The Czech drinks group, Drinks Union, has acquired the brewer, Pivovary Kutna Hora, in the town of Kutna Hora in Central Bohemia. Drinks Union has plans to expand production at the brewery and add new products while maintaining the company's traditional brands.

The town of Kutna Hora is to retain ownership of the brewery's premises and some of the plant but the capital injection from Drinks Union will allow the brewer to expand production from 70,000 hls to 250,000 hls. The town itself only took over the brewery two years ago from Pivovary Bohemia in attempt to maintain local beer production.

In September, Drinks Union finalised its acquisition of Pivovary Louny.
