Breznice is a small market town that one would not consider visiting if not for its stand out Herold brewery. It does have an impressive baroque castle but even this has an unpleasant air, as its last owners supported the Nazis during their occupation of the country during WWII. Still, it's an interesting stop and is linked to the onsite brewery back to the 1500's. The Herold brewery is most famous for their Herold Dark 13, one of Czech best dark beers with a malty coffeeish palate and a long dry finish. They also produce a rare for Czech hefeweizen and their Pale 12 is quite good too. Outside the brewery is a small outdoor service area that has the dark beer flowing on tap. It's unfortunate but their beers are not as prevalent in pubs in town as is warranted but with some effort, I found a place with the full range and good food too boot. It was just off the main square. Seek and ye shall find. ;)
Renowned as the oldest and perhaps prettiest brewery in the Czech Republic, Regent is the producer of four fine beers that any discriminating lover of brews will seek out. Established in 1379 in the town of Trebon, the brewery offers one hour tours with a reservation.
Though we hit this great little town in cold blustery weather, it was obvious on a nice day, it would be a photographers dream, much like Telc in Moravia. The Town Square is in the Renaissance style and in the offseason, nearly devoid of people, let alone tourists! It's not far from Ceske Budejovice but if driving and going to the Pivnice to try their beers, it might be worth bedding down for the night.
