Ožujsko (fully Ožujsko pivo; lit. March Beer) is a Croatian brand of lager beer (5%). It is the flagship brand produced by Zagrebačka pivovara, the biggest brewery in the country which is a part of Molson Coors Brewing Company since 2013.
With more than 120 years of brewing tradition, Ožujsko beer is one of the oldest brands with uninterrupted continuity of production in Croatia. It is made from natural ingredients – barley, yeast, hops and water. Ožujsko has a golden color, is refreshing, has smooth taste & fine bitter flavor. It is best served at 5°C with rich and compact foam. It has won numerous gold medals and awards for its quality which only confirms its excellence. It was named after the month of March (Croatian: ožujak), when traditionally the best beer is made. With development of modern technology, constant innovations and investments in production this seasonality is no longer important for the quality of Ožujsko pivo and now it can be brewed all year round, delighting Croats and visitors 365 days a year.
Ožujsko is the leading beer brand in terms of sales in Croatia. For the last 15 years, Ožujsko is the official sponsor of the Croatian national football team.
