Information for visitors

The Beer harvest, or International Festival of the Golden Brew in the historic centre of Nový Jičín has been organised regularly sine 2013. The main purpose of this festival is presentation of micro-breweries from our region and also from abroad. Visitors can expect over twenty-five micro-breweries, the experienced brewmasters of which have prepared over one hundred types of delicious beer and beer specialities. The festival includes musical performances of various genres and a varied accompanying programme for all age categories. The festival is also ecological. Ecological refundable cups will be provided instead of classic plastic cups. Entry to the event is free of charge.

Moderators: Petra Dorazilová & Honza Václavik

You can also monitor the event on our Facebook page.

On the day of the Beer Festival the Visitor’s centre will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. (TIC, exhibition).

WC

Throughout the event there will be a sufficient number of WC facilities available, which will be regularly cleaned. The public “porcelain” toilets can be found on Úzká Street (between Žerotín Chateau and the Bikemania Shop), or you will be able to use the portable WC facilities on Na Valech street (car park by the marketplace) and by the public toilets on Úzká Street.

WASHING TROUGHS

A washing trough with utility water, intended for washing the beer mugs you can purchase at the refund tent, will be available on the square.

WASTEBASKETS AND BINS

Although we are trying to reduce waste to a minimum using beer glasses and refundable cups, we cannot eliminate it completely. This is why a sufficient number of wastebaskets and also bins for sorted waste will be available within the complex. We ask visitors to keep the area tidy in their own interest and to help reduce the festival’s ecological footprint.
