FOUR DECADES OF BREWING IN ISTRIA
One can easily say that nowadays almost everyone can brew and that beer production is no longer a secret.
In Istrian Brewery we openly talk about our ingredients and the production process in our brewing.
We use the homegrown malt for brewing all our beer products. Water comes from the Sv. Ivan spring on Cicarija mountain near Buzet. For hops, we use up to four sorts, depending on beer type.
In beer production, main fermentation lasts up to ten days. After that period, the very important process of secondary fermentation begins, lasting for 30 days, when the wort is converted in our well known liquid gold. This process uses most recent technology, however the expertise of our employees is the key factor.
We constantly invest in new technologies and facilities, as well as new knowledge about producing the perfect beer for our loyal customers, so they can enjoy more refined tastes of beer, the most popular drink in the world. New installations for water treatment and filtration gave opportunity for Istrian Brewery to fulfill the wishes and needs of every single customer, offering many different types of beers with different proportions of alcohol.
Our vision of development focuses on investments that are consistent with the preservation of the environment and usage of modern technology, which will ensure and continuously improve the quality of our products
After the beer went through all the processes of its creation, from main ingredients to the liquid ready for consumption, we fill it in various packages on several manufacturing lanes. We are the only supplier in Croatia offering beer in small non-returnable glass bottles of 0.2 liter. We also have standard volumes of 0.5 liters and 0.33 liters in returnable glass bottles, which is only one in brewery’s series of steps taken to preserve the environment.
Beer is a sensitive product, so it is of a high importance to take care of the impeccable cleanliness of the packaging, at the highest level, both in glass packaging and with barrels of beer. Standard barrels are filled in volumes of 25, 30 and 50 liters, and the full capacity of the two production lines can fill up to 100 barrels per hour.
The last major capital investment is a large capacity PET bottling production line. With this product line, Istrian brewery became a manufacturing leader throughout the region, filling the numerous brands of beer for many major retailers.
Our mission is satisfying all the needs of our loyal and future customers
Our beer is constantly controlled by the expert team that takes care of purity and quality of our products before they leave the production facility.
Quality management and continuous investment in people and production facilities have resulted in acheiving several important quality certificates.

- HACCP (2006.)
- ISO 14 001 (2010.)
