Beer and Wine in Prague

When in Prague, you need only one word: pivo – beer or maybe a second as well: pivnice – beer garden or beer pub. Because drinking beer is what Czechs like best, or so it seems. Pilsner Urquell is the king of beers, but Radegast, Staropramen and Gambrinus are equally good.

Although less famous than beer, Czech wine is popular. Wine bars, vinara in Czech, are often tucked away in vaulted cellars and stock wine from Moravia, a wine growing region in the Czech Republic. From the end of August to early October, bars and pubs serve burcak the Czech answer to Beaujolais Nouveau. Beer connoisseurs head straight to one of the micro-breweries in the centre of Prague for beer tasting sessions.
