First anniversary: Paper. Fifth anniversary: Wood. Fiftieth anniversary: Gold.
Five hundred and fifty-fifth: One very special lager.
Or at least that’s how it is for Pivovar Rakovník, a Czech brewery originally founded in 1454. To celebrate its 555th birthday next year, Rakovník is adding a “jubilee special” to its Bakalář line of beers. And though 2009 is still most of a month away, the new brew is already available at Pivní galerie.
