It was a very hot week and my work in the museum, former drying hops building made me thirsty. While I was drinking cold beer I realized that beer machine is not a bad idea at all.

Ekomuzej hmeljarstva in pivovarstva (Eco-Museum of Hop-Growing and Brewing Industry. Slovenia grows 2–3 % of the world's hop crop, mainly in the Lower Savinjska Region where the hop-growing tradition dates back to the late 19th century. Originally the Hop Museum was established in the late 1950s through the combined efforts of the workers of the Kmetijski Kombinat ("Agricultural Combine") in Žalec, the Institute for Beer Brewing and Hop Growing, the Municipality of Žalec and the Tourist Association of Žalec. Until 1990 the collection was housed in Savin House and then moved to the premises of the Hmezad Export-Import Company.

In 2009 the museum was renamed to Eco-Museum of Hop-Growing and Brewing Industry in Slovenia and opened in the former hop drying facility in Žalec. Its interactive display presents the history of hop-growing and features old machines for processing hops, drying shafts, photographs, local hop species and hop packaging. The collection is rooted in the legacy of the local families whose lives have been connected with hop-growing. (source: Eco-museum)
