About the Svijany brewery

The first mention of Svijany yard, over the years, extended by a brewery, dates back to 1346, when it belonged to Cistercian monks from the monastery Hradiště. Around 1420 it was bought by Czech nobleman and an important court-clerk Jindřich of Vartenberk. He managed to keep it until his death, however, after it it was put in pawn by the Emperor Zikmund to Hynek of Valdštejn, and together with the castle Rohozec, half of Turnov and manor na Skalách it belonged to Valdštejn reign of Malá Skála.

Restoration of castle Svijany

In 2013, SVIJANY BREWERY acquired a decaying castle in Svijany, which is located across the brewery in the municipality Svijany and decided to restore it to its former dignified appearance. The brewery wished to make this cultural monument public so that it could serve as a local centre for cultural events as it used to do in the past.
