The Czech Beer Festival in Prague 2016

Czech Beer Festival

If you’re into Bohemian Beer then don’t miss out on this hop lovers event as over 10,000 people gather to celebrate these hallowed brews at the annual Czech Beer Festival in Prague 2016. With live music and entertainment in the specially set-up marquees in Prague’s lovely Letna Park, it’s sure to be a event not to miss if you’re visiting Prague in May.

Na zdraví! (Or ‘cheers’!)

What’s happening at the Festival?

Mostly drinking beer. Or pivo as it’s locally known. May 12th to 28th sees tents erected and traditional costumes dusted down as the beer connoisseurs gather to taste some (or all) of the 150 national and international beers on tap. Expect thousands of litres to be consumed, and with the standard of ‘pivo’ being pretty high in the Czech Republic, to taste some great local beer! There’s even a tent dedicated to ‘foreign beers’, just to have a little diversity. And where there’s beer in Prague – there’s beer cheese! Don’t miss out on the pickles and spicy sausages too – and you have yourself a typical plate of Czech haute cuisine. There’s also a full menu of traditional food to sample throughout your day and to balance out some of that beer.
