In addition, visitors can enjoy specialties from chefs of famous Prague restaurants "Svejk Restaurant","Kolkovna" or "Intercatering". Menu in each tent will be unique, but on the street in front of the tents you will be able to try roasted beef steak, provided especially for the festival by the popular gastronomic firm Reznictvi Libor Novak. Visitors of the festival will be served by 300 waiters in national costumes. For convenience, the beer festival will has its own currency - Beer Thaler (40 euros).
