Parallel

Český Pivní Festival 2009 kicks off this friday and the beer list is very, very interesting (to see it go to this page and click on the logos). I can't think of a better excuse to make there, but...

- What if I can't be bothered with going to Letňany?
- What if I don't want to be "forced" to drink the beers only in half litre measures, specially the stronger ones?
- What if I want a still wider range of craft beers?

The answer to all these questions can be found at Zlý Časy.

As I said the other day, this hospoda in Nusle has great ambitions and, paralel to the festival in Letňany, they have decided to organise their own festival that will also take place between May 22 and 31. The difference here is that only beers from 30 micros from all over the country will be draught from 11 taps. The beers will change as the barrels empty, which gives the perfect reason to go more than once.

The list of pivovary for Třicet mini během deseti dní (30 micros in 10 days) is the following:

- Avar Hlučín
- Slezan
- Qásek Ostrava
- Zabřeh Ostrava
- Hukvaldy
- Kozlovice
- Kopřivnice
- Rambousek
- Medlešice
- Bělěč Car
- Zamecký Pivovar Chše
- Veklý Ribník (Střibro)
- Železna Ruda
- Dobřany
- Purkmistr
- Lotr
- Joe's Garage
- Pivovarský Dvůr Chýně
- Pivovarský Dvůr Dražič Lipan
- Berounský Medvěd
- Zvíkov
- Broumy
- Valášek Vsetín
- Vyšší Brod
- Svatý Jan
- Strahov
- Novoměstský pivovar
- Moritz Olomouc
- Svatovaclavský Pivovar Olomouc
- U Krále Jčminka Prostějov
- Lipník nad Bečvou
- Žamberský Kanec
- Kocour Varsdorf
- Kozlíček Horní Dubenky
- Rampušak Drouška
- Tambor Dvůr Králové
- Rychnov nad Kněžnou
- Excelent Rýmařov

If some of those names sound a bit exotic, they are. Several of the breweries have never been seen in Prague. This festival looks like a "ticksters" paradise.

  1. Good thinking on the part of Zly Casy - as usual! Will have to pop down a few times next week.

  2. Good job I ticked off Slezan, Zabreh and Qasek a couple of weeks ago, and can get straight on to the ones I've not actually heard off.
    This looks like a good day-trip for June as well. Similar line-up to Slunce ve skle in some respects, but none the worse for it: http://www.dysinskepivni.cz/

  4. The've showed up at ZČ a couple of times already and they did travel quite well. I was very impressed by the first time I had them. The second time, though, they weren't in tip top shape.
    Let's see how they behave here.

  7. Hard to say, really. I haven't been able to get the "tapping schedule", so I guess it will be a matter of showing up and see what's on the list that day. There are some pretty solid breweries there, which you might know already.
    Among the ones you might not know, I would recommend Tambor, lovely session beer that was, Rymařov (nothing out of this world, but quite nice beer just the same) and of course, Velký Ribník, that is not Stříbro as I put up there, but Hastrman, and they do have an amazing wheat beer. Or you can do what I will do, start with the ones I don't know....
