Best Czech Beer Trails
When one says the Czech Republic, most people will recall some architectural landmarks. And also a beverage that has the longest tradition in the Czech Republic - beer. Beer has been brewed here for centuries, and even the Pilsner lager was invented in the Czech Republic in the 19th century. It happened in the city of Plzen, or Pilsen. Recently, breweries have been experiencing a boom, which has also given rise to microbreweries, looking for new ways in this tradition. We will show you where to go on a trip along a beer trail.

Krkonoše Beer Trail

The Krkonoše Mountains can be found in the north of Bohemia. The Krkonoše Beer Trail, open until the end of September, connects the most beautiful and the highest parts of the Krkonoše Mountains and excellent beer. The Krkonoše Beer Trail offers visitors a mountain hike that is about thirty kilometres long, with four stops where you can enjoy beer from five local microbreweries (Hendrych Brewery – Friesovy boudy, Pivovarská Bašta with its Krkonošský Medvěd beer, Trautenberk Brewery, Pec Brewery, and Penzion Andula with the Fries beer).

Podorlice Beer Cycling Trail

If you are a fan of cycling, you will be happy to make your bike tours more interesting with some unusual adventures. Try the Beer Bike Tour, the longest beer trail in the Czech Republic, where you can learn about the history of three breweries in the Podorlice Region in East Bohemia. The individual trails offer various difficulty levels and you will visit the breweries in Rychnov nad Kněžnou, Dobruška and Potštejn. The longest one is 41 km, and the shortest 5 km. Everyone can choose. Naturally, you can taste the beer or at least tour the breweries along the way.

South Bohemian Beer Trails

In South Bohemia, you can hike or cycle along six beer tourist trails. They include, for example, Budvar in České Budějovice, Samson, Dudák in Strakonice, and a whole range of microbreweries. Six beer trails offer the opportunity to taste different beers and see the nearby tourist destinations, such as the Orlík Chateau, Vyšší Brod Monastery or the Šumava National Park.

Tišnov Beer Trail

In the Tišnov region in South Moravia, near the city of Brno, a large number of microbreweries making original beer has appeared in recent years. There are seven places that participate in the Tišnov Beer Trail, and the trail will take you to praised breweries of Kvasar or Genuis Loci. Before setting out, we recommend getting more information at the Tourist Information Centre in Tišnov. Cheers!

Ore Mountains Beer Trail

Light and dark lagers from Žatec hops, wheat light beers following German recipes, or refreshing low-alcohol lemonades – you can find all of that along the Ore Mountains Beer Trail in North Bohemia. The trail connects twelve Czech and German breweries in one loop trail for all beer enthusiasts. You will taste some local brands, created from the long tradition of brewing beer on both sides of the border. The taps offer hearty porter and stout, top-fermented ales, or radlers from the herbs and mountain spring water from the Ore Mountains. You can start the trail directly in Žatec, at the Temple of Hop and Beer.

Lusatian Mountains Beer Trail

The Lusatian Mountains, a scenic mountain range in the north of Bohemia, are a popular place with brewers. Large breweries and microbreweries share the neighbourhood. The Beer Trail connects them all, and it also offers adventures that will refresh you as much as a properly chilled lager when wandering from one brewery to another. The trail connects popular breweries, such as Kocour in Varnsdorf, or the Cvikov Brewery, as well as small family-owned businesses, such as Kotouč in Česká Kamenice.  The Lusatian Mountains Beer Trail can be hiked in a few days or toured on bike over the weekend. It has about ten stops and you can start in Česká Kamenice, or Česká Lípa in the Bohemian Switzerland National Park.


Beskids Beer Trail

The Beskids Beer Trail in Moravia will take you through the picturesque countryside of this charming mountain range. The trail connects small and large breweries where you can taste the differences between the individual beers. Naturally, you can combine the pleasant with the useful and rest between the hikes or learn about the art of brewing. This trail includes 16 participating microbreweries, for example, the Hukvaldy Microbrewery, the Štramberk Town Brewery, or Beskydský pivovárek Ostravice.
