This is an excellent tour. I booked the tour originally because I knew my Fiancé would enjoy it. I am not a huge beer person. I ended up enjoying a lot of the beers and my Fiancé also loved it. Thomas was our guide and was a great guide that offered tons of info and fun, and took his time. Thank you
This tour was absolutely wonderful for anyone who likes beer. And even if you only like beer a little, this tour might convince you to like it more! Our guide Tomas was just great-he was personable, knowledgable about beer and about Prague (even gave us a restaurant suggestion), and he answered all questions, and did not rush the tour itinerary. We started out on a trolley ride (uphill) to the first location-a relatively new (?20 years) microbrewery where Tomas provided a lot of information about components of beer, the differences between different kinds, and the Czech brewing traditions. There we each had a tasting of eight different beers presented in a wooden wheel holding the eight different glasses (see photo). Varieties ranged form pilsner to nettle, to banana beer. Something for everybody. After some time there where we also had some cheese and bread snacks to go with all the liquid refreshment, we headed out and made our way downhill (it was good to walk some of this off) to U Fleku, the oldest continuously operating brewery in Prague. There they had only one beer--a very unique and filling dark beer-and here they gave us each a whole mug. There was music in the place and a lot of happy people. Last we went to U Medvidku where there was a very enjoyable Czech lager. I seem to remember that this place dated back further than U Fleku, but had not been continuously operating as long. It was just a great tour with a small group so we could all interact with the guide and have our questions answered. My family appreciated Tomas’ dinner suggestion at a restaurant that was fairly close to our tour termination point, since after drinking beer all afternoon, we needed to consume some food. This tour is highly recommended. Just don’t tour and drive!
We liked our tour, we met some great folks from Sweden, who were also on the tour. This was a nice tour, not a pub crawl, so we got to taste some great beer, had some traditional Czech food and had great conversations with the guide and the other guests. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys micro-beer.
There are two things that make this tour, the beer is fantastic and the tour guide is awesome. Paul was super knowledgeable, not only beer but about Prague as a whole. Any questions the group had he answered honestly and gave great advice regarding other key things to do while in town. The tour starts off with a tasting or 7 beers at one brewery, moves on to the oldest brewery in Prague for a pint of the only beer they make my favorite and finishes off with one last pint at a small spot serving a nice old style Czech lager. The history of beer that came with the drinking made the experience that much more interesting and enjoyable. Would recommend this tour to any beer drinkers coming to Prague with a couple of hours to spare outside the normal tourist areas.
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!
