Prague is famed for its beers and three particular types, Budvar, Staropramen and Pilsner Urquell. However, the growth of micro-breweries is giving visitors more choice at the bar, which is probably why Czech people drink more beer per capita than in any other country.
The city welcomes throngs of tourists each year, eager to witness the varied but romantic architecture and appreciate it over a pint or two.
Quality over Quantity
However, whilst these three beverages retain popularity amongst many visitors, the range of different drinks provided by the micro-breweries is encouraging people to be adventurous and try new drinks.
The up-coming Czech Beer Festival, which begins on May 12 and runs until 28 May, is being held in Prague and will give visitors the ideal opportunity to discover some of these different flavours.
In fact this is one of the key themes at the event. Over the past few years it has become a celebration of quality over quantity, quite the reversal from past Czech principles.
It is thought there will be over 80 different varieties of beer available, which should give most visitors ample reason to spend a good few hours there. All beers will be from Czech breweries, which are thought to number 36 at this year’s festival.
