KOZEL BREWERY TOUR VELKE POPOVICE
Enjoy a visit to the little village of Velké Popovice and the home of the Kozel (billy goat) beer, this is situated just a short 40 minute drive south of Prague. Beer has been brewed in Velké Popovice since the 14th century, but in the 19th century the baron František Ringhoffer brought it really to life when he restored the old buildings and built a new brewery.
The name (Kozel) translated means billy goat, the connection goes back to 1874 when a French painter who was so impressed with the creamy delicious taste of the beer and the warm hospitality in the village that he presented as a gift a painting of a Kozel (billy goat), and so that became the symbol of the brewery and the beer.
