The Ostravar Brewery has the richest history and tradition in the Moravian-Silesian Region. It was founded during the Austro-Hungarian Empire and has operated at the same address ever since.
The brewery began to regularly brew beer in Ostrava in the summer of 1898. Since 1997, the Ostravar Brewery has been part of the Pivovary Staropramen company, the second largest beer producer in the Czech Republic. Pivovary Staropramen is part of the Molson Coors brewing concern.
It is worth mentioning that Ostravar is one of the last major breweries in the Czech Republic to use traditional technology in the preparation of its beer, namely the boiler-fermenting room-cellar process. This means that fermenting beer in Ostravar has been done the same traditional way for 120 years – in the fermenting room.
In 2016, the Ostravar Brewery became a general partner of the biggest sports hall in Moravia, bearing the name Ostravar Arena.
