"Did you know that the Czech..." Beer! Tip by hslowe

Beer!, Prague: 33 reviews and 35 photos


Did you know that the Czech Republic has the <b>highest beer consumption per capita</b> in the world? Yep, it's something like 56 gallons per person per year. There is a reason for that...the beer is excellent. Drink it on the street in the morning, get it from a vending machine at the airport, stop into your local pub, do whatever you have to do, but DRINK CZECH BEER! While doing so, remember that the <b> Czech Beer Firsts</b> are many and varied.

*First in per capita beer consumption

*First Beer Museum in the world

*First beer brewing textbook

*First Pilsener

*First Budweiser (Americans stole the Budvar name and put it on our ***ty beer. Czechs don't like this, understandably.)

*First president to have written an absurdist play based on his experiences working in a Czech beer brewery in 1974
