Tweet Without further ado, here you have what I've liked the most during this year that is almost gone.
Domestic beer, draught: Únětická 12º, I was going to pick Chýně's magnetic Stout, a fantastic brew, no doubt, but Únětice's is not only great, but can also be drunk in more and more places in Prague and around.
Honorable mentions: Besides the aforementioned Stout, Polotmavá 13º from Pivovar Antoš.
Domestic beer, bottle: Primátor Stout.
Honorable mentions: Eggenberg Nakouření Švíhák, Janáček Kounic.
Foreign beer, draught: Mahr's Brau Ungespundet Kellerbier (at the brewery's taproom).
Honorable mentions: Neder Annafestbier, Schlenkerla Märzen (at the brewery's taproom).
Foreign beer, bottled: Pretty difficult here, but, Pliny the Elder (thanks Brian), one of those few beers that are better than their fame.
Honorable mentions: N'ice Chouffe, DeMolen Hel & Verdoemenis, Kraus Hell Lager
Pivovar: Únětický Pivovar. Not only they are making excellent beers, but they are also doing a great job with the most important thing any brewery has to do, sell their stuff, the sign of Únětický Pivovar can be found in God knows how many places already.
Honorable mentions: Pivovar Vyškov (they came back from death and now are making a pretty nice IPA and a lovely světlý ležák), Rukodělný Pivovárek Třebonice.
Hospoda (that is not Zlý Časy): Zubatý Pes
Honorable mentions: U Vodoucha, U Slovanské Lípy
Magazine: Pivo, Bier & Ale
Book: "Prague: A Pisshead's Pub Guide" (don't tell me you were expecting something else)
Blog in English: Boak&Bailey
Blog in Spanish: 2d2dspuma, por favor
I don't know about you, but 2011 has been the best year since I started with this blog, in many ways. Publishing my book has brought me enormous satisfaction and I was finally able to take a least a short holiday, which I greatly enjoyed. I hope 2012 will be along the same lines.
Anyway, have a nice Christmas, all of you!
