Beer Tasting and Beer Gardens

Beer is the elixir of the Czechs. They drink more beer per capita than anywhere else in the world: an average of 140 liters per person each year and beat the Germans who ‘only’ drink 107 liters. The Czechs drink their beer in a beer garden. Don’t start worrying about cold gardens in winter. ‘Garden’ means a place where you drink beer and this need not be outside. If you haven’t been on a beer tasting tour, you haven’t been in Prague!

How to Order Beer

The place where you drink pivo (beer) is a pivnice (beer garden). The usual glass size is half a litre or půllitr, but you can order male pivo (a small beer) which is three deciliters. And if half a litre is not enough, you ask for tuplak (a double) served in a one-litre tankard. Choose from svetle pivo (pilsner) or cerne pivo (dark beer). Without doubt, tocene pivo (draft beer) is best. Na zdravi! Cheers!
