Prague Beer and Czech Tapas Tour

Description

If you’re seeking an authentic, local beer and culinary experience in Prague, you’ve come to the right place. The Czech people consume the most beer in the world, and a visit to Prague just wouldn’t be complete without touring the beer halls that the Czech Republic is famous for!

Spend the evening indulging in the local water - Czech beer! Visit Zizkov, the area of Prague that has the highest concentration of beer halls. Sample the famed Pilsner Urquell as well as some local microbrews, and even get the chance to tap your own beer! As you drink, you’ll hear of local stories and history, savour typical Czech 'beer tapas', and gain a much-deserved appreciation for Prague and its rich history, beer, and food.

Itinerary

Are you up for the best beer and culinary tour in Prague? Then let’s go! Let us lead you on this tour of the most reputable (though not always the most beautiful) beer sanctuaries in the city. A local tour guide leads this Prague beer tour along tram and Metro rides to visit five beer halls where you’ll sample five beers (0.3 L) and four typical Czech “beer tapas”.

While appreciating the high quality of Czech beer, you will also hear stories about exciting moments in the country’s history and Czech lifestyle from the Middle Ages through Communism to the present. During the tour you will be able to enlarge your beer coaster collection and even buy beer cosmetics.

We will begin our tour at the statue of the Czech patron saint, King Wenceslas, on top of Wenceslas Square (Václavské námÄ›stí). It was here that many demonstrations took place during Communism and the Velvet Revolution in 1989 that brought down totalitarian rule.

We will take a tram and arrive at a typical beer hall. On the way to the first pub, we will pass by the tallest television tower adorned with “crawling babies” by the famous Czech contemporary artist David Cerny. The beer hall is located in the Prague 3 Zizkov district, home to the biggest density of pubs in the city, and despite that, not many tourists. Prague beer fans have voted this pub the most popular in the city, offering more than ten kinds of beer. Choose from the most famous Czech brands and lesser-known brands from small Czech microbreweries, and sample one Kozel beer, which ranks as the most exported Czech beer. Or, you can choose one small beer by Svijany or Primator. In this beer hall, visitors can see pictures of the Communist Czech presidents, so naturally this is the best place to tell you absurd stories about life under Communism. You will also taste marinated streaky pork in chilli and beer, served with horseradish and mustard.

Next, we will take the Metro back to the Old Town and visit the pub where the very first Pilsner Urquell draught was tasted in 1843. Of course, you’ll get to sample Pilsner Urquell, the most famous Czech beer, from a tank (not a keg), which means that the beer contains less CO2 and therefore tastes much better; it is very difficult to find this kind of beer abroad. There is no better place to tell beer-related stories in Prague than in this pub. Part of the pub is located inside a former church that was destroyed in the Hussite Wars during the 15th century! You will also learn about the “birth” of Pilsner beer, one of the most famous beers in the world. Before you leave this pub, you will also learn the story behind “Pinka’s nightmare.” In addition to the delicious Pilsner beer, you will taste potato pancakes with gravy…mmmmm!

After sampling the world-renowned Pilsner Urquell, we shift gears and head to one of the most famous local microbreweries, founded in 1466. This brewery was returned to the original owners after the fall of Communism in 1989, and we think it is the best place to learn about the beer culture of Czechs today. As this place still brews its own beer, you will be able to taste their products alongside an assortment of cheese in oil and beer.

Then we will head to the pub where executioners would go a drink in the medieval ages! As you savor another of the best Pilsner beers in Prague, you will learn about life during medieval times.

The tour is not over yet! Next, we clear our heads with a walk to the pub where customers can tap their own beer! One glass of Gambrinus Excedent (0.3 l), one of the most favourite local beers, is also included in the tour. In this pub we’ll also treat you to pickled sausage, probably the most famous Czech beer snack. We will either finish the tour at this pub or take you to Old Town Square around the corner – whatever you fancy!

As there are too many high quality beer halls to fit into one tour, at the end of the excursion you will be given a map of Prague’s best beer halls, indicating our other favourite and renowned pubs.
