Laško, a small town situated on the banks of the Savinja river, was first mentioned many centuries ago. Featuring the healing thermal water, whose properties were well known even to the ancient Romans, Laško has always been known for its special energy. Water from the Laško hills is renowned for its high quality which is of key importance for the character of beer. Gingerbread baker and mead producer Franz Geyer was aware of that importance, and in 1825 he started brewing beer here in Laško. Today, more than 190 years after the brewery was founded, beer brewing in Laško is still based on the love for this beverage and on the ancient traditions of master brewers. Not only beer but also honey produced in Laško with love and care is renowned for its high quality.
