As a resident of Southville I'm lucky to have such a excellent resource on my doorstep

Tim Young, audience member



We are enormously grateful to the following companies that are supporting Tobacco Factory Theatres as we stage world-class productions:

Budvar is proud to support Tobacco Factory Theatres during BrouHaHa Comedy Week 2014.

Budvar have been brewing since 1895. Just like any good comedian Budvar are very fussy about where they source their material. They use only the best to induce the maximum happy making factor. For instance they use only whole hops, female and virgin in their brewing, the finest Moravian barley malt from the Czech Hana and spring water of tooth tingling purity that comes chuckling out of an ice age lake 300 meters under the brewery.
Great comedy and lovely beer demand a sense of timing if they are to achieve perfection. With Original Budweiser Budvar this means a brewing cycle of 100 days, 90 of them spent in the process of natural fermentation in the cellars of their brewery in Southern Bohemia. Timing is everything – release it too early and the taste that makes Budvar beer so special would be lost but get the timing just right, as their brewmaster always does, and you have perfection. Try it for yourself! www.budweiserbudvar.co.uk
