The Svijany Brewery was founded in 1564- it is one of the oldest breweries in the country. It was originally owned by the Cistercian monastery in Mnichovo Hradiště . It was later gained by the Vartenberks. When Jaroslav of Vartenberk died in 1602, Svijany fell into the hands of Ondřeji Šlik. After his execution in 1621, it became the property of the Wallenstein family, who owned it until 1814. Later on, Svijany together with Sychrov were owned by the Rohan family. In 1912, the brewery was bought by the Kratochvíl family who took care of it until 1939, when they were forced to sell it, so the brewery was regained by the Rohan family. After 1945, Svijany Brewery was confiscated and consequently nationalized. After 1990, it became a part of the company Vratislavice nad Nisou Breweries. From 1997, it was joined with the stock-company Prague Breweries. Due to bad financial management, the quality of the brewery in Svijany declined. It was in 1998 that the new company, Svijany Brewery s.r.o. (“Ltd.”) , was founded. It was transformed into a stock-company in 2005. That was the beginning of a successful era for the brewery that became the most popular regional brand in the Liberec Region.
