Four of us got to the brewery mid-morning, without tour reservations, but we were able to join a fairly large group of Japanese tourists who did have a reservation. The tour was conducted in Japanese, but the guides spoke English fluently and were happy to answer any specific questions we had. (We've been on many a brewery tour over the... More

Lovely lively place. The Duck is excellently cooked but portions are big. Recommending sharing between two. Be aware that here your beer is refilled automatically unless you put a coaster over your glass.

As we were with the car in Cesky Krumlov we 'jumped' to Ceske Budejovice for this tour and I must admit that it was quite nice tour. We saw what means mass production of beer in relatively small area/place. More important is that we tasted some beer that you cannot try/buy anywhere else. NOTE: You need to do a reservation...

This is not affiliated with the Budweiser from the USA. Everything here has trade marks and copy-write registration. Our tour was given by a gentleman who was happily retired after 42 yrs of working here as a QCM (quality controller manager). Retired for 8 years and loves being a tour guide for his previous employer. We got a lot of... More

OK, so maybe your came for other reasons - but since this is the one and only place they brew Budweiser Budvar (not that swill Americans think is beer - the is the original and real Budvar). The tour is worth the 5 Euros or so and the tour is inclusive of all the steps in the brewing process, including... More

Very informative insight into the production of beer and a walk through of the site in a small group by experienced and interested personnel demonstrating the history of the company, plant equipment and marketing strategies.

Honestly, comparing to other breweries in other countries I´ve been to (Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Czech Republic), this was the least interesting. However, I enjoyed a lot the tour and the atmosphere of the place. It felt more like visiting a medium-sized winery than a brewery. The restaurant offers great food, more good beer and an excellent historic experience.

We toured the brewery and were delighted. Well organised, friendly staff, lots of interesting information and so many delicious tastings. I don't normally drink beer but this was great. All my questions were answered - I learnt so much. Hint: the brewery is kept cool for the beer - we wore our coats and hats and suggest you might need... More

This was one of the worst beer factories I've visited but now I see that there IS an actual factory tour - we just didn't get to it due to our late in the day timing. You will see a ridiculous video that attempts to depict a humorous version of the legal battle between Anheiser Busch and Budvar. With Czech-accented... More
