Beer Events - September 2018 Upcoming Czech Beer Events & Festivals

As the leaves turn from a crinkled dusty green, and the intense heat of this summer finally (and hopefully) dissipates, September brings with it a golden month of beer culture and festivals throughout the Czech countryside.

This month’s events truly celebrate the institution of the village microbrewery, as we see many local microbreweries hosting their own beer festivals. Plzen, the historic epicenter of Czech beer culture, gets invaded by thirsty drinkers on numerous weekends.

Černokostelecké Vykulení

The microbrewery of Černokostelecký will host their annual ‘Vykulení’ on their charming brewery grounds. Expect a small (but better!) tap list of beers brewed on site, as well as lots of kids activities, food, and live music.

Mala Strana Beer Tasting Tour

An expertly curated walking tour through Prague’s gorgeous Mala Strana quarter, focusing on Czech microbrews. An excellent way to learn about the Czech Republic’s complex history through, well, our favorite beverage, beer. Five fresh beers are the main stay of this tour, each a different style, covering everything from lager history to contemporary IPAs.

Starts every Saturday at 3.30 or send an inquiry for your own private group.

Zichovec Beer Fest

Not to be outdone by their Plzen based fellow brewers, the Zihovec’s brewery grounds in Louny will host their own beer festival, featuring no doubt a wide selection of their ales and lagers. However for Prague hipsters get nothing.

For those curious about Czech craft beers, a Blind Beer Tasting challenge is a great way to not only test your beer style knowledge, but sample this country’s current beer trends and seasonal specialities. 8 Czech craft beers are hand chosen by a professional guide in up-beat and centrally located Ale Bar.

Held every Friday at 5 p.m, or by arrangement.

Slunce ve Skle

Aptly called ‘slunce ve skle’ or ‘sunshine in a glass’, Czech microbreweries from across the country converge on the microbrewery of Purkmistr in Plzen for a weekend of beers, music, and fun. Expect beers from larger microbreweries, as well as folks just testing their waters, literally. A great way to sample harder to find microbrews that don’t make it to Prague.

September 21-22

Pivní Festival

Vítězné Náměstí’s farmer’s market morphs into a beer festival on this particular Saturday morning. Normally a market of delicacies and produce, why not brighten your Saturday morning market shopping with a little beer.
