Budweiser Budvar Brewery is a brewery in the city of České Budějovice, Czech Republic, that is best known for brewing a beer known as Budweiser Budvar. In the United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, Brazil and Peru, the beer is marketed as Czechvar.Budweiser Budvar is one of the highest selling beers in the Czech Republic and exports into more than 60 countries across all continents. On the German market, it is the second best selling brand among imported lagers, first among imported beers in the Austrian market and in Great Britain the best selling Czech lager.HistoryThe history of brewing in České Budějovice, dates back to the 13th century Kingdom of Bohemia, when the city received the brewing rights. The original Budweiser Bier or Budweiser Bürgerbräu (Czech:Budějovický měšťanský pivovar), was founded here in 1785. The company began exporting to the United States in 1871. In the U.S., Anheuser-Busch started using the Budweiser brand in 1876 and registered it two years later.A second company (now named Budvar) was established in 1895 in same town by mainly Czech brewers, which also started exporting beer under the name Budweiser (being the German way of referring to something from the city such as a beer, while "Budějovický" means the same in Czech). These exports into the US market led to the Budweiser trademark dispute. Negotiations between the three companies, the two from the original town and the American Anheuser-Busch, about using "Budweiser" reached an agreement in March 1938 that allowed Anheuser-Busch to use the brand "Budweiser" only in North America.

  • The restaurant we visited with the team in late January 2017 at a time when just feast took place. We evaluated positively the professional approach to our customers, the willingness of the staff, the service and quality of food. We were very satisfied and will definitely be going back again.

  • Tought we get to taste more kind of beers, not just one little. Also I wanted a bigger shop at the end with cheap factory prices.
  • Awsome presentation and great restaurant this is not to mention the fantastic beer! Although the staff need some serious lessons in customer service (with a smile). Absolutely worth the visit!!!
  • Very descriptive tour showing the whole process, includes tasting fresh beer in the basement.
  • Great tour for a great price! It was really cool to get to go through the brewery, and they did a great job of explaining the whole process. Our tour was done in German and English and the guy did a terrific job.
  • We all love it
