"Staropramen Brewery Tour" Daytrip -Pilsen -Brewery Tip by mbsimjam

Daytrip -Pilsen -Brewery, Prague: 7 reviews and 4 photos

Take a tour of one of the finest (3rd most famous) breweries in the country. It is close to downtown and easy to reach, and you learn a lot about the tradition of brewing in the Czech Republic, a nation that is famous for creating the "Pilsner" or "Lager" type beer, and for having some of the finest brew you can find anywhere in the world. In fact, I think it IS the best. Although most people would say German is the best, I think they are either Germans or Americans, because the beer there is too watery and thin. Some say Belgian. Although I think Belgian beer is the most INVENTIVE, it is not the best. The Czechs do not vary their beer very much. The concentrate on what they are good at...and that is Pilsner/Lager. And it is amazing!

My wife used to run the tours at Staropramen for a year or so. I have been on a few of them, and they are informative, interesting, and fun. After the tour, you can spend some time in the restaurant pub Na Verandach, the only place where you can have a pint of the unfiltered yeast beer, which is very VERY tasty...but careful not to have too many!!! You will pay for it the next day!
