Begin your 5-hour evening tour when you meet your friendly local guide in Wenceslas Square.
Listen to an appetite-whetting introduction to Prague’s beer scene, and hear how Wenceslas Square was pivotal in Prague’s recent history, presiding over the protests that kick-started the 1989 Velvet Revolution.
Then, start your explorations of the city’s beer haunts. Along the way, ride Prague’s public trams and metro trains where necessary (tickets are included), and call at five inviting bars and pubs, as well as a trendy microbrewery.
Board a tram on route to a popular beer hall in Žižkov, a former industrial district that’s now the hub of Prague's nightlife. Take your pick from 10 types of beer, from well-known Czech brands to under-the-radar brews from up-and-coming microbreweries. Team your brew with mouth-watering pork chilli served with horseradish and mustard, and as you eat and drink, peruse the pictures of communist Czech presidents that coat the walls as your guide tells stories about life in Prague during the communist era.
Next, ride the metro to the Vinohrady area. Visit a pub with 27 beers on tap and choose a brew that takes your fancy, with tips from your guide. Enjoy your beer with a classic Czech snack — pickled sausage. Then, continue to another watering hole, chosen by your guide on the day, depending on, for instance, if it has a band playing or speciality brew on tap.
Move on to another atmospheric pub in Prague Old Town. Head inside to sample the Czech Republic’s iconic Pilsner Urquell beer from a tank rather than a keg, and as you savor the flavor, learn about the invention of Pilsner, one of the world’s best-loved beers.
Finish your tour with a last glass at a welcoming microbrewery. Then, say goodbye to your guide, and receive a complimentary map of Prague’s best beer halls — perfect if you’re planning to continue your beer-tasting adventures independently.
