Brewmaster Ladislav Klazar wakes at 5:30
to take his morning tour of the brewery. Though his duties involve overseeing
the whole operation of brewing, from controlling the quality of ingredients
to the business end of things, he takes time to see that every batch is
sent off with the uttered wish "Go with God!" He takes pride
in being brewing with the old traditions and looks forward to the growth
of Czech craft beers. Mr. Klazar started his life with beer as a part-time
job washing kegs and quickly rose to become on of the Czech Republic's
youngest brewmasters for a mid-sized brewery.
