Three Micro breweries over approximately 3 1/2 hours guided by Thomas, who is very knowledgeable and engaging. Thomas created a very relaxed atmosphere and was full of knowledge about the breweries, brewing process and the history of Czech beer. Excellent value and well worth the money. One or two of the beers were a bit strange, but that is part of what you go on the tour for, to try beer you would otherwise never experience. I never left any!
I am probably going to come back next year with a different group of people including the wife this time. If I do, I'll book this tour again and hope I get Thomas as a guide.
It's possible our guide, Tomas, has the best job I've ever heard of : He is very knowledgeable about the local history and the breweries we toured, and showed a genuine interest in our preferences and respective countries our tour included people from Sweden, UK, and USA. Our tour included three stops, the first of which, Pivovarsky Dum, was the newest about twenty years old. The name translates roughly to 'brewer's guild' and we were offered a sample wheel of eight different types of beer. There were the usual suspects light, dark, wheat and some unusual offerings which were quite good nettle was my personal favorite, but I may have been alone on that, and a couple which were interesting to have experienced but not something I'd seek out in the future I'm looking at you, banana.
Next, we went to U Fleku, which was established at that location in 1499, and has used the same building since the 17th century. We enjoyed their signature beverage, a dark beer which was lovely and the atmosphere was jovial. Our final stop was U Medvidku, which opened in 1466. The building was originally quite small, and a larger commercial space built up around it over the years. It is unlikely we would have found this gem on our own.
This tour is an excellent introduction to the history of beer in Prague. I must do for brewers or beer aficionados!
Excellent way to enjoy beer in Prague! The tour included a lesson on the history of beer making, the origin of beer names, and the traditions of beer culture in Prague, all while drinking the local delicacy. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Prague!
Guide was very knowledgeable and it was a great experience.
We were very fortunate in that my friend and I got to do this tour on our own, as the two other people that were meant to join were no shows.
We had an incredible time learning from our very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide about the history of Czech beer and the breweries we visited, and about the beer industry in general.
Would recommend you do this trip if you are interested in beer!
We went to 3 places and tried lots of beer and nice sausage at the first place. The second place was black beer that was my most favorite . And the last place was awesome , they have Guiness record beer!!
The tour was great. Our guide was an American who lives in Prague, so she was able to show us around with ease. The beer samples were great and she did a good job educating our small group about beer production and beer history. This is a great tour to get into some places that would be difficult to manage without speaking Czech.
Gary knew his stuff. We Liked the last brewery the best. Worth the money if you like beer and want to know about the local brewing history. Good tips on other drinking places around town. Cheers and ' nice driveway' Lol Gary!
