The convenient location and good water properties of the Vrbas mountain river in Banja Luka region enabled the production of high-quality beer. However, there was another reason why this golden drink originated in Banja Luka. At that time, the favorite drink of the people of Banja Luka was homemade brandy, which in most cases had a bad effect on health. The Trappists came up with a plan to wean the people off the brandy with top-quality beer that served and was prescribed as therapy.
Isolated on the edge of the city, surrounded by greenery and forest, carefully protected from all kinds of pollution, with high-quality beer and consistent production and operations, the brewery resisted the economic downturn after the war and once again experienced the awakening.
For the first time, Nektar beer was produced on automated lines with a capacity of several thousand bottles per hour.
From a brave small brewery to the leader in the region! We are proud of every beer that has come out of production, every memory we have created together and each of the 150 years.
