Zatec

Czech Republic

Zatec is an area notable for its legendary hops. Built in 1801, the Zatec Brewery occupies the site of the old Zatec Castle and historically, the brewery has been a feature for the town of Zatec. After a period of decline during the Communist years, Rolf Munding purchased the brewery in 2001 to rejuvenate the local brewery and town. Tomas Lejsek, a Czech brew master, masterminded changes by bringing together new technology, old brewing processes and pure ingredients to make Zatec to what it is today.

Pours to a buff head that lasts and laces. Transparent ruby black color. Slight roast and decocted malt aroma with a honey-like floral hop note.
