Favorite Czech Beer - Light

Postby My Czech Republic » 07-Sep-05 19:39

Vote for your favorite Czech light beer! We have 14 solid Bohemians against 6 strong Moravian contenders (the town in which each beer is produced is in parentheses). If you don't see your favorite on the list above, choose "Other" and post it in this forum.

Na zdraví!

my favorite beer is Svijany. But since that is not one of the "big brands" i'd say Kozel(from Plzen) or Krusovice

If you mean "Velkopopovický kozel" it's from Velké Popovice, not from Plzeň. BTW I attended the basic school in Velké Popovice :)

Personally I prefer Gambrinus at 10 degrees - Plzensky Prazdroj is too watery or something (but fine at 12 degrees). I find it strange that Gambrinus is so widespread in CR, but impossible to find in Ireland, even though we have Plzensky Prazdroj, Cesky Budejovicky, Staropramen, Krusovice and a few other brands in the shops here. (also at about 5 times the Czech price)

Hi! Fellow beer drinkers! :D

I'm an American from Michigan w/ Bohemian ancestory. This is my first post. So I was excited to see a vote for your favorite Czech beer soon after joining :D ! Even though I haven't had much exposure to Czech food or beverages, I have tried Rebel beer. There's a Polish restuarant near me in a small town. It's only open in the Summer :cry: . My family goes there at least once a year. They have a beer or 2,3 from each country around the world :lol: ! Last time I went I figured since I'm part Bohemian I should try beer from that part of the World. There was 2 options. I tried Rebel :lol: . I like it! It had a unique bubbly and tangy flavor, oddly strong and light at the same time. I try to stay away from strong beers becuase they can be very bitter. Is this an American thing or are other strong beers bitter. Rebel was not bitter at all :lol: ! I like it!

We get Velkopopovicky Kozel here in London, but the label says it is brewed in Plzen. Maybe it is the export version?

Kozel is really brewed in Velké Popovice (and in Slovakia, Hungaria and Russia) but this brewery is a part of company 'Plzeňský Prazdroj a.s.' That means Kozel and Plzeň share distribution.

Thanks for clearing that up for me, wer.
It was confusing, because I always thought it was brewed in Velke Popovice.
