There are a total of 52 mini-breweries in Prague. “At the time of the covid, three of them closed and another five, especially in the center, are asleep and waiting to wake up,” said Jan Šuráň, president of the Czech-Moravian Association of Mini-Breweries. There are currently 483 microbreweries in the whole Czech Republic. There are 20 to 30 of them every year. Last year, a total of five of them closed, another 20 of them reduced their activities and are waiting for better times. Even in this situation, however, their numbers are growing, mostly projects that have already been launched. In 2020, 29 more were added, and this year six breweries.
