Prague, December 21, 2015 – The questionnaire survey carried out by PORT spol. s r.o. in June and July 2015 focused on answers to questions what motivates the public to participate in increasingly more popular beer and brewery events.

Over a half of the respondents mentioned that the reason for their participation was a possibility to meet family and friends. The third most attractive feature of beer events is an opportunity to see the production facilities of breweries.

Miroslav Jiránek in the La Femme Gallery for the third time

Prague, 19th December 2014 - Miroslav Jiránek (*1951) introduces a collection of his newest pieces together with selected older ones in the La Femme Gallery, at an exhibition named Mostly on the Axis. The new paintings are inspired by the thematic trips he took with this gallery. There is the Lake Constance, the Mediterranean, or Brittany. Unlike the previous exhibitions, it also offers non-traditional, different themes. It is held between the 19th December and 15th January 2015.

“The fact that Mr. Jiránek has an exhibition of his newest work of art in our gallery is no coincidence. He is one of our essential, or even one of the closest authors (also regarding the distance of his place of residence from the gallery); he attends joint exhibitions, and this is his third individual exhibition in our gallery,” says Miroslav Lipina, the owner of the La Femme Gallery in Prague. “He is a painter with an intimate relationship to the natural scenery, in whom you must admire the unique ability to combine the love towards nature with the technical preciseness and the sense of detail, which stems from his work with little paint brushes that make the detailed paintings most possible,” Miroslav Lipina added.

The Unique Sensory Research Center in Prague Opens

Prague 15 October 2013 – The Sensory Research Center with unique parameters in the Czech Republic was officially opened in the Research Institute of Brewing and Malting in Prague. It is mostly designated for research, development and innovations in sensory quality of food. Its analytical laboratory section focuses mainly on beverages, in particular beer, while its sensory section tests beer and beverages and its equipment allows to study and test a wide selection of food, food ingredients and regularly used products.

One of the most important tasks of the Sensory Research Center is to examine in depth and to test the typical properties of Czech Beer. The protected geographical mark, which Czech Beer received within the EU in 2008, helps to support its uniqueness and to protect it against those who would like to profit from Czech Beer’s phenomenon.
