Beer Culture

The Czech Republic is famous for consuming the most beer per capita in the world. The first written mention of Czech beer brewing is from 993, but it is generally accepted that regional brewing traditions go back to the first century AD. This is the birthplace of Pilsner Urquel beer along with a variety of different beer styles – from dark, malty dopplebocks and porters to hoppy pale ales and unique amber brews which mix dark and pale styles. A few brewers have even gone experimental, using all kinds of spices, fruits and other non-traditional ingredients. The longstanding saying still stands true today: In Prague, beer is cheaper than bottled water.
