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.



Monsignor Vlastimil Kročil, Bishop of České Budějovice, blessed a special batch of beer in Budweiser Budvar Brewery today

7. 9. 2018

This afternoon, the Bishop of České Budějovice Monsignor Vlastimil Kročil, gave a benediction to a special batch of beer, making it already a second batch in the modern history of the brewery having received such a blessing. This year's “Blessed Beer” had been primarily brewed for charity purposes. During the Advent Market on České Budějovice Square, “Blessed Beer” will be drawn by volunteers. The proceeds from the sale are intended for the Diocesan Charity of České Budějovice. Part of the “Blessed Beer” in hand-packed bottles should once again travel to the Vatican as a gift to the Holy Father, Pope Francis.
