Junior team Canada ball hockey training camp came to an end with wins for both teams in exhibition games. That afternoon we did the brewery tour of Pilsner Urquell Brewery and had dinner at Na Splice brewery restaurant. The tour was informative, but easily could have been half the length that it was (about 90 minutes). We seemed to spend quite a bit of time looking at the new packing plant (they are quite proud of the $40 million investment) even though it wasn't even going! The cellar deep underground was wonderful and cool (like bring a sweater, 5*C) with 9km of underground roads.
The team dinner at Na Splice on the brewery grounds was a bit of a disappointment....lots and lots of gravy on everything, but I'm told this is traditional.
I'd recommend the tour, and a beer after of course, but I'd head to the village square for supper!
