In the past, the beer was brewed in two breweries: The Manor brewery came into existence as early as in 1547 (Rosenberg – later Schwarzenberg brewery) followed by the Commons brewery (renewal of the rights by Peter Vok in 1598). Brewing beer flourished in the 19th century. The last brewery (Schwarzenberg – after nationalization called South-Bohemian brewery) was closed in 1967.
The annual production of the present brewery is 300 hls a year. The capacity of the cookers amounts to 2 hls. We brew the classic Czech lager beer from Czech raw materials using the traditional technology of bottom fermentation. The basic assortment is enriched with some special sorts of beer.
The team of the Šumava brew-house consists of experts who have got top awards from numerous competitions. We hope you will appreciate ŠP Vimperk beer as well.
The brewery restaurant adjusts the cold and warm kitchen to brewing and prepares dishes going together with beer. In our menu card you can find seasonal dishes and Šumava specialities, too.
