Tomas Branyik, RIBM

Our mission since 1887 has been to conduct research, provide services and education in the brewing and malting industry at home and abroad. RIBM provides services for barley growers and breeders, companies active in agricultural supply, breweries, producers of both alcoholic and soft beverages, as well as for state management bodies. The analytical testing laboratories in Prague and Brno are both accredited by Czech Accreditation Institute under ČSN EN ISO/IEC 17025, no. 1309 and 1309.2. RIBM has initiated the idea of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) “České pivo” (Czech beer). Since 2008 RIBM verifies the properties of barley and hops and is the only institution empowered to recommend suitable varieties for the production of PGI Czech beer. In implementing R&D projects RIBM cooperates with a number of industrial partners, research organizations and universities and its activities often extend beyond the fields of brewing and malting.
