The Good Beer Guide Prague 
& the Czech Republic
Evan Rail

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is proud to release The Good Beer Guide Prague and the Czech Republic, an independent guide to more than 100 Czech breweries, 450 different beers, and over 100 great places to try them.

In addition to complete tasting notes, beer history and trivia, the book includes a year-long Czech Beer Calendar, detailing 60 beer festivals, beer competitions and other beer events taking place around the country.

Separate indices list every Czech beer by name and brewer and include the country’s “brewery hotels” which offer travelers lodging as well as great brews.

Beers and breweries are arranged by kraj (region), making it easy to plan a trip to the brewpubs of Moravskoslezský kraj, for example, or find a great beer destination close to wherever you’re traveling — from Cheb to Frýdek-Místek, from Liberec to Dalešice.

The book includes detailed instructions on how to get there for every pub, brewery and brewpub. A description of all Czech beer styles will help readers distinguish kvasnicové pivo from nefiltrované, and polotmavé from mere řezané.

Author Evan Rail is a frequent contributor to the New York Times Travel section, where he writes often about food and drink. He spent most of 2006 personally visiting every brewery and brewpub in the country. He claims he even remembers some of it.

In Prague, The Good Beer Guide Prague and the Czech Republic is available from Anagram, the Globe and Shakespeare and Sons bookshops, or via CAMRA at or
