13-1-2014: This time, the offer of our beer bar was rather atypical. The beer list only included interesting beers from the countries of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, with the old monarchy being the central theme of the evening held for the pharmaceutical company Abbvie, at Moravská Chalupa in Brno. Besides a beer tasting, attendants could consult the available beer cards with all the information about the beers, as well as a map of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire showing all the breweries represented at this beer event. And even though most of the attendants were from the more beautiful part of humanity, the attractiveness of our beer bar wasn’t affected, quite the opposite in fact. Photos from the event can be seen here:
20-12-2013: Finally a tasting as it should be! In the morning, when the tasting buds aren’t tired. It was organised for the employees of Šnajdr stavby Mělník s.r.o. right before Christmas. The tasting took place at the Hotel Ludmila, in Mělnik, and started at 10, making a pleasant start of the day for all attendants, who tasted special Czech beers focusing on different styles.
12-12-2013, Ùstí nad Labem: We already played our beer roulette at many places, but this was the first time at a zoo! It was during the Christmas meeting with journalist organised by Heineken CZ at the restaurant Savana, where they presented the plans for the Velké Březno brewery. A visit to the zoo with the marketing director Tereza Limburská was also part of the event, where Heineken CZ contributed to the construction of a new enclosure for cheetahs as part of their project “O stupeň lepší Ústí”. Our beer roulette was part of the evening program. This time it focused on the company’s portfolio of beers from different parts of Europe. Not only journalists were among the palyers, but also people like the current Brew Master at the Velké Březno brewery, Michal Rouč or the emeritus Brew Mistress Jana Rostová. We think we contributed to an interesting evening for all attendants. You can see a few photos of the event here.
21-11-2013: The brewery Jelínkova vila in Velkém Meziříčí was the scene of a very unusual duel. As a part of the evening program for the two day meeting Czech Brewers and Maltsters Association we played beer roulette with true beer professionals and we were already worried about our beer bank. Our bank didn’t go broke, though the players at both tables were excellent – all of them experts in the field (brewers, owners, directors of breweries, people from ICT, etc.). Among the players was, for example, the chairman of the Association, František Šámal. But only the six best could go to the final round. And even though the important thing here wasn’t to win, but to participate (and, whe should add, have fun), it would be unfair if we failed to mention the winner of this prestigious tournament, Jaromír Fiala, consultant at CBMA from the Institute of Chemical Technology. You can see photos of the event here.
26 June, 2013: The attractive interiors of Hegertovy Cihelny, together with the even more attractive view to Charles Bridge, welcome business partners of Nomura Group (one of the key players in the world financial markets). During the event, the attendants had the chance to taste interesting Czech beers from micro and regional breweries at our beer bar. It was a pleasant moment on an otherwise torrid day.
