For the Beer Lovers – Czech Republic Edition

14 Apr

Did you know the on average adult in the Czech Republic drinks 80 gallons of beer a year? This is among the highest consumption in all of the world. Czech’s are also the creators of the famous Pilsner-style beer and this recipe dates back to the 1840’s. In the little research I’ve done, I’m realizing just how much they love their beer. In the city of Prague, beer prices range from $0.90-$2.95 for just under a pint (yes, that’s USD). I can get used to having to pay those prices!

This festival lasts for 17 days and the venue has the capacity to accommodate 10,000 people. There will also be chefs, butchers and bakers there offering food as well. When reading more detail on this festival, I learned that 200 boys and girls will be in Czech national costumes will be the servers. I bet it would be a lot of fun. You would just have to remember to drink a lot of water between tasting…that’s a lot of beer to try.

There’s a lot to learn about the history of beer in relation to the Czech Republic. If you’re interested in learning more about it, click here. If you’ve been to the Czech Republic or know of other great beer destinations/events, please leave a comment.

Thank you for reading!

    That sounds like one awesome festival. I’ve heard that Prague is a beautiful city too. The ultimate beer festival would have to be Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, which is pretty close to the Czech Republic.

      Definitely! I wish I was going to be in Germany in the fall. It’s on my bucket list for sure though.
