A decade of moderate growth (1970 – 1980)

In the seventies, Pivovarna Laško enjoyed the fruits of intensive investments in the sixties. In 1972 the milestone of 500,000 hl of sold beer was reached and surpassed, which means 35-times more than in 1955. A decade of moderate growth followed, in which the brewery also acquired a new filling facility near the Savinja river (on the lower side of the railway, in 1974). At the end of the seventies, a new, modern office building was built.

 

Laško is a beer with tradition. We have been brewing it for more than 185 years.
In 1889, after the company declared bankruptcy, it was purchased by a brewer from Žalec, Simon Kukec. This nationally conscious Slovenian went down in the Laško brewing history as an excellent organizer, financier and entrepreneur, fond of novelties. He established a new type of beer and the first beer brand - the thermal beer, which still exists today in a slightly different form.
