Brewery Avar in Hlučín

In the ancient town Hlučín, near the city Ostrava, beer was brewed as early as the 16th century. The brewery was founded in 1526. In 1904, after nearly four hundred years, brewing stopped in Hlučín. On the ruins of the original brewery the current owners built the new one, and in 1993 they revived the tradition of local brewing. Now there is production of the light lager Avar and dark lager Dérer.

Brewery Slezan in Leskovec

It specializes in barley, bottom-fermented beer of the pilsner type. The basic products are light (unfiltered and unpasteurized) yeast lagers with degrees of 11°, 12°, 13° under a unified name Slezan. We also brew special beers such as a honey, a cherry and a plum beer and beers with increased strength.
