We are independent craft brewery Nachmelená Opice Krnov, we brew quality and upright beer. We respect traditional procedures and at the same time we are not afraid of new trends and beer styles.All our Opice beers are lively, unfiltered and unpasteurized. Our Opice beers are available in 30 and 50 litres kegs, glass and 0.75 and 1 litre PET bottles.
Brewery is located in Krnov city centre, premises of former textile mill Karnola at Textilnístreet. The idea of brewery founding came about in 2014, first brew was made on 2nd November 2015.
Heart of our brewery is two-vessels stainless brewhouse with capacity of 10hl of sprouted wort with electro-oil kettle and integrated whirlpool tun. Malt is prepared in roll mill and is manually dosed to lauter tun. Our beer is brewed using its original gravity and is not adulterated any more.
Main and late fermentation takes place in cylinder conical tanks (CCT) with capacity of 10 and 20hl. Don’t worry, we are not talking about enormous tanks used elsewhere to speed up production. During main fermentation we leave the tank open, gather the cover up, observe temperatures and process as in open fermentation room. During late fermentation tanks are closed and beer is left at low temperature for necessary period of time. Tanks are equipped with sheathed cooling system which allows us to control the temperature at fermentation and late fermentation more precisely, as well as with internal sanitation for maximum ensuring of surface cleanness.
