Kamenice nad Lipou
This year we've brought you draft beer from nearby Kamenice craft brewery, which've been producing beer from 15th century. Townspeople held the brewing right for a long time. The beer production was taken over by nobility at the beginning of 17th century and the first brewery by the castle was founded. The look of today's brewery was created by the extensive reconstruction of Baron Geymüller which took place between 1860 and 1861. The project was megalomaniac and atypical in many cases according to the brewery experts. Building of brewery in Kamenice partly gave an impulse to modernization of the neighbouring competing breweries, so the planned capacity of 20,000 hl was never reached. The brewery successfully survived both World Wars but due to the nationalization and the advent of communist regime was definitively closed on June 30, 1947.
The building was purchased by the Brewery Kamenice Ltd. in the spring of 2016 with the intention of restoring the beer brewing. Mr. Milan Houška is the founder of the whole project. He decided to invest capital obtained from a previous business in engineering to save the old brewery and restore the historical appearance of the brewery. Both a large brewery and a microbrewery produce beer at present. The microbrewery serves for brewer´s experiments and beer workshops.
Legendary Czechoslovak drink with unique taste and aroma. A softly sparkling cola drink with unusual but addictive taste. Made of 14 herbs mixture and fruit juices flavoured with licorice. Created in 1960 and found nowhere in the world but in the Czech and Slovak Republic.
