I’ve been waiting very long for this to happen. In Ljubljana we do have nice pubs, where you can get yourself special specimens of beers, like Patrick’s pub Patrick’s Pub, Sir William’s Pub and others. But what was missing until now was an expert beer shop, where a beer lover (like me) can get exactly what he wants, from wherever he wants. The shop is located in the very core of the city, between Stari trg and Mestni trg in the back of an atrium in an old house and one can pass by without even noticing it. That would be a mistake!
When entering into a small lobby you are presented with a shelf wall, where different “families” from all over the world wait for you to pick them up. “Oh my god”, I thought the first time: “I’m in heaven.” Lagers, Pale Ales, Wild Ales, Stouts, Porters, Ambers, (black) I.P.A-s, Trappists, Lambics, fruit beers, from Belgium, Germany, USA and many other countries. There are just too many of them to choose from at once, so my suggestion is to try Bevog Ond Smoked Porter, which is a rather unknown brew from Slovenian brewer which rates no. 2 on the RateBeer Best 2015 list.
Another possibility is trying beers one by one, not with the intention to drink yourself silly, but to enjoy the pre/mid/post-taste and value the hard work of the brewers.
