Beer brewing in Bohemia dates back to the 1200s, from the city of Pilsen in the area of Bohemia in Czech Republic. In 1842 the legendary Bavarian brewer Josef Groll created the first batches of modern pilsner lager in Bohemia using traditional techniques with new paler malts. It is from these deep roots that Bohemian Brewery Lagers owe their heritage to. In 2001 Joe Petras and his family opened the Brewery with their knowledge and skill of old-world European Lager brewing they brought with them from Czechoslovakia, and ever since we have continued perfecting the art. Thanks for spending your time with us to experience how these rich traditions live on here at Bohemian Brewery every day. Na zdravi!
