A beer with friends. A centuries old rite in Prague, in The Czech Republic, and almost everywhere. And Pilsner Qrquell is the likely brew of choice. The beer has been brewed nearby since 1842 and is Czech Republic’s “national beer.” Beer drinking is very much a part of the social fabric in Prague and much of Europe. In fact, it is difficult to walk very far down most any street in the city and not pass a pub or two or more. Cheers.
