Excursion of the Eggenberg brewery in Ceský Krumlov
The tradition of brewing beer in Ceský Krumlov goes back to the very beginnings of the town. The first written documentation is a deed from the reeve Michal from 1336. The increasing rate of beer consumption seemed to be reason enough to utilize the former estates of Anna of Roggendorf, mother of Wilhelm and Peter Wok von Rosenberg (Wilhelm von Rosenberg, Petr Wok von Rosenberg), for a new brewery. The estates, which since 1594 had been used for the Rožmberk armoury, were reconstructed from 1625-30 by townsman Václav Vlach into the new buildings of today's brewery. The new owner of Krumlov's castle and dominion, Johann Ulriich von Eggenberg, heralded the brewery into operation in 1630. The Czech Eggenberg property was inherited by the Schwarzenberg family in 1719, which meant a very significant age for the history of the brewery in that it was expanded to the form which we know today.
