The trip, day two

Breakfast at Karlový Vary. Fine, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Loket: Magic.

Marianské Lázně: Picturesque

Pilsen


The hotel, far from the centre, nasty from outside, but the rooms are almost luxury like.

Pivovar Purkmistr: St. Martin's Goose. Aaaaaahhhhhh. Dark Beer, etc. Aaaaaaahhhhh.

Plzeňský Prazdroj, the historical, Disney like part. Awesome.

Pivovar Groll. Dinner. The house beer. Lovely. Lovely. Lovelier.

Klub Malych Pivovaru. More beer. Really cool.

Na Zdraví!

PS: Were you expecting something else? I'm in Pilsen, man. Give me a break....

  1. Good to hear Purkmistr, Groll etc. are still up to scratch. I'm planning on visiting Plzeň tomorrow for the first time in quite a while. The main object of the excursion is the football, but obviously beer's on the agenda too... :)

  3. Sounds like the most enjoyable job ever, and like Iain I like hearing that Purkmistr still is a great place. Groll was not open when I was in Plzen in February, and I never visited Klub Malych Pivovaru.

    But the important question remains: Did you try Urquell? :-)

  4. Of course we did. The tour ends up in the old cellars and we had a couple of glasses of PU frm the wooden barrels. It was lovely, really.
