Bohemian-style brewskies

Bohemia has had an important role in the beer brewing community since the beginning of brewing. The Urquell Brewery in Pilsen dates back to 1292, with the introduction of Pilsener beers and produces the Pilsner Urquell brand that is famous around the World. The thumbnail photomicrographs below provide links to the Czech Republic beers in our collection.


Pilsener Urquell - This light beer is often viewed as the standard by which all Pilsner beers are judged, having a clean, crisp taste, brewed using premium hoppings and malts.

Staropramen - This Czech lager has a slight bitterness and malty flavor, with a bittering hops aftertaste, and is reminiscent of burnt hop flowers.
