Budvar raised production to its new record volume.

Czech brewery Budějovický Budvar was able to raise the production of beer by 51,000 hectolitres to 1.730 million hectolitres even despite complications related to the coronavirus crisis in 2020. It was the highest production of beer in the history of the company. According to company head Petr Dvořák, the volume of sales on the domestic market increased by 2% and the sales on export markets grew by nearly 3.5%. The brewery lost tens of millions of CZK due to the coronavirus measures, primarily due to closed pubs and restaurants, and the shutdown of its visitors centre.
