Czech Beer Still Tasty After NYT Treatment
We're not sure if it was good planning or dumb luck, but the New York Times Travel section managed to pick the hottest week of the year to publish their round-up of beer and breweries in the Czech Republic. Central European go-to man (and former Prague Post restaurant reviewer) Evan Rail toured the country and sampled the main breweries--and an artisinaal one as well--and recommends them heartily. Surprise! Czech beer is as delicious as you've heard. Don't let bad samples festering in your local deli case fool you.
We were a little disappointed, however that Rail visited the Krkonose mountains (in north-central Czech Republic, near the Polish border) only to try a special low-alcohol brew made originally made for the Novosad glassworkers in the town of Harrachov. For our money, the best beer in that part of the Czech Republic is called Krakonos (pronounced crack-oh-nosh). It's a little strong-tasting, but it has a damn cool name, and isn't that worth something?
