Beer festivals are an excellent opportunity for you to taste authentic Czech beer. It is a tradition that every fairly large brewery has its festival at least once a year.
And what is the programme for this year like?
You can expect a lot of beer, beer specialities in the form of various kinds of grilled meat and cheese and musical performances!
Visit, for example, the Bernard Fest 2023 (16–17 June) in Humpolec, Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, CLOCK/DAY (29 July) in the eastern Bohemian village of Potštejn or the Radegast Day (August) at the Radegast Brewery in Nošovice.
In addition to beer and food, the programme also features cultural and musical events as is appropriate to a proper festival.
Then, Dočesná in Žatec (1–2 September) is an event combining the features of a beer and music festival. The town that gave its name to the highest-quality hop variety has prepared a quality musical programme involving the tasting of more than 100 beer types this year.
And where you can go if you want to taste the best of various breweries at once?
Finally, the Minibrewery Festival (9–10 June) at Prague Castle is of the highlights of all Czech exhibitions of minibreweries. The top 66 Czech and Moravian minibreweries and three foreign minibreweries take part in it.
