The first beer fountain in Europe opens its taps

Europe`s first beer fountain will start operating on 6th September 2016 in Žalec. The opening ceremony, which will start at 19:00, will be enriched by a cultural programme, but the emphasis of the event will be on beer. The fountain will dispense a variety of beers, but only ones which are produced with Slovenian hops. Be one of the first to have a beer from the beer fountain!

The beer fountain Green Gold is a tribute to the hop heritage of the Lower Savinja Valley and Žalec, which is the centre of hop growing in green, active and healthy Slovenia. It will start to operate on 6th September, with the grand opening of the fountain at 19:00.

At the fountain in the Land of Green Gold, you will be able to taste only those beers which are produced by Slovenian and Styrian hops, from specially designed mugs, designed by Oskar Kogoj, a renowned industrial designer and honorary citizen of the Municipality of Žalec. The mugs are produced by Steklarna Hrastnik and you will be able to buy them in the Tourist Information Centre in Žalec, in the shop with products with the Green Gold label, in the Eco-Museum of Hop-Growing and Brewing Industry in Slovenia, and in some restaurants around Žalec.

Cheers to the first European beer fountain!
