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.
