The Bernard Range:
On October 26, 1991 Stanislav Bernard, Josef Vávra and Rudolf Šmejkal won an auction for the small privatization of the bankrupt brewery in Humpolec, established in the 16th century. It did not take long for the Family brewery in Humpolec and BERNARD beer to become a well-known premium brand throughout the entire Czech Republic.
To distinguish their beers in the Czech market, the trip or brewers chose to make honest traditional unpasteurized beer, brewed with craftsmen skill from the best ingredients. Thanks to its traditional procedures, BERNARD beer stands out for its harmony of fullness and bitterness.

The Tapped Brew Co. Range Our very own brewery!
The Tapped brewery is a 4BBL (Brewers Barrel) kit. 1BBl is equivalent to 4 x 9 gallon casks so it has a maximum capacity of 16 x 9 gallon casks per brew. The Hot Liquor Tank, Mash Tun, Underback and Copper are all insulated and copper clad. There are two 2000 litre closed conical fermenters behind the brewery, these allow us to brew the same beer on two consecutive days and ferment them in the same vessel. The fermenting room to the side of the brewery houses a further four 1000 litre fermenters for single brews. The fermenters are closed and have cooling jackets so both the temperature and carbonation of the beer can be controlled at every stage.
