BREWERY: Pivovar Hurbanovo

Corgon LogoThe Nitra Brewery started producing beer in 1896. It was eventually made into a public company and the name was changed to Karšay Brewery. In 1992 they created the Corgon brand. Five years later, the company was bought by Heneiken which helped it modernize and expand. In 2007, the beer moved its production to Brewery Hurbanovo.
In English Corgoň means “champion”. This made it a natural sponsor for many sporting events including Slovakia’s national football/soccer league and basketball league.
