and local region
BREWING BEER The city of Pardubice has a long history associated with beer. Vilém z Perštejna (William II of Pernstein), a Moravian aristocratic, recognised the potential of beer centuries ago. As did the founders of Pardubice brewery, a joint stock company set up in 1871. And we know it too. Beer. Tradition. Pardubice. FOR 150 YEARS

01_pernstejn BEER FROM THE CITY
OF REVERED NOBILITY
Brewing beer is a tradition in Pardubice, one dating back to the early 14th century, as reflected in the names of the various types brewed. The Pernštejn brand – registered in 1972 – continues this legacy. The eleven-degree beer bears the name of the foremost member of the historical aristocratic family, Vilém. Situated at the confluence of the Rivers Elbe and Chrudimka, the city is also home to Europe’s toughest steeplechase. Its traditions are conveyed in a title given to a special 14-degree beer – Taxis (the race’s infamous obstacle). Porter – a special, dark, nineteen-degree beer – holds a unique place in the city’s brewing heritage. First brewed in 1890, it remains unmatched in its strength and superior quality.

02_historie VILÉM Z PERNŠTEJNA In 1491, the settlement of Pardubice was purchased by the richest Moravian aristocratic, Vilém z Pernštejna. He set about establishing the trade of brewing in the town a decade later. Four breweries were founded (town, municipal, castle and parish). High-quality beer was brewed, superior to competitors’. Numerous public houses were also permitted to serve beer from Pardubice only. JOINT STOCK BREWERY A venture by local entrepreneurs, a joint stock company was set up under the name of Akciový pivovar. In January 1871, a committee decided to build a new brewery powered by steam engines. Out of 17 candidates, František Chodounský was selected for the head brewer’s office. Construction drew to a close on 1 April 1872, having cost a total of 272,305 Austro-Hungarian guldens. PARDUBICKÝ PORTER The Pardubice brewery attained an annual production of 15,000 hl, and it was one of the first modern breweries in Eastern Bohemia. On 1 October 1889, Alois Šimonek became the head brewer, and created Porter – a 19-degree beer. Introduced in March 1890, it remains popular today. In 1928, production at the Pardubice Brewery exceeded 100,000 hectolitres of beer for the first time in its history. TURBULENT 20th CENTURY As a result of WWII, sales of beer declined in general, and a low-degree type was produced. In 1945, the brewery fell under state control and it was nationalized in 1949. It did not become a joint stock company again until 1 January 1993. Prior to this, the Pardubice Brewery annually turned out 310,000 hl of beer, 50,000 hl of soft drinks and 2,000 tonnes of malt for internal use. keyboard_arrow_left 03_porter PARDUBICKÝ PORTER A special, dark, nineteen-degree variety, Porter is a unique product in the history of brewing in Pardubice. Launched in 1890, it remains a leading product in the market, and is virtually unmatched for its strength and superior quality.

The beer is brewed to a Czech recipe. Its unique sweet taste is achieved through an unchanged, traditional composition of 4 malts – Czech, Munich (Bavaria), caramel and coloured. The beer is brewed exclusively with hops from the Žatec area in the Czech Republic. Porter is truly a product of Czech origin and it ranks among the strongest of black beers.
