This is a must-do tour for all beer lovers, who want to experience Istria in a slightly different way than usual.
Our starting point is a small town Buje, where the San Servolo brewery found its home. The brewery claimed its name after saint San Servolo, the proclaimed guardian of the town of Buje. San Servolo produced the first Istrian craft beer, and today it offers 6 different beers, ranging from lager to an American pale ale. Here you will learn all about beer production while tasting the wide range of fine craft beers.
Our next stop is Novigrad, pictresque town with rich cultural and historical heritage. Novigrad's Old Town might be small, but it's full of charm and history that dates back to Roman times. From fortification walls, the St. Agatha Church, lovely promenade and numerous other attractions, Novigrad will easily win your heart.
After sightseeing, it's time to loosen it up a little. We'll round up this trip by visiting Booze & Blues bar, settled within the beautiful hotel Nautica in Novigrad. Enjoy great music and a wide variety of beer styles that perfectly blends with blues concept.
By the end of the tour, you will not only be able to identify different beer styles, you will also have gained a new appreciation of the craft beer culture as a whole.
