Prague Culture Shock - Beer
A 12-part guide to the subtle - and not-so-subtle - nuances that make the Czech capital a more memorable experience
The beer in Prague is cheap and wonderful, and it gets cheaper the farther away from the center you go. For Pilsner Urquell, the country's most renowned beer, expect to pay 30-40 CZK in the center and 20-30 CZK outside of it.
In restaurants, it's common for the server to mark the number of beers you've had on a small piece of paper on the table. This is both good and bad; my table's tab usually looks like it came from a guy serving a life prison sentence at the Château d'If.
It's also not uncommon to see beer sold everywhere, including children's play parks, random stands throughout the city, cafés, bookstores, and the zoo. I saw a dark-suited businessman downing a velké pivo (large beer) at 8:30 in the morning before he went into work.
See Ice Cold: Beer vs. People for a more in-depth look at Czech beer culture.
