Traditional Czech beer brand will be brewed more effectively.

Velké Popovice brewery from the Plzeňský Prazdroj group put into operation 14 cylindroconic tanks after the bottling line for returnable bottles. They will now be used for the maturation and fermentation of lagers and draught beers. They will replace the original technology in the brewery cellar. The total value of the investment exceeded CZK 620m. The brewery expects the same quality of maturation and fermentation from the tanks, as well as higher efficiency of beer production and simplification of work for employees. Václav Šimek, manager of Velké Popovice brewery, said that each of the tanks weighs 20 tonnes, is 18 metres long and has a volume of 3,300 hl, which means 660,000 beers.
