Royal Brewery of Krušovice
The Royal Brewery of Krušovice (cs: Královský pivovar Krušovice, shortform Krušovice) is a Czech brewery, established in 1581 by Jiří Birka in the village of Krušovice. Jiří Birka sold the brewery to Emperor Rudolf II in 1583, allowing them to use the Imperial Crown of Austria as part of the company's logo. Arnošt Josef Valdštejn bought the brewery in 1685. After 1945, the Krušovice Brewery was the state-owned company. The brewery was fully privatised in 1993 and were launched beer exports to the USA and the UK. The company was acquired by Heineken in July 2007.
