Good beer has been brewed in Bohemia since time immemorial. Therefore, when founding the city Ceske Budejovice in Bohemia (Czech Republic) in 1265, the Czech king Premysl Otakar II did not fail to also grant to its burghers the brewing rights, i.e., the right for malting, brewing, storing and selling beer at their homes. In the following centuries, the local beer became so famous because of its quality that it gained loyal customers in imperial and royal courts. In the course of the centuries, small home breweries were disappearing and the beer was brewed in even larger facilities. on 15 April 1895, Cesky akciovy pivovar was founded, whose current successor, B.B.N.P. brewery, carries on the local brewing tradition.
