The Mayor of Haringey was among guests gathered recently at the official opening of London’s only Czech-style brewery Bohem 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, brewers 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’s brewery is located on nearby Whittington Road and is fully kitted-out with the latest equipment that has been brought in from the Czech Republic. It is gaining a following with its beers now available in other pubs in the local area – including Fuller’s-owned Great Northern Railway Tavern – and it is in discussions with various bars and restaurants in central London.

Kudr 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 to help celebrate our official opening in proper style with a few pints of authentic Bohemian beers.”
