The tour starts at Hotel Grof and leads towards Žovnek Castle where the ancestors of the Counts of Celje lived. We will visit the castle and then continue cycling past Lake Žovnek followed by a short break at a the local Green Gold Brewery which has been involved in hop production for more than a century. Their ancestors were the first to cultivate the hops in Savinja Valley. We will take a tour through the brewery and taste their beer. After we continue cycling among the green hop fields to the local Clef Brewery, where music and beer intertwine. At Clef we will taste various types of beer named after famous Slovenian song titles.
