Czech Lager University is the world's premier course for learning everything about brewing traditional Czech Lager / Pilsner beer (from sourcing to pouring)!
It is an intense, certificated, hands on curriculum for passionate brewers that will cover everything lagering; from theory, to history, materials, technology, microbrewery layout (configuration related to process), hot side fermentation, cold side fermentation, packaging, troubleshooting off flavors, and even a tapster class specializing in utilizing a side pull for Czech lagers/pilsners.
Space is limited to just (4) brewers per English speaking Czech brewmaster with a total of 8 spaces available per event in to preserve and promote quality and communication with a 4:1 ratio.
Certification for attending the course is issued by Czech Brewmasters.
An additional Certification is issued for attending the Tapster class (which is included in the curriculum).
What better place to learn the art of brewing pilsner and pale lagers than from the very birthplace of the styles?!?
That being said, we even travel the city of Plzen (birth place of Pilsner beer) to visit Lukr faucets, tour the underground tunnels of the city that connect the 13 families that were originally bestowed brewing rights by the king, and then tour the brewery of Pilsner Urquell (the original pilsner) on the last day
We'll meet in the hotel lobby at 17:00 (5 PM).
Each brewer will introduce themselves, say where they are from, and let us know what they are wanting most out of the course.
After introductions and an inaugural toast, we'll head off to get acquainted to the city and its landmarks as to help ensure that guests have some point of recognition if they decide to explore the city on other nights throughout the stay.
We'll also be visiting several craft breweries for tastings and discussions relating to different beer styles being brewed in Prague.
