old style pub!
A great hour and reasonable price!

Great staff, interesting tour and nice beer.

I visited both pub and Union Beer brewery factory guided tour in June 2020.

The guide and other local participants are so great that they allowed to have the tour in English just for us (myself and my wife)! (We can not understand local language)

Of course tour was so interesting, especially history of Union in relation of various government.
Thanks guys and the guide, you guys are so kind, just great.

At the end of session, we did taste Union beer, yeah it was nice.

Nice place, nice beer, great tour and staff.
Thank you!

素晴らしいツアーでした。
素敵なスタッフ、興味深い展示、特に歴史についての解説はスロベニアという国の歴史でもあり、大変ベ勉強になりました。

My cousin and I were really impressed in the museum tour and enjoyed the informations, spirit of union and history of this brewery. Anna was really kind and perfectly informed, so she could answer all our questions.
Thanks for this nice experience!

The tour with Tjaša and Maša was great. The museum was very interesting, displaying the history of Union brewery. Our favourite part was the beer tasting at the end and the good food in the Union restaurant was nice as well :) I recommend.

Tour for beer lovers

The tour was very interesting and guide Tjaša was awesome. We loved at the end, that you have degustation in museum old pub. Maybe would have been even better if they would show us the production line.

Our guide Jerca was awesome. She really knew a lot about the brewery and was able to provide some great information. The museum and set up of the tour is very relaxed and made for an enjoyable hour plus, you get a beer at the end!

Chill beer tour
Aug 2020
The union experience was really enjoyable. Our tour-guide Masha was very well-informed and gave us an engaging insight of the politics, technology, and history influencing the production chain. She also gave very clear and concise responses to our questions. She even showed us different styles of pouring beer afterwards. It was a bit unfortunate that we couldn't see the latest production line, but that was due to new company policy by Heineken.
