One of the best brewery tours I have ever attended. You can see the open fermentation and many more interesting typical Czech beer processes. Czerna Hora is one of my favorite Czech beers, even can find them in Shanghai now. In the meantime they should have the hotel completed. Whenever you are in Brunn a must visit!!!

This place have it all: Hotel, Restaurant, Bar, Bottle shop, Brewerie visits, wellness center... they even have Bowling alleys!
Hotel (http://www.hotel-sladovna.cz): A modern hotel built in an old malting facility. You stay either in the high-end 4 stars hotel or in the "penzion" for a hostel style accomodation. By the way, the soap provided in the showers is made with beer :-)
The restaurant serves classic czech food and you can, of course, taste their whole series of beers including some "kvasnicove" versions. If weather permits, you can linger on the adjacent covered terrasse, and if not, have refuge inside and stare in admiration at the hops-bud-shaped lamps hanging from the ceiling.
The brewery no just only make "pivo", they make their own "limo" which are soft drinks aromatized with hops. The "Grena" is amazing. The brewery also sells bottles of water they use in their beers.
In autumn, they hold a Beer and Music Festival called "Pivni Pout", right on the brewery’s land.
Well worth a visit.
