Brewing is a very important part of the food industry with a successful tradition. Beer, brewer’s malt and hops are important for export too. The situation in the beer market is changing dramatically at this time. Smaller local breweries are fighting with big competitors for the first time through expansion and innovation of the production line. Brewing development will be probably the same as in another European states, where are twenty big breweries to a thousand small ones. The strategy of Czech beer production is focused on the traditional production of classic Czech beer. For small breweries there are big opportunities in beer tourism, beer path building, brewery sight- seeing and brewery festivals for example.
This paper describes a particular firm’s activities with using Porter’s value chain and an analysis of its financial situation. In final part the Strength and Weakness analysis of the company Pivovar a sodovkárna Jihlava, a. s. is done and on the basis of the results are defined the appropriate advices.

(2004). The research on trade in food is solved firstly by Presová and Tvrdoň (2005).
