Hops are the symbol of the Lower Savinja Valley — hence name “The Valley of Green Gold”. Hop cultivation probably began in Eastern Europe around Bohemia, Slovenia and Bavaria before the 8th century, and from there spread to the rest of Europe (Neve, 1991). These are first records ever made of growing hops in Slovenia and it is what makes Slovenian hop grower proud today. Long lasting traditon and experiances with growing of green flower represent the major-ity of peoples’ earnings through the decades of their lifes here.
Today Slovene hopyards cover more than 1500 hectares; majority lie within Savinja valley. Slovenian hops, known also as Styrian hops else in the world are highly esteemed and their quality is also vindicated by the calibre of Slovene beer brewed, of course, using hops from the Savinja valley.
