Pivovar Protivín
The exact year of foundation of Protivín brewery is not documented in writing, however it is certain that in the first half of the 16th century beer was brewed there. The first written mentions date back even to 1540. In 1711, the brewery became the property of the noble Schwarzenberg family, where it remained for more than two hundred years. The most famous beer the brewery produces is Platan (sycamore). The name was first used in 1973 for 11% pale lager. The inspiration for the name was a beautiful sycamore tree line avenue, lining the path to the brewery. Protivín brewery produces 11 kinds of beer. High-quality water from artesian wells is used for manufacture of beer. The water quality conforms to nursery water even without modification.

All of these 123 owners of brewing rights clearly embodied its brewing rights in 1859 into a new brewery, today's Jihlava brewery. New Jihlava brewery was opened on April 4, 1861. In the summer of 2008, Jihlava brewery, under the direction of a new owner returned to the production of beer according to original recipes and is producing several kinds of beers, including interesting specials.

Although at the time it was one of the most important religious objects in Europe, only a gate with a beautiful portal survived to this day, the gate stands in the courtyard of the current brewery. Klášter Brewery produces 4 types of unpasteurised beer. Their outstanding quality is determined by, among other things unmistakable natural conditions – high quality water and especially by old cellars dug deep into the rock beneath the brewery where beer is fermented and matures at optimal temperatures.
