About Me

Bike or climb

Bike, climbing and beer inspire me my whole life. Climbing attempts were followed by bike adventures for breweries, during which I easily passed 200 km distance. The love for beer stayed in my heart, I graduated from UCT Prague in Biotechnology and started my carrier as a brewmaster in Němý Medvěd in Mělník and then in India for some time. Nowadays, I occupy my self with beer research in Budvar while studying for Ph.D. at VŠCHT.
