Dear visitors, due to the serious epidemiological situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, there are currently no excursions or courses in our breweries. We are very sorry for this situation, because we like to show all beer lovers where and how their favorite drink is brewed. As soon as the situation stabilizes, we will be happy to welcome you in our breweries. You can find information about renewed excursions here. Thank you for understanding, and we greet you all with the beer brewer's greeting - God bless you. We wish you good health and look forward to seeing you soon.

Technology of production and beer tapping
The beer production and tapping technology course will guide you through the entire process of brewing beer - from receiving the raw materials to filling individual types of containers.
