Radegast offers 320 beers for a historical item (Translation)

4 June 2010

Nošovice, June 3, 2010 - Historical photographs, artifacts and any tools or equipment used for beer making or anything else from the past may enrich an exhibition held for the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Radegast brewery.  Therefore employees of the brewery ask owners of documents or artifacts to lend them or give them to the brewery's collection. The owner of the most interesting artifact will get one year's worth of beer for free.
"We know that a lot of Radegast fans have at home, rich collections of artifacts or photographs, which depict the founding of our brewery and which remind us of other milestones of its development.  We would like to put together a concise collection and show it in the form of an exhibition.  This important 40th anniversary of the founding of our brewery simply demands it.  We are grateful for anything, even for valuable information or contacts for other collectors," said Ivo Kaňák from the Radegast brewery. 

The owner of the most attractive artifact will receive 320 Radegast beers, which corresponds on average to a year's worth of beer for one person in the Czech Republic.  Every person whose artifacts or photos are shown at the exhibition starting on September 11, 2010 in Nošovice will receive a beer.

All who want to help the brewery can come in person to the reception area at the Radegast brewery in Nošovice or send an email to

This challenge continues until June 15, 2010.
