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.

Budweiser Budvar produced a record volume of beer last year

17. 3. 2017

In 2016, Budweiser Budvar produced a historically record volume of beer - a total of 1.615 million hectolitres, which represents a 0.8% year-on-year increase. Last year's beer sales could have been even higher, but the brewery had already reached the upper limit of its production and logistics capacity in 2015. Therefore, a lot of customer demands had to be turned down in many cases. Last year's increase in sales was enabled by a set of internal organizational measures and maximum effort of all employees. A further increase in beer sales will be possible after the completion of extensive investments of the anticipated value of CZK 2,000 million by 2020. The expected development of the brewery, however, can be completely brought to a standstill by the Contract Register Act. Budweiser Budvar is therefore seeking an exemption.
