First a bit on the beer culture of the Czech republic. Beer is regarded by the Czechs themselves as their "national drink", whether dark, light, mixed or wheat and there are over 470 different types of beer in the Czech lands. The very best beer types are the world-renowned light and dark lagers.
In all Czech restaurants, beer gardens and clubs quality beer is an essential part of the experience. The atmosphere of a typical Czech pub and the sense of a relaxed conversation among friends are also considered as essential for the beer consumption ‘ceremony’.
Now a little bit to guide you in your quest for the culture of beer-drinking in the Czech Republic:
Before making your way to a traditional Czech pub, read the following tips carefully:
Many breweries organise brewery tours along with a tasting session.
In the summer, both large and small breweries hold special beer festivals. In addition to the requisite tasting sessions, there are concerts and various competitions.
If you wish to take something home as a memento, try collecting Czech beer mats (the cardboard coasters where the freshly drawn mugs are placed). Each brewery makes beer mats with an original design.
