When a town and a beer have the same name, you know the beer must be something special.

With a picturesque Old Town Square, a great Gothic cathedral, a regal Renaissance Town Hall, an underground city, and a brewing museum, there is more than enough to keep you busy for a day or two. Add to this, its 700-year-old namesake brewery, and you have a town well worth a visit for any visitor to the Czech Republic, and a true must see for any lover of world-class beers.
