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.

21. 6. 2017

Beer newcomers, seasonal beers, limited editions, and other innovations in the drawn beer area constitute an important part of a long-term program the brewery follows in order to help restaurant keepers maintain their regular customers and, of course, attract new guests. Budweiser Budvar has been offering limited editions and seasonal beers since 2012, the first of them being special beer made from fresh hops. This week’s offer of drawn beer will be variegated by two seasonal specialties in hundreds of Budvar pubs and restaurants, having been selected by Budvar’s sommelier Aleš Dvořák for this year’s beer season.
