Spring Weather. Stunning Scenery. And some of the best beers in the world! With golden pilsners and a tradition of brewing that dates as far back as at least the year 993, it’s little wonder that The Czech Republic has the world’s highest beer consumption per capita. And every spring, the know exactly how to celebrate it.
The Czech Beer Festival takes place over 17 days every Spring, with more than 70 brands of top quality Czech beer served up right along side the best delicacies of Czech chefs, butchers, and bakers. We think it only makes sense to show up and enjoy a big 7 Day / 6 Night frothy mug for ourselves.

More To Life Than BeerOkay, time to see more of the city than the bottom of our mugs. We start at Old Town Square with its Astrological Clock, Old Town Hall and St. Nicholas Church. Then, a walk across the historic Charles Bridge to cross the Vltava River and head up the hill to Prague Castle. On the grounds overlooking the city, we will see St. Vitus Cathedral, the Powder Tower, the Old Royal Palace and Vladislav Hall, the Golden Lane, and the Royal Gardens. On the way back down from the Castle, we’ll take a route past the John Lennon Wall and the Kafka Museum. Late afternoon will wrap our schedule for the day. Travelers are free for dinner, and can head back to the festival to sample more of the Republic's best or opt for dinner at a city restaurant or pub.

Wenceslas Square and the GrottoHistoric Wenceslas Square starts off the day, Ground Zero for both oppressions and revolutions throughout the city's history. From there, it's a short walk back down to Old Town Square where we’ll make sure to be in front of the Astronomical Clock as it strikes the hour. Following a stroll through the Jewish Grotto, a tram ride will get us across the Vltava, this time to take a funicular ride 1,000 feet up to Petrin Hill to tour the landscaped gardens, see a miniature Eiffel Tower, a mirror maze and the Church of St. Michael. In the afternoon, we will head back to the Beer Festival as a group to enjoy an evening of food and pilsner (and maybe a little singing that breaks out the later in the day it gets).

OriginsPlzen. The Czech word for "pilsner," but also a charming town less than an hour outside of Prague by motor coach. The town where pilsner ale was born when locals had grown dissatisfied with available brews. We tour the Nizbor Bohemia glass factory and the Pilsner Urquell Brewery (arguably the Czech brewer most known throughout the world), with lunch in a local restaurant. We arrive back in Prague late in the late afternoon. After a chance to freshen up, we enjoy a group dinner at the strikingly beautiful and historic Café Louvre.
