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.

Who can play poker with an exposed hand? The Contract Register Act poses a threat for Budweiser Budvar

26. 1. 2017

Budweiser Budvar has evaluated the functioning of the so-called Contract Register Act in a trial mode. The experience so far after 7 months confirms that the impact of this Act will cause harm to the business and financial areas as well as negatively affecting the corporation’s economic activity after 1st July 2017. The existing financial stability of the company is thus fundamentally undermined Ing. Petr Žáček, the Economic Director entrusted with the management of Budweiser Budvar informed the MPs of the Constitutional and Legal Committee of the Chamber of Deputies about the current situation today. Mr. Žáček also appealed to the MPs not to harm Budweiser Budvar by their decision.  Despite that, the Constitutional and Legal Committee has not commented on the exemption of Budweiser Budvar yet and recommend returning the Act with all amendments for a second reading.
