Saint Lawrence´s feast – 10th August

Saint Lawrence and The Hop

 

 The esteem in which the Czech hop producers holds Saint Lawrence as their patron is seen in the fact  that almost all Czech growers from all three Czech  regions (Saaz, Auscha, Tirschitz ) gather every year in order to celebrate his feast. Each of the regions  helds own celebration. BOHEMIA HOP and CHMELARSTVI support and  participate in these feasts in order to pay tribute to Saint Lawrence and support Czech growers in their activities.

The general meeting of Chmelařství, družstvo Žatec and a general meeting of Bohemia Hop, a.s. took place on 11th June 2014 in Žatec (Saaz). The participants elected a new board of Chmelarstvi and Bohemia Hop, a.s. Both companies have the same members of the board. All members have been elected for a 5-year executive period.
