• New pub in Prague celebrates the country's beer tradition

    2010-10-22

    The Czech Republic is known for its light lagers and is often credited as being the birthplace of pilsner, yet many of its pubs and restaurants offer a limited and sometimes disappointing selection of the country's brews.

    The Californian entrepreneur Se Padilla hoped to remedy this when he recently opened the Prague Beer Museum close to the center of the city, which offers 30 taps of Czech craft beers, the New York Times reports.

    Many of the city's pubs and restaurants have contracts with the county's mass-producing brewers, such as Staropramen and Krusovice, which had previously made it difficult to experience variety for visitors. Padilla's pub now offers the city's largest selection of Czech craft beers on draft.

    The selection isn't limited to light lagers and pilsners, either, and includes everything from Indian pale ales to wheat beers to flavored brews, all of which can be accompanied by bar food.

    "This country makes great, great beer - the concept is to serve it," Padilla said of his enterprise.
