Our partner breweries
Brewery Bašta is located next to the restaurant “U Bansethu” in Prague-Nusle. Since its opening in 2007, not only local supporters but also a lot of people from a wide area come here to enjoy beer and food. The brewmaster Jan Kroužek travelled to several countries, where he got inspired by beer production in small breweries and transferred his knowledge to the production of great beers.
Under the previous regime, the historic brewery in Hořice was closed. It was run as a soda factory, extended of a few totalitarian “backdrops”, and then the building was left to deteriorate. In the new century, however, everything is different. The brewery became a cultural heritage site, a place of social events, and since 2017, beer has been brewed here again. The JungBerg mini-brewery adheres to pure recipes, brews great specials, but prefers lager with hops from Žatec.
Kail Brewery is located in Prague-Lahovičky and is adjacent to the Chuchle racecourse. It was founded by the Kail brothers in 2017 because of their love for the plant called hops. Its strength is mainly in beautifully drinkable ales. We prophesy it will rise to great glory.
In January 2019, a group of enthusiasts decided to rent a bankrupt restaurant that was closed for several months in Horní Počernice. The formerly famous restaurant opposite the train station had ideal cellars for building a mini-brewery, which was the main reason for reopening the restaurant. During the first half of the year, the mini-brewery underwent the necessary reconstruction, and in September, it brewed its first batch.
It is not so bad with shopping centres in Prague. For example, the one in Lužiny offers a brewery, among other things. In the adjacent restaurant, you can immediately taste how the Prague guys brew it. The menu offers four permanent types of beer (symbolized by four stars in the brewery's logo) + other specials during the year. The patron of Lužiny beer is the Czech band DOGA, which is why every beer has a tone of real hard rock.
The David Lynch among breweries. First, the name is inspired by Lynch’s album Crazy Clown Time, and second, the essence of this brewery is an experiment. Specials that you can't find anywhere else have been brewed by this flying brewery from Brno since 2016. One of the experiments was also to drive the D1 highway to taste Crazy Clown beers in the brewery U Klauna in Prague.
For many years, Vili Ilgner gained experience in big breweries to finally fulfil his dream in 2008 –brew his own beer. He symbolically called it Pilsner Ilgner and thus pleased his entire home village of Štáhlava. Six years later, the brewery moved to Druztová, where you can taste five types of beer on tap at any time in the barn pub. If you come here to visit, be sure not to miss the legendary brewery gate with mosaics á la Gaudí, which Vili himself designed. Brewing beer is actually a heartfelt family thing. The main brewmaster is Vili's son Honza, who is not afraid of experimenting with new beer styles and thus brings not only an emphasis on quality but also a modern spirit into the preparation of beer.
The Two Roosters brewery connects two crafts: beer brewing and beer pouring. In the morning, the brew Lokal Lager is brewed in the U města Hamburg (in the City of Hamburg) Karlín building, and in the afternoon, the beer flows from the tap. The quality guarantors are the brewery's founders – brewmasters Adam Matuška and master bartender of Lokal, Lukáš Svoboda. The brewery offers Pilsner-type lager, and the menu is complemented by selected beers from Matuška.
Royal Czech Beer, founded in 2012, has a royal future ahead of it. First, it carries the Czech tradition proudly and nobly. Second, it knows that spreading know-how is the privilege of the generous, so it teaches brewmasters abroad to brew Czech beer. Third, it knows that the competition also helps, so it learns about foreign beer from it. And fourth, taste it.
The owners, Ruslan and Olga, follow the motto: "If you like your job, you don't count the time, you just do what you love with love." And so, in 2014, they started as a flying brewery, which gradually grew into its own brewery in the historical area of ČKD in Vysočany six years later. Their beers and tree design will definitely entertain you!
Near Příbram, there is a small village called Podlesí. It has its brewery and a renowned restaurant, which is regularly ranked in Maurer's prestigious Grand Restaurant. The great thing is that when you come to the tasting, you can also stay overnight here at the pension. The brewery brews specialties and classics, and the restaurant also supports other mini-breweries.
Thanks to the Radouš family brewery, Honza Ilgner has been around beer since his youth. And today, he is also the main brewmaster. In addition, he also pursues his own beer project, The Barn, where he brews modern progressive beer styles – such as Gose. In collaboration with an illustrator who calls himself the Slakinglizard, he turned the designs of sour Gosebumps into great art. And why Barn? The entire beer technology, where Honza brews, is located in a renovated barn, and “barn” is an English word denoting such a building.
One day, two sympathetic brothers from a village in Polabí decided they wanted to drink real beer. And so they learned to brew it. They grow malting barley and draw water from their own marl well. They believe that a glass of beer must offer us a constant explosion of flavours and aromas from the first to the last sip, like New Year's fireworks. They have introduced a unique method of contacting the best breweries in the world, pushing their foot in the door and gathering knowledge. They return home to the brewery in Kněžičky and pamper their guests with unique beers with the acquired knowledge.
Do you know the feeling when something happens for the first time? The first ride in your own car, the first man-made fire, the taste of the first beer? With Parovar, you can experience the same all over again. Each batch of their 500-litre brewery is original. Whether it's typical lagers, top-fermented beers, or specials, the feeling of excitement comes with the opening of each can. Thanks to the unique cooperation with the Žatec Hop Institute, it also brews such beers that the brewing world will only start to discover. And all this under the personal supervision of the brewery owner and brewmaster, Pavel Rokoš.
A brewery you can't miss. The owners designed this first modern Pivotel and put it into operation in 2010 (in Roman numerals MMX). The building's airy and timeless design is underlined by the five materials used and only three colours, perfectly unifying everything. Respect for the brewing craft and traditions was born during dozens of visits to German breweries and resulted in the acquisition of state-of-the-art Kaspar Schulz technology (a first in the Czech Republic!) from the Mecca of world brewing, Franconia Bamberg. Thanks to this, the beer always has a stable high quality and taste.
The Matuška brewery from Broumy has gained a firm place among Czech mini-breweries since its foundation on Easter Monday in 2009. A big milestone in the brewery's history was the creation of one of the first IPA beers in the Czech Republic, today already well-known, the Raptor. The brewery has received one award after another, and today brews specialties and lagers, which have built a reputation among the general public in our country and abroad. Thanks to us, you no longer have to travel a thousand miles for a cooled can from Matuška.
The Rampušák brewery in Dobruška has a rich history dating back to 1890. The modern history of the brewery begins in 2007 when the Vedras family bought the unused buildings of the Dobruška brewery and malthouse and began to reconstruct the entire complex under the banner of Staročeský pivovárek Dobruška (Old Czech brewery Dobruška). In January 2008, the malthouse was restored, and after 13 years, in August 2008, the original boiler officially brewed its first batch of 12° Rampušák.
Bad Flash was founded in 2013, with two friends and owners of cult pubs in Prague being behind the creation – Zlej Hanz from the pub "Zlý časy" (Bad Times) and Libor Kult from "Kulový Blesk" (Flash). These two enthusiasts, who were lucky that their biggest hobby became their job, often went together on various beer trips bringing new and newer beers from abroad and different places in the Czech Republic. In the Czech Republic (and actually nowhere in the world), it has not been true for some time that if you want to brew beer, you need to have your own tanks and brewing house – there was the possibility to become a "flying brewery" and be able to brew your own beer. The combination of the names of the two pubs then brought together the rhythmically striking expression "Bad Flash", and a new concept on the beer scene was born.
The owners of the unorthodox flying brewery from Bratislava rebelliously claim that they do not care what people think of them. But they do care about what they think of their beer, in which they put their whole soul. They replaced conservatism with courage and easiness, and thanks to that, they bring beer lovers modern beer styles that are always refreshing and tasty. You will understand when you taste it.
OSSEGG Breweries is a concept of mini-breweries with a restaurant, which continues the tradition of Osek beer brewed in the monastery brewery in Osek since 1241. Ossegg Brewery in Prague is the first of a group of branded breweries in Europe. The restaurant's interior is created with distinctive design elements that will stick in your memory, just like the great local beer.
Love conquers all and also establishes breweries. This is also the case of the Vik family brewery, where Kubo and Natálie (Mr. and Mrs. brewermasters) share, in addition to the space around the brewery, a common household. Their brewing inspiration stems from Nordic purity and simplicity. Discovering the beer gulfs (“Vík” means “gulf” in Icelandic) of this brewery is a delicious adventure. For example, you can try Lagervík, Ipavík, Alevík…
Jakub Veselý's "flying" brewery. Already in his teenage years, Jakub was a charming dreamer, and before starting to drink beer, he was already brewing it. Then, according to him, when no one wanted to give him a job, he had to start his own brewery. And there was nothing better he could do. The brewery is thriving, brewing new and newer beer styles, and we applaud this healthy approach to beer and life.
The modern history of brewing in Dolní Břežany is the result of the relentless work of Mr. Miroslav Oliva and his people. Near the HiLASE laser research centre, they have built a modern brewery that brews traditional Czech-type beers. It is especially worth mentioning Laser Beer – a classic, tangy Czech light lager honouring its name. In addition to Czech classics, we also brew a range of top-fermented specials– semi-dark York, Gari wheat beer, Theodor black stout, and aromatic India Pale Ale.
The history of the Chateau Brewery Frýdlant is basically the mirror of our history. In the fourteenth century, skilled brewers began brewing beer here, improving recipes and increasing prestige for generations. The brewery even survived two wars only to close in 1949 and begin to decay. It took a while after the revolution, but 2010 meant a turning point, and since 2014, a craft brewery has been operating on its original site, supplying the Czech Republic and foreign countries with fresh beer from the north.
V roce 2014 se do Potštejna po sto letech vrátilo vaření piva, ale Clock si nehraje na mnohasetletou historii. Je to moderní pivovar a to potvrzují i jejich etikety, které jsou jak z marvelovek. Zaslouženě. Jejich superhrdinové Hektor, Twist nebo Exorcist už zachránili nejednoho pivaře od smrti žízní. Pokud se v Potštejně stavíte, můžete vyzkoušet klasiky i speciály rovnou u zdroje.
Since 2016, the Jičín mini-brewery has been flying from one mini-brewery to another, brewing beers without compromises. It primarily focuses on specials, so don't expect its beer to be bland. Černý potoka is here to experiment and, in its own words, to brew some of the best craft beers in the Czech Republic.
In December 2017, Jakub just opened today's already famous Beer Knír bar, also intending to brew beer. And he didn't expect it to go so fast - in half a year, he created the first batch of this flying brewery, aptly named Knír (Moustache). You can enjoy their draft beer mainly at the bar, but of course also at our Beer in Can. So enjoy your drink and get a good beer moustache.
Svachovka is a place that makes your body and soul feel great. There is no doubt about it since, in this one place, you can find a chocolate factory, a distillery, a hotel with wellness, and an inn brewery – all in the beautiful surroundings of the South Bohemian region. Glokner brewmasters enjoy constant exploration in a very, very large room of flavours, aromas, colours, and peculiarities of beer. The basic building block of their beer is Czech lager, but in addition to it, they also offer many specials that are also worth trying.
In June 1998, in honour of the 620th anniversary of granting the brewing right to Dobřany, the restaurant brewery "MODRÁ HVĚZDA (BLIE STAR)" was opened, brewing beer full of life. You can spend a lovely time in the brewery restaurant with several lounges, enjoy old Czech brewing specials and great beer, and if you do not want to go home, there is a local hotel, which is part of the brewery. The whole brewery complex, hotel, and restaurant are located on the square in the historic part of Dobřany.
The history of the Hlučín Brewery dates back to the 16th century and was restored to its current form with a restaurant in 1993. The name of the brewery and, in fact, the beer itself is symbolic – Avar is the name of a raider and fighter against competition from large breweries. You will not find specials here, but very honestly brewed bottom-fermented classics. Visitors who come to the brewery for the first time may be surprised by a layer of peanut shells on the floor all over the place. "We give guests peanuts for free in the afternoon and ask them to sweep the shells on the floor when they peel them," says the brewery's owner, Mr. Plaček. During the night, the shells absorb smoke from the restaurant, and there is clean air in the morning. Once a week, the staff sweeps the floor.
The motto of the Tambor family brewery in Králův Dvůr is "repeatable uniqueness". The classic way of brewing continues the tradition of brewing in the city and the Czech Republic, bringing, at the same time, exceptional new tastes, as evidenced by the limited edition of 4 special beers in beautiful cans from the workshop of artist Josef Sodomek, the official scenographer and graphic of the Forman Brothers Theatre.
This brewery from the metropolis of eastern Slovakia is located in the famous Levoča House in the city centre, with a brewing history dating back to the early 17th century. A sympathetic group of beer enthusiasts around Petr Škripek collects one rare award after another thanks to honest craftsmanship and catchy marketing. In the Košice Inn, beers such as Pivoruký Edward, Dědictví or Pivohošigutentag were created. I really like the Svět kokos or E.T. Pivozemšťan beers.
Rodinný pivovar Krušnohor sází zejména na výrobu piv s výraznější hořkostí. Že to dělají dobře, potvrzuje i řada ocenění, které za piva získávají dokonce i na mezinárodním fóru. Pivovar v posledních měsících prošel výraznou změnou designu, kde veselého pohádkového Jelínka vystřídala v logu krutá opice :) Jejich tekutý klenot - jak sami nazývají své pivo - byste rozhodně měli ochutnat.
Pivní láska je, když se zamiluje nadšenec do sládkové a vznikne pivovar. V tomto případě jde o létající pivovárek Chroust. Manželství Karolíně a Jirkovi Chroustovštím evidentně prospívá, jelikož se v pivovaru navařili litry ležáků, ejlů, stoutů i slaný gose. Nejen jejich pivo je vskutku důmyslné a lahodí vašemu jazyku, ale i vizuální stránka etiket vás nenechá chladnými. Jejich plechovky totiž nebudete chtít vyhodit.
Pivovar se nachází v Prostějově, jen kousek od Brna, v samém srdci střední Evropy mezi Prahou, Vídní, Bratislavou a Krakovem. Kluci z Axiomu ctí tradice ležáku plzeňského typu, ale stále více a více se jim zamlouvá experimentování se všemi možnými pivovarníckymi procesy. A tak příchazejí s jasnou vizi. Naverbovali ty nejlepší lidi, jaké mohli najít - takové, kteří se nejvíc hodí pro předloženou práci: vaření řemeslného piva světové úrovně v Česku a jeho export po celé Evropě a světě. Vysílájí zřetelnou zprávu: Axiom přichází!
