Pivni Galerie for Beer Tasting

Pivni Galerie is a shop in Prague that sells only beer. Cases full of beer line the walls. Beer to the Czechs is not just a drink; it’s their mainstay, it’s their manna it’s their ambrosia. Czechs refer to their beer as ‘liquid food’. Judging from the many beer halls and beer gardens and beer pubs they cannot live without their ‘pivo’, the Czech word for beer. They do their best and are the highest beer consumers per capita in the world.

Pilsner Urquell and Gambrinus

Visitors to Prague have no problem in finding places where to buy the frothy liquid gold. There seems to be a beer hall at every corner and in every street. The beer menu usually features two or three brands of beer, very popular are Pilsner Urquell and Gambrinus. But, there are many more! In fact, many Czech towns have their own brewery and in Prague there are many micro-breweries with their own specific beer.

As it is impossible to go to all beer pubs and taste their beer, simply go to Pivni Galerie. Here you will find a selection of 180 different types of light, dark and specialty beers. Not only Czech beer, although connoisseurs say they are the best, Pivni Galerie also stocks Belgian and German beer. What’s more, this shop has a tasting corner, a mini beer hall, where you can sit down, relax and enjoy their beer from the tap.
