A postcard from Spain

I’m spending a few days in Spain attending some not very pleasant family business, but I thought I drop a few lines about something typical of the beer, or rather, bar culture of the region I am right now, tapas. There are a few places in Prague that call themselves ‘Tapas Bar’. They are all… Keep Reading

Czech Beer Festival

Sixth-annual beer fest returns for 17 days of suds in the sun For those who like beer – and I mean really, really like it, in both quality and quantity – the Czech Beer Festival is one of the year’s highlights, not only for those in Prague. The 17-day event, running this year from Thursday,… Keep Reading

The advantage of smaller brands

Last week, Únětický Pivovar invited me, together with a few journalists, to the rather informal presentation of their Masopustní Speciál, a very nice 11º černé pivo. It was a great day (any day spent at a brewery is great) with good food, wonderful beer and the company of friends and really cool people. In order… Keep Reading

When a pub won’t do

Beer, any beer, even mediocre ones, will always taste better at a good pub. A pub that not only knows how to look after those beers, but also has that extra thing that invites you to stay at least a pint longer than you had planned, even if you are alone. There are times, however,… Keep Reading

Tag Teaming Pivovar Victor

Back in early 2009 Hotel Victor made many a local beer lover happy. It was a rarity back then, a pub that sold only beers from one microbrewery, and no other than Chýně. It was a nice place, but along the way something happened, a change in ownership, perhaps, and it lost some of the… Keep Reading

Pragmatism

A series of misfortunate events resulted in my not being to get my weekly case before the weekend, and I ran out of beer. Can you believe that? It really happened, I ran out of beer! Well, not quite, there were still some bottles in my “cellar”, but they all seemed to be of the… Keep Reading

3 New Spots: U Krkouna, U Bohouše, Krkonošská Hospůdka

There was a time, long ago, when having Pilsner Urquell on tap was the safest bet for a new pub/bar/café in Prague. Not anymore, it seems. A few weeks ago I told you about that little place in Malá Strana that sold Žatec, and the chat I had with the owner. I had a very… Keep Reading

Bus + few beers + bus = great day

Prague boasts a grand total of 13 commercial micro breweries, and there are more to come. Depending on your endurance, it could take you at least a couple of days to visit them all, and by the time you are done, you will have covered a sizable portion of the Geography of the Czech capital.… Keep Reading

A couple of disconnected thoughts

I was going to write about something else today, something you would have surely loved, but you’ll have to wait, as what I saw and experienced during a short pub crawl the other day got me thinking about a couple of things. It all started at Valašská Pivnice, a relatively new place in Hradčany. I… Keep Reading
