Oh, look at what I did.  I have had beer out of Slovenia, actually,  I tooled around Ljubljana and environs for a week.  But not Slovakia.  Never been. 

And, you know, if it isn't America, it's all the same:  Heathen.

Urquell is passable because it's the big import (though it's 100 times better over there), but the other Czech beers, all of which are amazing there, are really crap here.  I found a weird out of the way deli that specializes in eastern european beer imports and, man, what a let down.

Bump!

I can't stop drinking Pilsner Urquell and I've always hated it out of the bottle in the States. Discuss.

Amazing the difference between being 80 miles from the brewery and 5000 miles, eh?

I'm going to seriously blog about beer later down the line once I've started taking some notes, but I've found my mecca. Prague is a beer drinker's paradise.

I'm on day two. It's hard. My solution is just to cancel all social engagements and play Empire: Total War all night.

I'm just not going to worry about it and check into rehab when I get stateside which, you know, may be never.

Do you use the Gentle Alarm app on your phone? It's ad-supported. For the last five days, I've woken up and turned it off and gotten an ad for a rehab clinic in DC.

Staropramen is the other Czech brand that's pretty ubiquitous in town. Not bad either.

I've been hanging on the light beers more than darks in Prague. The darker beers are sweeter which isn't really my taste.

I am very much looking forward to a beer blog. And some life in this sub-forum! You'd think, on a board of raging alcoholics, we'd talk more about it...

One of my cohort has been keeping notes on beers which inspired me to do the same. In a month that blog should write itself.

I'm anxious for the next regular installment. Are we at the "I'm Afraid of Americans" music video moment yet?
