Sun in a Glass Microbrewery Festival
Unsurprisingly the home of Pilsner lager has a number of events throughout the year that celebrate the golden beverage. One of the oldest is Sun in a Glass, a festival of microbreweries that takes place at Purkmistr Brewery, where they pride themselves on using only Czech ingredients to brew their beer using traditional methods. Over 70 different microbreweries from the Czech Republic and abroad gather to showcase their beers over the course of the weekend. In addition there is food as well as competitions, music, dance, tours of the brewery and a souvenirs market.
