The Czech Republic’s lagers are celebrated around the world and its citizens consume more beer per head than any other country. But thanks to a limited selection at most Prague pubs, visitors hoping to sample a range of Bohemian brews might have felt like they were missing something. The Prague Beer Museum changes that.
With the city’s bars and restaurants typically locked into deals with one of the country’s industrial-sized brewing concerns — most likely foreign-owned Plzensky Prazdroj, Staropramen or Krusovice — sampling the more obscure and more adventurous beers produced by smaller Czech brewers has previously been difficult.
In addition to pilsners and dark lagers, the ever-changing line-up of kegs ranges from Indian pale ales, English pale ales and wheat beers to exotic raspberry- and cherry-flavored concoctions. Five and ten-beer tasters are also available, along with a range of “beer cocktails,” bar food and other drinks. Because remember… It’s all about the beer.
