Nová Sladovna, or New Malthouse, Craft Brewery. Located in the building of the former burgher brewery dating from 1825. This was closed in 2005 and in 2010-2012 rebuilt into a commercial and social center. The architects managed to maintain, among other things, the brewery chimney, which forms a remarkable architectural landmark of the town center.
The restaurant Ka-Varna was opened in 2012 on the site of the original boiler. The original spirit of the historic boiler lives on in the original copper vat which dominates the entire area. A microbrewery was supposed to be placed here, but the decision was made to put it in the malthouse just 50 meters away. A year later, in 2013, the Nová Sladovna Microbrewery was completed. The brewery is located one storey below, in the basement, were the beer is aged in ideal conditions.
There are always at least three beers available. The 11° Opavský korbel lager is continuously brewed. The other two beers are rotated every month. Usually these are a 12° top-fermented ale and a stronger IPA.
There are also other beers on offer, such as smoked, wheat, and porter, brewed from fresh green hops, then ginger, India black ale, Vienna lager, and others. When brewing the top-fermented beers, American and Australian hops are mostly used, giving guests the opportunity to smell and taste truly exceptional beer.
