Renewal of the Moravia brand

The first batches of bottom-fermented beer were created in 2016 in the original building of the malting plant in Kotlářská. The PIVOVAR MORAVIA brand was registered after many years, so it was possible to start continuing the famous tradition. We set a clear goal: to brew excellent, interesting bottom-fermented beers, so-called lagers.
