I've just had an idea, partly inspired by Ron Pattinson and his call to publishers, I've got several stories going around in my head:
- cider in the Czech Republic,
- a critical view of České Ejly,
- resurrected breweries. There must be about two dozen of them right now. It's a phenomenon you don't see in many other countries with a potential for series of interesting stories, maybe even a book,
- a series of in depth and very personal interviews with old Czech Master Brewers,
- Brno, which according to some voices, might be an even more interesting beer destination than Prague itself.
So, if you know of someone who might be interested in these stories, let me know, or tell them to contact me. Otherwise, I guess they will have to remain unwritten for the time being.
I would be interested in resurrected breweries. Brno, on the other hand, is not a beer destination, trust me.ReplyDelete
I was last in Brno a few years back. But there are a few Cerna Hora and Dalesice places, I recall.Delete
They may have some multi-tap pubs nowadays.
For what I've heard, it has changed a lot in the last couple of years. There are a number of new mult-tap pubs that by all accounts are really good and a large proportion of old-school pubs have totally done away with the big brands, and sell smaller ones like Poutník, Polička, Dalešice, etc.Delete
I Am Praha Biased. Though I have My Doubt,s about Brno, Too.ReplyDelete
Write the first article basically as an advert for the largest cider maker in the Czech Republic. Then sell it to them to pay for the rest of the articles.ReplyDelete
The third and fourth sound like the most interesting to me, personally. Maybe a pisshead's guide to Brno would be good too. Have you ever thought about crowd funding? You could put the project to vote or pick your two favorites and go for those.ReplyDelete
Crowdfunding is something that others have suggested. I guess I will have to have a look at that.Delete
I would like to know about brno pubs, I disagree with what some people say as it's a great place for beerReplyDelete
Anyone going to Brno, take a side trip to Olomouc also. A beautiful place. Like Prague without the tourists.ReplyDelete
I agree olomouc is a fantastic place with plenty of good pubsDelete
I haven't been to Brno since 2008. The more I read up about it, it sounds like it is now a good beer tourist destination.Delete
Great beer in a smaller, more mellow city than Prague.
What about cider? A disgusting beverage not worth mentioning.ReplyDelete
Could you tell me if the breweries in karlstejn and kutna hora have closed downReplyDelete
I don't think Karlštejn had a brewery, or at least not that I know of.Delete
Kutná Hora's was closed a few years ago. The brewery's restaurant is still working, though
Oh ok, I have a czech and slovak breweries app. and it still shows the karlstejn brewery. I couldn't find the jacma steakhouse pub, kopyto is now a pilsner urquell pub and merenda has closed downReplyDelete
