The most successful Czech brewery for the past 30 years is Pivovar Zubr, which won a special award also at this annual Pivex Golden Cup.
Zubr Gold has taken top honors in two categories. The Přerov brew was named best-bottled beer and best light draft beer. This year 45 brands from 13 industrial breweries took part in the two-round competition.
The Pivovar Přerov was founded in 1872. It is currently part of the PMS Přerov group, which includes Zubr, Litovel, Holba breweries and a malt house.
The aroma of the Zubr Gold is malty, with a little sweet taste and honey and diacetyl in the aftertaste. For the production of beer Zubr is used:
- the purest water;
- selected malt, which is brought from Pilsen;
- local “Moravian” hops, which gained the strength of fertile soil.
Winners of the 2022 competition in the different categories:
Main winned – Zubr Gold
Bright lager – Zubr Grand
Light draft (výčepní pivo) – Zubr Gold
Dark beer (Tmavá piva) – Bernard černý ležák
Nonalcoholic beer (Nealkoholická piva) – Birell
