Saturday’s “Open Day in Budvar” is going to commemorate the 119th anniversary of founding Budweiser Budvar Brewery

16.9.2014 České Budějovice

On 20th September, Budweiser Budvar, N.C. is going to celebrate the 119th anniversary of its founding with a cultural event for the general public called an “Open Day in Budvar”. Budweiser Budvar’s direct predecessor - the Czech Joint-Stock Brewery, was founded by Czech brewers who followed in the more than 700-year old tradition of brewing beer in České Budějovice (formerly called Budweis). The first batch - a mere 200 hectolitres, was brewed in this brewery on 7th October 1895 by the brewmaster Antonín Holeček. Since 1895, the brewery’s brewing house has seen another 9 brewmasters change hands in the position (the tenth being Adam Brož, Ph.D. presently). During the first year of its operation, the brewery’s overall production reached 35,223 hectolitres of beer. Budweiser Budvar’s last year production was 40 times higher (1,424,000 hl). In the 119 years of its existence, Budweiser Budvar has produced a total of 47 million hectolitres of beer.

2.9.2014 České Budějovice

On Friday 29th August, the Budweiser Budvar Brewery’s brewing house experienced an extraordinary event, as two special batches (800 hectolitres) of 16° BUD B:STRONG were brewed using fresh cones of Saaz “poloraný červeňák” hops harvested only several hours before on the “Splav“ hop field in the cadastre of the hop-growing municipality of Blšany. The volume of the beer brewed represents double of last year’s volume. Owing to its extraordinary long maturing period (200 days), the beer made from fresh hops will reach its consumer maturity in the second half of March 2015. It will be available in selected restaurants not only around the Czech Republic, but in several other countries as well.
