Prague, like Munich or Pilsen, is a beer city. Hardly any city in Europe is so much connected with the hop juice as Prague. Many tourists come to Prague to learn more about beer and the beer city Prague. Meanwhile there are dozens of possibilities to learn more about beer in tours. There is also a great beer museum. In addition, you can visit the great Prague brewery. Pub tours and beer tasting are also very popular. Below we have summarized some offers about beer in Prague. Of course, all tours and offers, where alcohol is drunk, are from 18 years.
The Beer Museum Prague
The Beer Museum is one of the top 10 museums in Prague. We have written a separate article about the interesting exhibition in the city center. You can find it here: https://prag-infos.de/biermuseum_prag/
The Staropramen Brewery
Staropramen (translated Old Spring) is the largest brewery in Prague and the second largest brewery in the Czech Republic after the very large brewery in Pilsen. Staropramen is a large brewery in the Smichov district. Very interesting for tourists in a tour of the brewery. The brewery tour starts in the visitor center, you can book the tour on the Internet: >>> Link to booking brewery tour Staropramen and more info
The Strahov Monastery Brewery
This famous brewery is located in a monastery above the Lesser Town near Prague Castle. The Strahov monastery itself is a sight to see. Many visitors go to the monastery church and the famous old library. The interesting Museum of Miniatures Prague is also here. We recommend friends of beer to visit the brewery pub “Pivovar Strahov”. The 6 beers brewed in the brewery can be ordered here. In addition, there is good Czech food. We had a roast beef with dumplings for about 11 euros on New Year’s Day 2022.
Strahov’s main beer is the St. Norbert Amber Lager. The strong, fruity St. Norbert Amber Lager (6.3%) also tastes great. There is also the St. Norbert Anniversary Lager and the light Sv. Norbert Session Hazy IPA. In addition, two strong beers or bock beers. Very strong is the “St. Norbert One Last Beer” (10% alcohol !) and the seasonal St. Norbert Christmas Doppelbock (7.7%).
Great beer tasting for tourists
For many, a highlight in a trip to Prague is a beer tasting. There is a long tradition of brewing beer in the Czech Republic, much like in Germany. There are several types of beers. During a beer tasting, you can try them all and the differences and peculiarities of the different types of beer are explained.
We really like the beer tasting that takes place every day in the center of Prague. You can book it on the internet, the explanations about the beers are given by an expert in English. You get 7 different beers to sample, plus a typical Czech cheese. In addition, there are explanations about the beer and you can ask many questions. Cheap tour, best reviews from participants, nice and informative guide. From our point of view one of the best tours in Prague! >>> More info and booking beer tasting Prague
