Awards of Czech and Moravian Brewery Academy

On the 6th of April we recieved two awards of Czech and Moravian Brewery Academy in the main hall of Valdštejn palace in the residence of the Czech Senate in these categories:

Brewery restaurant
Brewery with production in the range from 10,000 hl to 20,000 hl

We very much appreciate these awards and are thankful to the academy.

Next, we attached a gratulation for a lifelong contribution to czech breweries to Mr. Jiří Plevka from Chodov Planá Brewery, Prof. Pavel Dostálek from VŠCHT and Michal Černý from Pivo Praha.

John Findiater discusses the efforts made by the Guinness Brewery in Dublin to implement an organisational strategy that entailed upgrading the skills of all employees. The case underwrites the importance of developing a culture in which change is facilitated through enhancing peoples’ ability to learn. Findiater describes how Guinness, starting off from a rather traditional and paternalistic approach to employment, giving the brewery its reputation as a ‘good employer’, adopted new organisational strategies. The case of Guinness demonstrates that enterprises have to develop internal and external alliances that support the implementation of learning for change. Such alliances can be formal through contractual relationships with writing service and also informal through students participating in networks and international European programmes.
Stimulating a thirst for learning – the case of the brewery enjoyed the generous facilities of the Guinness family, which could be
described as paternalism at its most positive. Then, in the last thirty years the
students from this brewery made a transition by investing in new technology to become a world
leader in state-of-the-art brewing. Imagine what this was like for those
craftsmen and operators who had traditional skills.

”Czech and Moravian Brewery Academy showed clear respect towards the unique tradition of Czech beer by it’s voting. Among the winners of categories with various production rates, we are almost without exception able to find only names or places, to which professional pride always was and is the difficult style of Czech lager.”

God bless!
