Until 1882 he was employed by a German brewery, from which he was dismissed because of his unwavering Czech patriotic sympathies. He supported Czech patriots, and sent his children to a Czech school. This experienced brewer with 16 years of experience was one of those who built the Litovel Brewery in 1893 – at that time still under the name of the Agrarian Brewery and Malt Plant in Litovel. When the brewery was founded, he also decided to buy hops not only from the Žatec region, but also from local producers from the Tršice region.
We brew our Litovel beer in the spirit of tradition, using classic processes and the highest quality ingredients. The past binds us to this because the Litovel Brewery has been built by enthusiastic people who have endeavoured to offer great beer, bearing traces of the region in which it is born. These prominent personalities were involved in the fate of the unique golden brew from Haná and are an inseparable part of its history.
