Would you like to know who makes good beer and wine around Zlín and Luhačovice? There’s no shortage of local brewers and winemakers around here, and here’s a list of our favorites.

People have been making beer around the Malenovice Castle for centuries, as it was quite common for castles to set up their own breweries back in the day. Today, the area is the birthplace of Zlínský Švec. Though it can be found in many pubs in the region, in our opinion, it tastes the best right at the source.
This restaurant/hotel/brewery, which has been making beer for seven years now, is our secret tip that very few people know about. Give it a try!
Slavičín and Hrádek na Vlárské Dráze, originally two separate villages that are now part of Slavičín, both used to have their own breweries. Sadly, neither of these has made it to this day, as production in the Slavičín brewery was discontinued in 1908, with the building being torn down soon after to make room for new development, while Hrádek’s brewery met its demise in 1874 and was later demolished only to be replaced by an elementary school. Nowadays, the new local brewery tries to continue the tradition of beer production in Slavičín, and it’s up to you to find out whether they’re doing a good job.
