Radegast succeeded in prestigious competition in Germany

25.9.2013 Radegast

European Beer Star is a tasting competition where the judges evaluate the richness of taste and craftsmanship of individual beers. „This competition is one of the most prestigious competitions in Europe, and it pleases me even more than usual that the notable bitterness and full taste of Radegast reaped success with the judges. The outstanding placement in the competition is yet further proof of the excellence that our beer offers to our consumers,“ said Ivo Kaňák, manager of Radegast brewery.

Radegast is traditionally successful in Czech as well as in international competitions. Last year, it was awarded medals in the Czech Beer and Golden Cup Pivex competitions. The beer also earned medals in competitions in Australia and Belgium.
