Beer & Wine Tasting Private Trips
The tradition of brewing beer on the territory of what is now the Czech Republic stretches back to the Celts. The first written mention dates back to 993 AD and proves that the Benedictine monks in the Brevnov Monastery brewed beer. The first historical evidence of beer making is King Vratislav II’s foundation deed of the Vysehrad Cathedral. This deed was issued in 1088 AD. Brewing in the 12th century was not the privilege of monks; it was a generally popular activity among the population. Independent malt shops and breweries developed from privileged burghers’ brewing houses in the 14th century. The gentry started brewing beer on a large scale at the beginning of the 16th century. Towns also founded breweries, intending to use their revenues to cover public expenditures. Competition between breweries started growing primarily after the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) and led to diminished production. The industrial revolution in the first half of the 19th century in brewing terms was characterized by the transition to the new bottom fermentation technology, the introduction of new machinery, and the rise of large industrial breweries with high production capacities.
