Three events in September

We are already in September (We are already in September?!?!?!). For those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer is gone and we are mentally getting ready for the cooler and shorter days to come.

Fortunately, that doesn't mean that we can't go to any more beer events.

Tomorrow, Sat. 13/9, from 1PM, you can attend the First Jihoměstské pivní slavnosti - Beer Festival Jizní Město (the paneláky jungle in South Prague). It is very far from the centre, but it is also very easy to get there, Metro C - Opatov, and then follow the music.

There will be 11 beers on tap, including the allegedly legendary Jihoměšťana 11° y Čajové pivo (tea beer, if that won't arouse your curiousity, nothing will).

And, how about a trip for Saturday 20/9? Good idea, isn't it? Better still if the trip is to Pilsen, where Pivovar Purkmistr is organising the first Slunce ve Skle Ber Festival. The lineup of breweries that will be there is simply impressive, click here to have a look at it. If you want to know how to get there, take a couple of minutes to read the post I wrote about my visit to this very nice pivovar and restaurant

To close the month Zlý Časy is organising their third theme mini festival. This one is not at the weekend, it starts on Monday 29/9 and will last for as long as it will take people to drink the beers in question. The excuse is the official end to their summer season and the lineup is almost as impressive as the one at Purkmistr:
- Žamberk
- Dobruška
- Anteňák from Hrádec Králove
- Miletín
- Vrchlabí
- Harrachov
- Vendelín
- Bělec
For those on the know, it is enough to make mouths water, and it should also be for those who don't know the above names. Several of this craft breweries have never been in Prague and some of their beers are simply wonderful!

And if that wasn't enough, there are also a couple of bottlers in the bill:
- Nová Paka
- Rohozec
- Trutnov
- Svijany
- Konrad
- Klášter

Hope you'll enjoy at least one of them.

Na Zdraví!

  3. Not going to make it tomorrow - already booked up. The Zly Casy event sounds interesting - espcially as it is just round teh corner from where I work.
