Ožujsko name originated from the Croatian word for month March, „ožujak“, because it has traditionally been considered the best month for brewing lager beers. On the other hand, nickname Žuja came from consumers as a sort of a shorter term for Ožujsko.When thinking about it, having a nickname means someone considers you close, considers you to be a part of a group or a team, so we decided to use this connection our consumers made with our beer and continue to communicate it.

When it comes to Zagreb and its citizens, Ožujsko has a direct connection with it as it is its birthplace. Zagrebačka brewery has been part of not only working life, but also cultural one since its opening in 1892. Zagreb is our home and Ožujsko is proud to be its favorite beer and growing as such each year. This makes us proud, not only because it is a reflection of succeeding in our goal to delight our consumers and bring them only the best quality of beer, but also, it tells us that we are good neighbors.
