Topvar Breweries (Slovak: Pivovary Topvar, a. s.) is a beer brewing company in Slovakia. The company was created by the fusion of the Saris and Topvar breweries on 1 January 2007, after both were purchased by global brewing giant SABMiller in 2006.

The original Topvar Brewery was founded in 1957 and the first Topvar beer wes brewed in Topoľčany in 1964. Since 2010 beer brewing has been relocated to Veľký Šariš.

Topvar had been owned by South African Breweries, which became SABMiller, since 2006. As part of the agreements made with regulators before Anheuser-Busch InBev was allowed to acquire SABMiller in October 2016, Topvar was sold to Asahi Breweries of Japan on December 13, 2016; the deal is expected to close during the first half of 2017.[1][2][3][4]
