The Gambrinus Brewery and its History

The Gambrinus Brewery offers a unique opportunity for a social evening in the places where the history of Gambrinus beer actually began.

The story of the Gambrinus brewery dates from 1869. It was founded under the name První plzeňský akciový pivovar [First Pilsner Joint-stock Brewery) in Pilsen by 20 prominent Pilsen entrepreneurs, led by Emil Škoda.

The original Gambrinus catchment brewing facility, which was established in 1869, was located on these premises. Since then it has been expanded gradually to accommodate the increased interest in beer from this brewery.

In 1919, after World War One, the brewery was registered under the new trademark Plzeňský Gambrinus for its beer.

In the final days of World War Two, the Gambrinus brewery was nearly destroyed by an allied air raid (the target of the raid was a freight yard near the brewery). After the war, it was debated whether it would even be worth resuming production at the Gambrinus brewery. Fortunately, the brewery’s director at the time, František Hlaváček, convinced everyone that it made sense to liquidate the damage as quickly as possible. By the end of the year, operations had been resumed at the Gambrinus brewery. And already in 1946, the brewery produced 200,000 hectolitres of quality beer.
