Czech Beer
« on: August 04, 2007, 12:35:23 PM »
So... Czech beer that's not from the tap in the Czech Republic is just the corpse of a beer in a glass coffin.

Those of us who have been to the Czech republic to prove just that theory -- discuss!

It's true.  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.

Have you been to the Brewer's Art yet?  It's about 40 minutes away, in Baltimore, and was fantastic last I checked.

Hi Americans trying to recreate Belgian beer...which is not all that anyway.

I'm due to meet Pagan Kennedy in Bmore on the 12th.  Might make that the meeting place...

I was there in 2001.  Very hip.  Bar in basement, lounge upstairs, I suppose there's a dining room somewhere upstairs.

yeah.  I never saw it but I'm pretty sure it's there.

Dude it's a big happening bar.  the fact that they have seating and food that I've heard is good was a surprise to me at the time.  I can understand how it'd be unsurprising to you, not having gotten wasted in the basement.

I don't remember the restrooms.

Hope you didn't spend all your booze budget in the CR on Pivo per se...most tourists make it a point to indulge in a fiery Absinthe session or two while in the former CzechoSlovakia.

I confess to being a tourist, then.  My favorite was the absinthe cannabis.

Did you also binge on the dark Czech beer that makes Guinness taste like tap water? Actually the best dark beer in the world comes from Slovakia.

I did have some of that!  Truly lovely.  I have not had any beer out of Slovenia, though... I'll have to put that on the ever-growing list.
