Are you up for the best beer and culinary tour in Prague? Then let’s go! Let us lead you on this tour of the most reputable (though not always the most beautiful) beer sanctuaries in the city. A local tour guide leads this Prague beer tour along tram and Metro rides to visit five beer halls where you’ll sample five beers (0.3 L) and four typical Czech 'beer tapas'. (Yes, that is a real thing, promise!)
While appreciating the delicious Czech beer, you will also hear stories about exciting moments in the country’s history and Czech lifestyle, from the Middle Ages through Communism to the present.
We will begin our Prague food tour at the statue of the Czech patron saint, Saint Wenceslas, on top of Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí). It was here that many demonstrations took place during Communism and the Velvet Revolution in 1989 that brought down totalitarian rule.
Next up on our beer tour we'll hop on the tram in search of a truly hidden gem at Vinohrady, where, aside from a jolly and cosy atmosphere, this beer cellar and garden also serves up 27 different Czech microbrewery beers! Don't worry, we'll help you choose. We'll also savour some pickled sausage, one of the most famous Czech beer snacks, which is served with onion and pepper. In our opinion, this place does it best in all of Prague, and trust us...we've done our homework.
Time to switch gears, but who knows where we'll end up next! As local experts, we've always got our eyes peeled for what's going on in the city, so the next stop will vary based on the season and what's happening - who has the most interesting beer on today, which pub has a band playing, etc. It's up to you and your guide where you head to for this part of the adventure!
Next, we will take the metro back to the Old Town for a legendary stop at the pub where the very first Pilsner Urquell draught was tasted in 1843. Of course, you’ll get to sample Pilsner Urquell, the most famous Czech beer, from a tank rather than a keg, which means that the beer contains less CO2 and therefore tastes much better; it is very difficult to find this kind of beer abroad. There is no better place to tell beer-related stories in Prague than in this pub, and as part of it is set in a former church it's a pretty funky hangout ,too! You will also learn about the birth of Pilsner, one of the most famous beers in the world, and which will be helpful in washing down a true Bohemian specialty - finely smoked pork neck with homemade potato pancakes and Bohemian-style white cabbage. Deeeelish!
After sampling the world-renowned Pilsner Urquell, we shift gears and head to a rather cosy new brewery pub near the Old Town square, where we'll finish up our Prague beer tour in style, with new friends and stories you'll remember for a long, long time.
As there are just too many fantastic beer halls to fit into one tour, at the end of this Prague beer tour you will be given a map of Prague’s best beer halls, which point out some of our other favourites spots in the city!

Looking for an introduction to Prague in general and Czech beer culture in particular, I couldn't have asked for a better night out than this, with the expert guidance of Niki to open my eyes to the best that Prague had to offer.
Of course, the fact that the other group members failed to arrive at Wenceslas Square at the appointed time for the tour to start needs to be mentioned, as I ended up having a one-to-one guided tour around four of the more interesting bars in the city, as well as a real "local" view of Prague's history, culture and political background.
It helped Niki and I to bond that I already knew a few things about Vaclav Havel and Jan Kubis and Josef Gabcik, but I learned so much about the Czech drinking culture, the city's history and it's place in the region - he was a real treasure trove of facts and stories, delivered in a friendly and fun way - the night flew by, well beyond the advertised three hour duration, which should be closer to four or so.
I've done a few of these guided tours, in cities like Lisbon, Berlin, Athens and Istanbul, but this was amongst the best that I've ever been on - thanks to a combination of Niki's excellent guidance and some of the best beer I've tasted in a long time.
I particularly liked that we went off the beaten path, away from the obvious tourist spots, to sample bars that the locals frequent. That was one of the best aspects of the tour.
An excellent experience and highly recommended to any visitor to Prague.

Had a lovely evening discovering Prague's not so touristy beer bars. The guide Nikki was knowledgeable on beer, snacks and locations and great to talk with. Will definitely go on an adventure with you again!
