The Beerbike. It’s a unique contraption that has proven to be a popular tourist attraction in cities like Munich and Amsterdam.
Aboard the bike, which resembles a short bar that can seat sixteen patrons, riders drink and pedal as a (sober) driver and guide takes them around the city.
Beer and cycling? It’s no surprise that the bike has now entered the Czech market.
In Prague, the Beerbike comes with a sober driver/tour guide and a 30L keg of Pilsner, and can be booked at a rate of 350€ for two hours, and 100€ each additional hour.
That might seem like a lot, but for a group of ten tourists it would work out to 35€ a head for six pints and two-hour bike tour of Prague.
For an extra 50€, patrons can employ a “pretty waitress” for the ride, an offer that is emphasized no less than four times on the Beerbike homepage.
More information about the Prague Beerbike can be found at its official website.
In Brno, another version of the beerbike has found a permanent home at Hostinec U Daana, where patrons can enjoy a pint on the vehicle while it’s not in operation.
More information about the Brno version can be found through its Facebook page; according to this iDnes.cz article, the bike is currently available for private events, but owner Marek Fišer hints at regular rides in the future.
While the Prague bike boasts a slick white design, this one is a rebranded incarnation of a Dutch beerbike.
Naturally, the Brno variation serves up Starbrno in lieu of Pilsner.
