Traditional production methods

The quality and unique character of Budweiser Budvar beer is based on the use of the best domestic raw materials: the highest quality heads of Žatec hop, selected Moravian malt, especially the company’s own culture of yeast and virgin clear water from 300 m deep artesian wells.

When brewing, the brewers from Budweiser Budvar use experience gathered and passed down over hundreds of years. They use the latest technologies, while at the same time taking care to keep to traditional production procedures in order to maintain the original quality and imitable flavour. 

Therefore, they also pay great attention to the time of maturing of the beer which in the case of a premium original lager is 90 days and for the special beer, Bud Premier Select can even be 200 days

Thanks to the high quality and original origin, beer from Budweiser Budvar is popular and highly appreciated throughout the whole world. In recent years this beer was awarded nine medals in the world competition for World Quality Selections or titles such as “Beer of the Year” which between 2001 and 2006 was awarded by readers of the well known Czech brewing magazine, “Pivní kurýr”. In 2000 Budweiser Budvar was awarded the title “Beer of the 20th century” for the excellent beer and excellent economic results.
