The Vratislavice brewery has been brewing high-quality beer in the north Bohemian city of Liberec - Vratislavice since 1872. In 1989, when communism collapsed, Vratislavice became a shareholders company and Bass, the leading British brewing group, bought up all the shares. On the 25th May 1998 Bass closed the Liberec plant after Bass withdrew the beer and replaced it with Staropramen.
The brewery reopened on the 25th May 2000 (The date was deliberately chosen) and renamed, Konrad after the brewery's first brewmaster in the 19th century.
