Mestiansky pivovar (brewery) or Burgeois brewery can be found in Bratislava at two addresses. The newly opened hotel is located on Drevená Street and follows the long tradition of the famous brewery “Die Bürgerliche Brauerei”, also known as “Meštiak” (Bourgeois). The second one stands on Dunajská Street.
But in order for the Mestiansky pivovar to be successful and popular among the “regulars”, it was important to brew exceptional beer. “The process of brewing our beer begins with the selection of the highest quality ingredients. Cooking is carried out using the traditional two-mash technology using traditional ingredients: malt, water, hops and yeast, nothing else is added. It is cooked exclusively from the best hops of the Saaz region, the water used for production is filtered and treated. Our beer is a Pilsner type beer, produced by a standard bottom fermentation process, ” says maltster Peter Pramuk.
In addition, proper brewing of beer should also be at the heart of the owners. Mestiansky pivovar can boast such a trio. They did not jump into the beer industry unprepared.

how does the Mestiansky pivovar actually achieve that great taste and quality? In the production of 12-stage beer, the main fermentation takes 8 to 10 days, the fermentation takes 4 weeks. Beer is not filtered or pasteurized, ie it contains live yeast. The beer is forced through sterile nitrogen, that is to say, oxidation is prevented. Since unfiltered beer does not come into contact with oxygen, there is no weathering, which has a positive effect on its quality. As a result, the pleasant hop aroma of the beer is released and its fullness or greater flavor is enhanced.
