krusovice_brewery_group_tours_prague

The Royal Brewery of Krusovice is  one of the oldest breweries in the Czech Republic. The brewery was established in 1517 by Jiri Birka. Krušovice is the only Czech beer brand that was  owned by the Czech crown. Rudolph II, the Roman emperor and Czech king, acquired the brewery in 1583, and it remained in royal possession for a century. Its location in the world famous Saaz hop-growing region and next to the beautiful Křivoklát forests is the best address where to brew high-quality Czech beer. Only the finest ingredients, i.e. aromatic Saaz hops, the excellent water from the nearby Křivoklát forests and premium barley, are used in the brewing process.

STAROPRAMEN  / AUDIO VISUAL SHOW
Multimedia show in a worldwide famous brewery.

Bus needed: no
Duration: 2 hours
Included: Entrance fee to Staropramen audio – visual visitor centre

Staropramen brewery

Staropramen is a worldwide famous brewery. The brewery itself is located in Prague. In the past the visits used to be possible right into the brewing production. However, from 2011 the production is closed for visitors. Instead, Staropramen has created a magical audio-visual show that will tell you all about the history and presence of the  brewery in an interactive way. The tour is located in the original Brewery, so you can still see part of the original beer house. The multimedia show will guide through the brewery and will let you “look into” many different parts of the brewing process. The tour ends in a cosy bar, where you can taste the Staropramen beer. You can also ask the friendly staff questions connected to the brewing.
