Today, two major beers dominate the market and both breweries are currently owned by Laško Brewery (Pivovarna Laško) after buying Union brewery with the Interbrew. Both breweries offer a variety of beers, but the most popular are plain lagers, Union beer and Laško/Zlatorog beer. The main beer is lager, drunk in over 95% of the cases.
Since both are lagers, the beers are similar. Laško is a bit more bitter. Union is the beer of the capital city, Ljubljana and Laško is mostly drunk elsewhere. Estimates give Laško beer a 60% market share.
