Rhymes with Geese.

I care about how these are pronounced about as much as i care about how "puerh" is pronounced. (none)

Likely #1, definitely not #3, assuming its a German name/noun. In German, I before E is always pronounced long 'E'. E before I is always pronounced long 'I.'

I believe Saaz is a German name for a Czech town named Žatec. The Czechs call the hops from this town "Žatecki".
Saaz would be pronanced "Sahz'', Žatec is pronanced "Zsatetz" ("Zs" like in "Zsa Zsa Gabor"), and Žatecki is pronounced "Zsatetzky", (again, "Zs" like in "Zsa Zsa Gabor").

Yeah, it's the same as here then. We have Ž, like the S in pleasure, Š, like SH, Č and Ć which are a hard and soft CH sound and Đ, like the G in George. And the C here is also like TS.

I have seen the Czech beer Krušovice here, for instance, and that is pronounced KrooShoVeetsEh with a rolled R.
