yes. Laško is quite liked and cheap. Union you can find in supermarkets and bars, but it is not that popular (although i know some bars where Union was main brand, so ppl drank mostly it there).
but i think that popularity of SLO beers fell in last year or 2

It is not venomous as European venomous snakes don't have round eyes.

there are 2 main streams: Ožujsko and Karlovačko. there is nevernding war about which one is better or more popular.
but most people will tell you that the best is Velebitsko. and it is really good, different. especially ppl like dark Velebitsko.

third most popular and spread is probably Pan. it is quite young brand and when it appeared it was horrible (to me), but nowadays it is quite ok. they also can thank popularity cause they were first domestic brand which introduced 0,25 l bottles (which were extremely popular and cool here for one time). interesting, Ožujsko or Karlovačko is popular only in 0,5 l bottles (or q-packs 1,5 l or how large it is). when a waiter got you Ožujsko/Karlovačko in 0,33, you got desire to kill him. but Pan in 0,25 is acceptable

btw i belong to Ožujsko stream

But I like Ožujsko very much.

it got better in last, lets say, few months. i hated it sooner, it was awful, but now it is acceptable for a lager. i mean, nothing special, but acceptable.

btw, is some HR beer imported to SLO?

ppl here hate Becks i like it, it is kinda hard beer (not hard as alcocholicly hard, but is real beer for men, girls would find it bad). Bittburger appeard this year - to me it is totaly ok, but it doesn't approve those few % being more expensive than others.

my favourite are definitely czech, belgian and austrian beers.

No. But I have been importing them for myself because I prefer Croatian beers over Slovenian ones.

I prefer German, Slovene and Belgian beer. Even though I don't like Dutch beer in general, Grolsch is my favourite

Most people here don't like German lagers because they are quite pure and this real taste doest go well enough to down one pint after another. So 'piss' is rather prefferable

I don't drink enough beer to taste a real quality difference. I usually buy the second cheapest brand. The cheapest is Euroshopper beer, but that's for alcoholic tramps. The second cheapest is the home brand of the Albert Heijn supermarket chain.

That's where Timon works right ?

I usually buy branded beer since it's quite cheap in special booze shops, like 6 0.5l cans for 5 pounds

Until recently. I used to work there too for 5 years. I was the head of the fresh department for 2 years until I realized there are better jobs with a better financial perspective than a supermarket employee
