Story of Czechvar Beer

Coming to you from the Heart of Europe

Good beer has been brewed in Bohemia since time immemorial. Therefore, when founding the city České Budějovice in Bohemia (Czech Republic) in 1265, the Czech king Přemysl Otakar II did not fail to also grant to its burghers the brewing rights, i.e., the right for malting, brewing, storing and selling beer at their homes. In the following centuries, the local beer became so famous because of its quality that it gained loyal customers in imperial and royal courts.

In the course of the centuries, small home breweries were disappearing and the beer was brewed in even larger facilities. on 15 April 1895, Český akciový pivovar was founded, whose current successor, B.B.N.P. brewery, carries on the local brewing tradition.

Czechvar ...Combination of Two Words

Beer production in the new brewery started on 7 October 1895. By the next September, the brewery produced its first 51,100 hectolitres of beer, which has successfully persevered, throughout the 19th and the 20th century and until the present time, all its excellent traditional taste and properties. All of this quality is coming to you now with the beer named Czechvar. the name Czechvar is a combination of two words – „Czech“ and „pivovar“ (in English "brewery"). It is a symbolic name of a beer coming to you from the Czech lands, from a city famous for its beer.

České Budějovice ...City of Beer

Throughout the year, České Budějovice is a city of beer. During the daytime, new hectolitres of the beverage are produced there, somewhat hidden in the tumult of everyday life, to be shipped to close and faraway destinations. But if you are lucky to be in the metropolis of České Budějovice region, enjoy its hospitality and discover the home of the Czechvar beer.
