The Mahnič Brewery and Restaurant are located in the settlement of Kozina, which has long been a popular stop for travellers because of its location at the crossroads of important transport and tourist routes (Ljubljana - Koper and Trieste - Reka), as well as its proximity to the Slovenian coast and Trieste.
HOW TO GET TO US
If you drive on the coastal highway, get off at the Kozina exit, drive straight across the first traffic light crossing and, after the (Istrabenz) gas station, turn left in the direction of Reka. Then after 100m, turn right towards the Kozina train station. The Mahnič Brewery and Restaurant are located right next to the train station.
A great number of tourists and travellers in Kozina were the reason why the married couple Marija and Vojko Mahnič started their business journey opening the ˮTavernaˮ Bar in 1991. The Mahnič’s built new restaurant premises in 1997 to provide innovative and rich restaurant services, including the restaurant and their own home brewery. Theirs was the first home brewery in the coastal region at that time, the Mahnič Brewery.
