Starting in Wenceslas Square in the evening, your guide will show you Prague’s bustling beer scene on a leisurely walk through the city, taking the tram and the metro sometimes when necessary. You’ll visit several beloved beer sanctuaries, buzzing local hotspots, popular beer halls and a microbrewery. Throughout your 4-hour tour, your guide will teach you about the city’s history, culture and heritage, starting with a story about how Wenceslas Square is tied with Communism and the Velvet Revolution of 1989.
Hop on the tram and head to a favorite local beer hall in Zizkov, a former industrial suburb that has become the epicenter of Prague's rough-and-tumble nightlife. This less-touristy area is home to the most pubs of any other Prague district — more than 300 in just 2 square miles (5 sq km)!
Choose from 10 kinds of beer, from the most famous Czech brands to lesser-known brews from small Czech microbreweries. Pair your beer with hearty pork chili, served with horseradish and mustard. Surrounded by walls adorned with pictures of the Communist Czech presidents, you'll hear stories about life under Communism as you enjoy your beer.
Board the metro and head to a pub in Old Town for your second beer tasting. Sample Pilsner Urquell, the most famous Czech beer, from a tank rather than a keg. With less fizz, tank beers taste much better — it's hard to find this kind of beer anywhere else! You will also learn about the birth of Pilsner, one of the most famous beers in the world.
Shifting gears a bit, head next to one of Prague's best-known microbreweries, founded in 1466. Learn more about Czech beer culture as you taste the beers made on-site, alongside an assortment of cheese.
Your next pub visit has an interesting history — it was once a favorite hangout spot of executioners in the Middle Ages. Learn about life in Prague during medieval times as you savor another Pilsner.
Enjoy the fresh air as you walk to a nearby pub, where you can tap your own beer. Try another favorite local beer paired with pickled sausage, probably the most famous Czech beer snack.
Your tour ends here or your guide can take you to Old Town Square around the corner — whatever you prefer. Because there are so many more fantastic beer venues to enjoy in Prague, your guide will leave you with a map of the city’s best beer halls. Enjoy!
