Indifferent service in the Formaka/Hospoda; but beers and atmosphere were authentic and only locals were there. Quite cheap compared with the touriosty palces in the center of town. Did not try the food; but thye sausages being grilled over an open wood fire out front smelled wonderful. Best place to drink in Cesky.

I went on the tour. The tour guide was very good, even though he had to speak his third language (German). The beer isn’t anything special, but atmosphere was pretty cool. Cesky Krumlov is a great city to visit and the brewery is also worth the visit.

A historic large brewery building in the town at Cesky Krumlov. It’s nice inside but we sat in the courtyard. It had been an intensive and enjoyable couple of days of rafting on the Vltava and this place was were we signed off. The food was great and I was significantly hungry. The beer is to a good enough standard. It’s a great place to end up.

Good food, but a very tourists place. Anyway, if you have some time and you are nearby - go visit this brewery, there are a lot of places and a lot of Eggenberg beer, which is not really awesome, but always fresh.

We did not get to do a tour of the adjacent brewery, we just had a beer and a snack at the Formanka, where we were the only guests at 6 p.m. in the evening. Very high ceilings and a little dark, but cozy enough. Certainly a good place to try their beers on tap, among them a kvasnicový ležák, that are also incredibly cheap. Cannot say much about the quality of the coooked meals - our cheese and bread were fine though. We had some trouble accessing the place: starting in Latrán street, follow Pivovarská street to the end (Nové Město street only leads to a closed gate).

first of all, everything in the area s super cheap and great value. We had a private tour of the btewery, which unfortunately was not brewing at the time. Afterwards, complimentary beer at the brewery restaurant. Not so great food, but the eggenberg dark and light beer are really good, especially unfiltered. If you have a week in prague, definitely come to Cesky Krumlov and to the brewery!

This charming rustic and very old brewery has a small beer garden that contrasts greatly with the rest of the town where tourists are legion. Here, expect to find local workers that like to down a couple of pints after a hard day of work. The beer could not be fresher. While quite simple, 4-5 beers are offered, the surrounding air is fresh, the beer is bright and the spot is peaceful. A nice drinking experience and some of the pints I’ve drank the fastest in Czech Republic: a good sign I suppose. Despite speaking no English, I appreciated the barman coming to my table and gesturing me a "last call" sign so I can get a last beer as the sun slowly left the sky.

I drank the Dark Eggenberg after canoeing down the Vltava River. It was one of the best beers I have ever drank.

We stopped by for a beer in the afternoon. It was crowded and we didn’t stay for lunch, though the menu looked good. The kvasnicovy (yeast) lager was excellent. Friendly service, and that was before the manager spotted us reading the CAMRA Good Beer Guide to Prague & Czech Rep., came over to read the Eggenberg entry, and then gave us our beers for free!

Formanka: High ceilings, but nevertheless a cozy Hospoda with four, well kept, different brews on tap plus the average crappy czech food. Very cheap compared to the other quite touristy pubs in town. Worth a visit........
