Brewing beer has to start with the malt. Malt is made in the malt house by germinating grain. After this procedure the grain is dried, scraped and the whole mixture is put into the mash tun/kettle.
Vojanův dvůr brewery and restaurant is located in Malá Strana (the Lesser Town) in an historic building that was originally a bishopric court dating back to the 13th century. The grand opening of the brewery was held in July 2018, making Vojanův dvůr the first micro-brewery in Malá Strana. The beer here is brewed by Robert Maňák, an experienced brew master from our sister brewery U tří růží. Under his guidance you can look forward to special beers you won’t find elsewhere.
Head chef Martin Procházka prepares delicacies of traditional Czech and Moravian cuisine with a modern flair. The restaurant has plenty of room inside and out with its spacious summer garden and even boasts a covered podium, making it the ideal space for weddings, banquets, team building and private parties.
The first mention of the building dates from 1249, when it was the residence of the Bishop of Prague. In the early 19th century it passed into the hands of the noble Windisch-Grätz family and was also used as an imperial stables. One of the horses kept there, ARDO II, was chosen by sculptor Jan Myslbek as a model for the equestrian statue of Saint Wenceslas at the top of Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square).

The kettle is the metaphorical heart of the brewery. In the first faze the malt is mixed with water at the temperature of 35 degrees Celsius and slowly heated.
A part of this solution (called mashout) is pumped over into the bottom part of the mash tun (an insulated brewing vessel with a false bottom) where the heating starts at a constant temperature of 63 to 73 degrees Celsius so the enzymes are deactivated.
Next the whole brew is pumped over into a "lauter tun" where the grains are separated from the sweet wort (called lautering). Then the sweet wort is pumped into another vessel where it is boiled for about an hour at the temperature of 100 degrees Celsius. After adding hops we get hop wort...
Which then travels into a heat exchanger, where it's cooled to a temprature when yeast can be added safly, (10 degrees) after that the hop wort is pumped into fermentation tanks.
Here the main fermenting process comes to order. Brewing yeast is added into opened tanks and it lets the beer ferment for 8-12 days at 7-10 degrees. Draft beers lie in the fermentation tanks for about 10 days, lager 12 days. The main part of alcohol is created during this process.
After that the beer goes into the cellar where in different fermentation tanks it ferments for another 40 days at 1 to 3 degrees.
