Fruit brandy production started in Czech kingdom in 14th century in a town called Kutna Hora. First brandy was made mainly from wine of bad quality, but the final product was surprisingly good. Fruit brandy was getting more and more popular. In 19th century it was registered up to 243 distilleries. Each family could make up to 50 liters of brandy in registered distillery without paying any taxes until 1918. This has changed during communism. Government didn't support this tradition at all. After Velvet revolution in 1989 fruit brandy production in small distilleries has been growing up rapidly even though the maximum amount of produced brandy per family is 60 liters, which is taxed with only 50% discount.
Our "distillery" started beer production 1st October 2010, therefor it changed the name to "Kutilek's distillery and brewery". We mainly brew non-filtered lager beer using high quality Czech resources. Our beer brewing device has been specially modified for this kind of beer, which makes it a unique device in Czech Republic. Produced beer is not pasteurized or stabilized; no chemicals are used during the whole brewing process.
Our biggest success is the golden beer medal award we got for semi-dark pilsner lager.
