Černokostelecký Pivovár is inviting everyone to their 15th anniversary party next Saturday 19/3, and, if you are around, you shouldn't miss it. Seriously.
Unlike most of the other “phoenix breweries”, Černokostelecký Pivovár is one of the few where the brewhouse wasn't scrapped after it was shut down. And the best about it? It could be said it's the heart of the restoration works and it should soon (this year, maybe, Vodouch?) come back to life. Now, bear in mind that this is not your puny, automated, computerised gear that you can see at pretty much every microbrewery. No, this is a 160 hl wood or coal fired bugger with two 80 hl coolships under the roof, and they will use it all for making beer. Even cynic cunt like me must acknowledge that there's something more than having a successful business that is driving these people, and “passion” is the best word I can come up with.
|The coolships, which they hope will work fine.|

Wow, how far is it from Prague?ReplyDelete
40 Km East/South East of Prague. A visit here should be on the top ten list in Czech if you are into historical brewing and breweries.ReplyDelete
I'm looking into organising a visit for the brewery history society so it's on the list now and any other suggestions welcomeReplyDelete
Pivovar Dalešice is another one you may want to look into. Let me know if I can be of any help at least with Černokostelecký PivovárDelete
