Sun in a Glass
Traditionally, the popular brewery festival “The Sun in a Glass” is held every September in Pilsen, and it’s a place where you can try some non-standard beer specialities, both from Bohemia and foreign countries alike. Quite a few breweries come together here and offer taste tests of their best beers, and all these festivities take place in the cosy atmosphere provided by the courtyard of Pilsen’s Purkmistr Brewery. Here you can also try the different beers that come in 0.1 L bottles. If you’re feeling thirsty, this is definitely the right place for you.
How to get to the Sun in a Glass festival
The Purkmistr brewery courtyard is situated on the rural village square in Pilsen’s Černice neighbourhood. When travelling here from the centre of the city, we recommend taking public transportation, i.e. tram no. 1 (Slovany direction), then, at the last stop, transferring to tram no. 13 (exit at tram stop Generála Lišky). At the Slovany stop, you’ll also find a special festival bus waiting to regularly take visitors to the event.
