Czech Brewery Tours

Should I ever win the lottery, or make a million bucks with my own brewery, I think I would enjoy taking the Belgian Beer Me! tour and then one of these Czech Brewery Tours. [It's pretty obvious whoever wrote this page used a translation program, but still . . ]

We'll take a guided tour, followed by lunch and a degustation deep below the monastery. Next it's a short ride over to Konrad, founded in the recent year of 1872.

We'll start off in walled city of Jihlava at the Jezek brewery where we'll have a chance to drink from wide variety of beers including the 18° Grand (one of the thousand beers to try before you die). From there we go to brewery Poutnik which still uses some very old fashioned techniques. We'll have a beer and take some for the road. But it's just a quick ride over to Hubertus for their stellar Kvasnicove lager brewed at the foot of another old monastery.

For lunch nobody should miss the chance to stop at Modra Hvezda, a relatively new brewpub opened on the premises of the towns old brewery. To cap off the tour, we go to Pilsner Urquell, reigning king of Czech beers. After the brewery tour, we'll reserved a place at Na Parkanu, the only pub in the world serving unfiltered Pilsner Urquell.
