1. Prague: Czech Beer Tasting
The Czech Republic has the highest beer consumption per capita in the world and the people have the traditions to back it up. In 850, there is evidence that hops were being grown in the Czech lands. The first recorded brewing was in 990 AD, by Bohemian monks, at the Břevnov Monastery near Prague Castle.
