BERNARD FAMILY BREWERY
On 26 October 1991, Stanislav Bernard, Josef Vávra and Rudolf Šmejkal bought the bankrupt Humpolec brewery at an auction under the “small privatisation” scheme. The dream of building a brewery that would not only brew honest Czech beer, but also have its own opinion began to come true. During the first ten years that followed the privatisation (the brewery was sold at five times its book value and was obsolete technologically), the brewery was literally fighting for its life. Thanks to the quality of the beer, focus on customer service and gradual development of the brand, we made our dream a reality. BERNARD became a well-known and popular brand nationwide.
To distinguish our beer from the beers on the Czech market, we chose to make honest traditional unpasteurized beer, brewed with craftsmen skill from the best ingredients. Thanks to its traditional procedures, BERNARD beer is stands out for its harmony of fullness and bitterness.
