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. A picture gallery of the event can be found here:
3 June, 2013: June’s floods fortunately didn’t affect the Maximus Hotel by the Brno dam, and nothing prevented an evening with a tasting of foreign beers that took place during an event organised by HP. Attendants could get a lot of interesting information about beer in general, and, especially, taste some. Samples came mainly from Belgium, Germany, Holland, Scotland and the USA, and convinced the participants of their quality, not only thanks to their strength, but also thanks to their flavours and aromas, unusual in some cases for Czech consumers.
