Beer



The Czechs have an old saying: “Kde se pivo vari, tam se dobre dari,” which means, “Where beer is brewed, it’s good there.” Beer is part of the Czech culture and has been for centuries, although more so now with steadily increasing

Beer-drinking tourists will appreciate the quality, variety and price of Czech beers. Some well-known brands include Pilsner Urquell and Budvar, but there are also microbrewery beers to try for true local flavor. Most Czech beer is now produced in non-Czech-owned firms.

You can drink other alcoholic beverages besides beer. The Czech variant of the Eastern European plum brandy is called “slivovice.” Czechs also produce a strong liquor called “borvicka,” and also lots of other tasty liqueurs, brandies and vodkas.

The Czech Republic’s minimum age for drinking alcoholic beverages is 18. Do not drink and drive – the Czech Republic has zero tolerance for it.

Czech beer has been brewed there since the 10th century. Recently the best known are Plzen ( Pilsner Urquell (Pilsner Urquell) and Budvar (Budwaiser), but there is dozen other really good beers (Kozel, Krusovice, Radegast, Smichov ...). The American Bud has its origins in the original Budvar which has been brewed for the last 300 years in Ceske Budejovice, Southern Bohemia. Beer experts say that the original Czech Budvar is better than the American copy. Check it out yourself while you are there.
