The Radegast brewery will open its gates on Saturday

28.4.2010 Radegast

“Radegast is one of few breweries in Europe which allows its visitors to see the real process of how the beer is made. There aren’t many places where you can look over the shoulder of professional beer makers, just like you do at our brewery,” said manager of the Radegast brewery, Ivo Kaňák, explaining the tour’s popularity.

Groups will be driven to the brewery on Saturday, May 1, every half an hour. The first tour, which will take about 90 minutes, will start at 8 am and the last one will be at 4 pm. 

“The last stop of the tour will be the lookout restaurant above the brewery. A beautiful view of the panorama of Beskydy with a glass of perfectly chilled Radegast beer is the best way to end the tour,” added Ivo Kaňák

This year marks Radegast’s  thirteenth open door day, and the tour is usually very popular. That is why it is best to reserve a specific time for a tour in advance at 558 602 566 or via email at .

Entry into the brewery on May 1st is free of charge.
