Beer Events - August

Summer’s in full swing and the August heat is now upon us. For those who aren’t escaping to a crowded coast, the best, easiest, and most affordable way to beat the heat is with a cold beer or two in hand. Events are starting to pick up as we move closer to September’s annual beer festivals. Most events for August are in the villages of the Czech countryside, so this a golden opportunity to experience a new village’s choice beverage and ambiance.

Litomyšlský Pivní Festiválek

The beautiful town of Litomyšl will host a beer festival with free admission. The local microbrewery Veselka organizes the event, so you’ll be able to try 11 and 12° light lagers, an 11° amber lager, as well as a few beers specially brewed for this event.

August 5th, 10 a.m- 10 p.m.

 

Memoriál Vladimíra Černohorského

Černokostelecký Brewery hosts a relay race, designed for teams of 4, in which each team runs to 3 different breweries: Pivovar Dolní Počernice, Pivovar Kolčavka, and Únětice Pivovar. It says that a bike escort is allowed. Beer drinking at each stop is most probably mandatory. Be ready at 9, the race starts at 10.

Mikulovské Pivobraní

A picturesque town in Moravia, Mikulov is well known for it’s wines, but not beers. This year they’ll host their 7th annual beer festival with supposedly over 80 different kinds of beer. Complete with live music and a kids zone, it sounds like a huge event. Their website asked the question, ‘What will this festival offer? (Co festival nabídne?)’ and answers ‘Beer, Women, and Voice! (PIVO, ŽENY A ZPĚV!)’. One does wonder.
