I want to make my first post about a type of beer which is very special to me. The Budvar Dark Lager.
Czech beer used to be plentiful in Cambridge up until about 5-6 years ago. Nowadays, you may find the odd Staropramen or Prava lingering around in pubs but these are now made by Coors and mass produced in the UK and naturally taste nothing like the real thing.
I’ve had to find these on Beer Hunter as you can’t get them in the UK. Unfortunately, as a result of having to import them, this has set me back £37 (Inc delivery) for 20 500ml bottles…So, £1.85 each.
I remember first having these in Prague on tap. They really are the best of both worlds with the smooth refreshingness of a lager/beer but with a deep bold flavour of an ale.
If any pub ends up selling these on tap I think I’d end up throwing my entire bank account at them, so please let me know if you stumble across these!
