Long Description:
V roce 1870 koupil popovické panství František Ringhoffer, starosta Smíchova a zakladatel svetoznámých prumyslových závodu. Postavil zde nový pivovar, který vybavil špickovou moderní technologií pocházející vetšinou z vlastních továren. Rok 1874, kdy byla uvarena první várka piva, je základním datem novodobé historie Velkopopovického Kozla, jehož známý emblém vytvoril potulný francouzský malír jako výraz díku za pohostinství.

After several other owners, the Popovice estate was bought in 1870 by Frantisek Ringhoffer, the Mayor of Smíchov and founder of the famous Ringhoffer Works. He built a brand new brewery in this location and equipped it with state-of-the-art technology, which came mostly from his own factories.

The year 1874, when the first batch of beer was brewed, is the foundation date of the modern history of the Velkopopovický Kozel, the emblem of which was created by a traveling French painter as an expression of thanks for the hospitality he received in Popovice when he stayed longer than he had originally expected.
