World Beers is a father and son combination with a rich history of four generations’ experience working with some of the best beers in the world, showing that beer really is in our genes!
Our beer roots began in Prague, Bohemia in the 19th Century with the Karsten family owning multiple maltings in and around the city until the Communist takeover in 1948, of what was then Czechoslovakia. The original Robert Karsten was a master maltster who developed malt strains for many of the major brewers. One of his original customers was Pilsner Urquell!
Latterly in the UK World Beers was formed in 2011, taking over the UK distributorships previously handled for over 30 years by Surfax Ltd which started by importing Clausthaler (non-alcoholic) beers into the UK.
World Beers Ltd continues to import and represent some of the best beer brands around.
