Zubr Gold Named Best Czech Bottled Beer

The most successful Czech brewery for the past 30 years is Pivovar Zubr, which won a special award also at this annual Pivex Golden Cup.

Zubr Gold has taken top honors in two categories. The Přerov brew was named best-bottled beer and best light draft beer. This year 45 brands from 13 industrial breweries took part in the two-round competition.

The Pivovar Přerov was founded in 1872. It is currently part of the PMS Přerov group, which includes Zubr, Litovel, Holba breweries and a malt house.

The aroma of the Zubr Gold is malty, with a little sweet taste and honey and diacetyl in the aftertaste. For the production of beer Zubr is used:

  • the purest water;
  • selected malt, which is brought from Pilsen;
  • local “Moravian” hops, which gained the strength of fertile soil.


Winners of the 2022 competition in the different categories:

Main winned  – Zubr Gold
