The shop at brewery is the place to buy best upon leaving the town. There you can find all the possible Budvar beers as well as souvenirs. Buy limited term beer - the best from all the Budweiser line, this beer can't be found abroad.
An informative tour to the brewing factory. We saw how beers are brewed and bottled from the first scene, with a complimentary cup of beer directly from the maturing cask!
It was a great experience!!!! Unfortunately the group was too big (40 people) and the guide seemed very insecure and talked way too fast !!!! Usually in these situations the guide wears a microphone, so the whole group can hear all the information.
The beer heaven! 🥰
nice and informative tour; 1 small cup of unfiltrated and unpasteurisized beer, once in a lifetime chance 👌
