I went to the shop to buy some beer and my mate said to me 'try budweiser budvar' so i did and it was very nice then i looked it up on the interweb and this is what i found. The direct predecessor of the Budweiser Budvar brewery as a national enterprise was the Czech Share Brewery. It was founded in 1895 and its activity directly related to the historical tradition of brewing of beer in eské Budjovice which dates back to the 13th century when the town was founded chartered for brewing rights. Since the period of its foundation the brewery has undergone permanent modernisation. In 1922 the first artesian well was bored and after some further time an additional two artesian wells were also bored. The brewery achieved the source of high quality water which helps create the excellent flavour properties of the original Budweser lager up to the present day. Since the 1920s the brewery have won market share in every continent, hence the brewery registered trademarks eský budjovický granát (Czech Budjovice Garnet), Budweiser bier, Budbräu and others. In 1930 the trademark Budvar was registered which became in a short time the synonym for high quality. In accordance with this registered trademark the brewery changed its name in 1936 to Budvar eský akciový pivovar eské Budjovice.
