History of Beer

Beer was probably the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world. The inventor of "the beer" are considered Sumerians living in southern Mesopotamia, approximately 5 thousand years ago. Sumerians used for brewing barley loaves, malt and water which were placed in a large container where fermentation took place. Hops was not yet known at that time, therefore achieving the bitter taste other ingredients were used (breads roasted in hot ashes, green mustard, sesame seeds).

Tradition in Bohemia

The tradition of brewing beer was probably brought by Slavs to the Czech Republic during their migration period. Beer is brewed from the beginning in monasteries, where hops grew. The first mention of beer in the Czech Republic comes from the year 933, when the Czech Bishop Adalbert built a Benedictine monastery in Břevnov and there began to brew beer. The main beer producers were thus monasteries, and later the nobility. The first written mention of beer dates back to 1118, when the brewery was founded in Cerhenice, which is considered the oldest in Bohemia.
