The World Famous Czech BeerCzech beer has been brewed there since the 10th century. Recently the best known are Plzen (Pilsner Urquell) and Budvar (Budwaiser), but there is dozen other really good beers (Kozel, Krusovice, Radegast, Smichov ...). The American Bud has its origins in the original Budvar which has been brewed for the last 300 years in Ceske Budejovice, Southern Bohemia. Beer experts say that the original Czech Budvar is better than the American copy. Check it out yourself while you are there :-) Half litter of beer is usually for 20-40 Kc ($1-2 :-))
