Kout na Šumavě Brewery
Kout has been continuously brewing some of the best lagers in the Czech Republic, preferring its stable quality over the variety of portfolio. It's Koutská 12 is by many considered the best Czech Pilsener in the world.
Kout Brewery has been building up on its about 300 years old tradition, as the first establishment was opened after the 30 Year's War. Maybe that and its unique water source are the reasons why Kout's beer has been so loved by beer drinkers around the world. The most precious secret likely comes from the recipe book (1938) found inside one of the walls during reconstructions.
"Water used in beer must be soft. The less minerals in it, the better. During the boiling of malt, the soft water can take in almost all of it. Brewing is simply an alchemy." Bohuslav Hlavsa, Head Brewer

The brewery's flagship beer is as complex, flavourful and delicious as can be expected from what's quite likely the world's best Bohemian Pilsner.
A beer that's brilliantly refreshing, yet has plenty of noble hop character and rich, round maltiness in precise balance. Caution: Remarkably drinkable!
One of the TOP 50 dopplebock in the world. Coffee, slight caramel and chocolate. After the rounded aroma and a smooth cream mouthfeel, the aftertaste echoes with chocolate and dried fruits.
Brewed with roasted malt to obtain its almost black color and delightful notes of coffee and plums, the Dark Special is flavorful yet easy to drink, a thoroughly elegant beer.
