Staropramen brewery

Very Good!

4 of 5

The Staropramen brewery's history dates back to 1869, when it was founded in Smíchov.
From the very beginning the brewery prospered, thanks to the introduction of progressive new technologies, including one of the first bottle filling plants in the Austro-Hungarian Empire or the artificial cooling of cellars and fermentation cellars (the “spilka”.) In 1884, the brewery began to brew the Granát semi-dark beer. The brewery acquired its “Staropramen” name in 1913, after one of their beers, and in 1932 it became the largest producer of beer in the country.
