It was founded in 1853 by German settler Henrique Kremer, an artist at the time, with the name Cervejaria Bohemia. When he died in 1865, the company was left to his heirs, who renamed it Augusto Kremer & Cia. Little more than a decade later, the partners separated and the company was left under the charge of Frederico Guilherme Lindscheid.
At the time of its founding, Bohemia preserved the characteristics of German beers in the era, with initial production of six thousand bottles per month. The product was distributed by carriages, animal-drawn carts, etc., and sales were made directly. Later, sales began going through retailers in the region of Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro.
Over time, the bitter and strong characteristics of German beers were changed to conform to the market at the time and competing brands, and the flavor was made lighter and less bitter, eventually reaching the point at which it is sold today.
With control in the hands of Frederico, the company changed its name to Imperial Fábrica de Cerveja Nacional, and when he died in 1898, his daughter, who was married to the company’s founder’s grandson Herique Kremer Jr., created the Companhia Cervejaria Bohemia.
In 1960 the company was purchased by Companhia Antarctica Paulista, with production at the time of ten thousand cases per month. It is currently part of AmBev.
The proposed system aims to distribute audio signals in the different environments that make up the museum complex, such as Sala do Mestre, Estúdio, Envase, Imersão e Degustação. This high number brought unique issues to be resolved in the design, especially regarding the structure required for integration of the different systems.
The design also takes into consideration the different visual projection sources to which the audio is interconnected, giving visitors a true multimedia experience.
The system encompasses several subdivisions, installed in the different environments. However, audio processing and control will be centralized in three technical areas, distributed throughout the complex to facilitate operation. The system is interconnected via network connection with interface through RMC-810 boards, enabling individual control of each amplifier, in addition to monitoring potential failures in any of the equipment.
Unlike systems with 100% digital infrastructure, the proposed system features greater versatility, enabling easy handling by operators, musicians and maintenance professionals, in addition to lower deployment cost and requiring more affordable manpower for installation. Another key factor for using an analog infrastructure is system “scalability”, where an upgrade is possible without depending on proprietary technologies and protocols.
