History of the brewery

Budweiser Budvar Legend



Maturation Time

It takes a while to brew a good beer, and even longer to brew a great one. Budweiser Budvar lager acquires its mellow flavour and mild to moderate bitterness during the 90 days it spends maturing in our cool lager cellars.


Only the Best Ingredients

The exceptional character and consistent quality of Budweiser Budvar results from the emphasis we place on using only the best ingredients.



Protected Geographical Indication

Budweiser Budvar is never brewed on licence, but only in its place of origin. Consumers can be sure that every drop of their favourite beer was brewed in only one place in the world – České Budějovice.


Genuinely Czech Beer

The beer produced in the Budvar Brewery in České Budějovice can justifiably boast the title ‘Genuine Czech Beer’, which is, has always been and will always be our nation’s gold.

Budweiser Budvar, N.C.

Budweiser Budvar Brewery has been one of the most successful food processing enterprises in the Czech Republic in the long term. Founded in 1895 under the name of the “Czech Joint-Stock Brewery”, it brewed its first batch on 7th October 1895.



Due to great interest the special theatrical tours of the brewery in historical costumes are going to take place again in October

27. 9. 2016

On the occasion of last year’s celebrations commemorating the 120th anniversary of the brewery’s founding, Budweiser Budvar’s Visitor Centre prepared special theatrical tours. Instead of the usual commentary by guides, the visitors were given the chance to watch the key moments in the history of the brewery through acted scenes. Due to great interest four more theatrical tours were repeated in the spring. Since all the tickets were sold out again, four more special tours are going to take place during October, namely every Wednesday at 7.30 p.m. The tickets for the price of CZK 200 must be booked in advance.
