OK so here is the bottom line. I do not care for Anheuser-Busch Budweiser beer - not much taste. So, I was very intrigued to visit the true original Budweiser brewery named after the German version of the city name Czeske Budejovice. The town is 2 hours by car from Prague. Your hotel can assist in arranging a driver for you. The brewery tour takes an hour. It is very informative about the brewing and bottling process and gives you a nice behind the scenes look at what goes on. It was very fun to have a taste of the lager from an aging tank - unfiltered and unpasteurized. There is a nice little gift shop in the main entrance area. The only thing missing was a tasting room for sampling the portfolio of beers produced. Before you go, do a little research of the legal battle over the "Budweiser" brand. Once having visited the brewery, I made it a point to order a couple different "Budvar" beers at lunch and dinner. I like the Czech version. It has a taste and personality that I just don't find in the Anheuser-Busch version. To make a full day out of a visit to Czeske Budejovic, include a visit to Cesky Krumlov about 30 min away and walk around this Unesco World Heritage site.
