The love of beer is one of several characters that the Czechs share with the British. Czechs think that their beer is the best in the world. Those that don’t agree with them should come and taste it. Czech beer tends to be more full-bodied and more bitter than foreign brews and always arouses the desire for more. In Prague pubs, prices of lager beer range from 25 CZK – 70 CZK (0.90 GBP to 2.5 GBP) for half a litre. In the rest of the Czech Republic, beer is even cheaper.
Czech beer is not produced in such varieties as elsewhere, and there are just two kinds, light and dark. The most famous beers are Pilsener Urquell from Plzeň (Pilsen), Budvar from České Budějovice (Budweis) and Staropramen.
