Sv. Václav


For St. Wenceslas’ day, the patron of all brewers and Czech beer, we have brewed a special St. Wenceslas’ Desitka. It is our Desitka with added fresh Saaz Special hops. We used quite a lot of it, approximately 15 kg, both in boil and dry hopping. Harvest of fresh hops occurs only once a year at the end of August and beginning of September. That’s why this beer is unique not only because of its fresh hop aroma and taste, but also of its rare availability.

The Matuška Brewery was founded on April 13th, 2009, which was an Easter Monday. The very first batch was brewed on this day and the beer was our special dark lager beer. The brewery falls in the mini-brewery category and it was founded by brewmaster Martin Matuška, who has been working in the beer industry since 1981.
