When you dig into the
mysteries of family history, especially in a country like the
Czech Republic, invariably the common denominator that links the
people together is their love for their home brewed beers.
Two brands in
particular stand out from the crowd. Perhaps the best one is
Pilsner Urquell (the name coined the world famous Pilsner tag), in
Czech Plzeňsky Prazdroj. This was the first
bottom-fermented beer and was produced in 1842 in the city of Plzeň.
The other big brewing
town is České Budějovice, home to the one and only
original Budvar beer. There are many more excellent brews to
be had throughout the Czech Republic. For instance, a
particular favourite of mine is Branik beer. I could go on
and on talking about beers - I think its time I popped across to
my fridge and pulled out a Plzeň beer.........
