Beers : More than a passion, a religion

How not to speak of the Czech Republic without mentioning beer?

The Czech Republic regards beer as a national sport, a religion. Thus, you will not be surprised to learn that this country is the largest consumer of beer in the world, with the Czech Republic 148.6 liters per person per year ... ..Austria, in second place arrives only one very honorable 107.8 liters per person per year.

Beers

The tradition of Czech beer goes back to the 10th century and the Czech Republic produces some of the best beers in the world! Brands like Pilsner Urquell and Budweiser Budvar are by their exceptional taste known worldwide.

The wineries, especially in South Moravia, produce an excellent range of wine such as Rieslings and Svatovavřinecké. Gourmet excursions are becoming more and more popular.

A large number of restaurants, inns and wine cellars are available to guests of any type of guests

Brewed in low fermentation, the famous Plzeň Pilsner is sold in Europe under the name Pilsen Urquell. She gave her name to a type of light blonde, the Pils.

Its big competitor, Budweiser, is made in České Budějovice. It is also the name of an American beer made by the largest brewery in the world by volume, Anheuser-Busch. Both companies were in conflict over the final assignment of the mark.

On the other hand, the Smíchov of Staropramen in Prague, the Strarobrno, the Regent of Třeboň, the Radegast of Ostrava or  the Velké Popovice. The latest and most fashionable phenomenon is Velvet, a red beer brewed in Prague. Its particularity: the foam slowly descends to the bottom of the glass, what is called here the "avalanche" effect. Let yourself be tempted by the Kozel, or the Gambrinus, the most common beers.

Not to mention all the beer from even more local breweries, including the Bernard Pivo, a name that appeals to the French.

Attention, the indication in degrees refers to the percentage of ferments. Obviously, the more the beer ferments, the higher its alcohol level. A beer of 5 ° of fermentation is equivalent to 3 ° of alcohol; 12 ° of fermentation correspond to 5 ° of alcohol. They are therefore weaker than German beers or Belgian trappists
