Pilsner Urquell

One of many Old-Style posters availableOn the way home from Çeské Budêjovice, we had a train stopover in Plzen, Czech Republic, so we stuffed our bags in a locker in the train station and sprinted out into the Czech sunshine to get to the Pilsner Urquell brewery, just a short walk (trot? sprint?) from the train station. This Bohemian brew is imported to the States, but the stuff in the bottle bears no resemblance whatsoever to the stuff sold at the brewery.

Plzen is the ancestral home of all Pilsner beers; that clear, light, slightly bitter brew that Americans have invented the cone-shaped glass for - HOWEVER - no cone-shaped glasses to be seen in Plzen!

See the Budvar page for a long description of our beer pilgrimage to the Czech Republic.
