A brief history

The tradition of brewing beer in Cesky Krumlov comes from the beginning s of the town. The first written documentation is from 1336.

A year later was established a source of very high quality water, that is used until today. The increasing rate of beer consumption was a good reason to rebuild a part of the Rosenbergs armoury for a brewery.
