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.
