Mayor opens Czech brewery extension

The Mayor of Haringey was among guests gathered at the official opening of London’s only Czech brewery Bohem on October 12 that has just been massively expanded.

The expansion has increased brewing capacity seven-fold and the Mayor celebrated its ability to now serve more of its Czech-style beers to a wider audience at a packed event held at the brewery’s Tap Room in Myddleton Road.

Guests included locals, councillors and beer writers who enjoyed copious pints of beer including Bohem’s best-selling pilsners – Victoria and Jan Amos – that are produced by the brewery’s co-founders Zdenek Kudr and Petr Skocek.

Bohem is located on nearby Whittington Road and is fully kitted-out with the latest equipment from the Czech Republic. It is gaining a following with its beers now available in other pubs in the local area and discussions are underway with various bars and restaurants in the West End.

Zdenek said: “The extended brewery now enables more people to enjoy our beers and we are proud to be playing our part in the rejuvenation of Myddleton Road. It was a great honour to have the Mayor do the honours and celebrate our official opening in proper style with a few pints of authentic Bohemian beers.”
