Travel Tip: the Czech Beer Festival

Every May something wonderful happens in Prague: 17 days of continuous beer drinking punctuated by delicious Czech and Moravian food. Starting May 17 will be the 5th annual Czech Beer Fest - you don't want to miss it!


The Fest takes place at the gigantic Prague Exhibition Centre: 10,000 seats in three large tents makes for one unbeatable atmosphere. Each tent has its own stage and unique cultural program. You’re served by 200 girls and boys in Czech national costumes.

Sample up to 70 different brands of Czech beer draught - some of the best in the world - and enjoy food from the finest Czech chefs, butchers and bakers.
Here is a list of all the breweries and brewed beer.

Admission is free! You pay for drinks and meals with beer festival money called “tolars” - which you can exchange at the festival and even buy them from your server. The exchange rate is about 1 Tolar = CZK 44 (= $2.60 USD). Buy them in packs of five. All half-liters of beer are only 1 Tolar.
