Zatec Brewery

Situated right in the heart of the famous hops producing region, you'll know it immediately when tasting their distinctly flavored brews. Brewmaster Miloslav Hervert tells that's what gives them the edge--simply the freshest hops of any beer using Zatec hops. After a lifetime of working with beer, Mr. Hervert will be headed to retirement soon but the family tradition will be carried on by his brother who works at Staropramen and Nephew at Vyskov. He's seen the ups and downs of the brewery and it hasn't been easy but is happy, as any Czech would be, to have spent a life working with beer!
