Brewing in Břeclav county has a longlife tradition. The result from all the materials and documents I had is the fact that in 1297 Václav II. granted Podivín a town law and the existing forged document allows Podivín /Kostel/ to brew which is dated from the year 1360. The oldest reference to brewery in Břeclav county comes from 1414 and is dedicated to a brewery in Břeclav /Lundenburg/ (see Summary of Břeclav brewery) but the year of an establishment Břeclav brewery which is stated on the brewery labels comes from the year 1522.

According to the collector´s websites pivety.com, the first owner of the Břeclav brewery was Jan Skála from Hradiště. Information about his followers gives website VLASTNÍCI A MAJITELÉ PIVOVARU BŘECLAV (THE PROPRIETORS THE OWNERS OF BŘECLAV BREWERY). The first brewery was built from bricks around 1560 just in the place of a current malt house. You can find more information in SUMMARY ABOUT THE BREWERY HISTORY. From the Břeclav magazine I have an article with the title BRIEF SUMMARY OF BŘECLAV BREWERY. Beer doesn´t mean only breweries but also malt houses. There used to be relatively many malt houses (spite of the fact we are rather wine region) but nowadays there is none of them. The closest one is a malt house of BERNARD brewery a.s. in Rajhrad and the other one is a malt house of a the company DRINKS UNION a.s. in the place of a late brewery Jarošov in Uherské Hradiště.
