U Tří růží
The brewery and restaurant U Tří růží in Prague is situated in the historical center on Husova street close to the famous Charles Bridge and Old Town Square. Right after your entering the feeling of the unique atmosphere of an Old-Prague brewery will overcome you. The feeling is intensified by wall-paintings by artists Jiří Bernard and Pavel Jakl who drew and painted pictures about the history of brewing in the Czech lands as the rich history of the house (the brewery U Tří růží).

The combination of our best method standards, highest quality ingredients and the traditional craftsmanship of brewing in Czech lands allowed the brewery U Tří růží to gain the status of a monastic brewery of the Dominican Order which is located not far from the building.

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.
