Includes extensive travel information — public transport, how to get there, where to stay and what to see — as well as cultural notes, history and feature articles on everything from Czech beer baths to the role of beer in Czech opera.

Describes the main Czech beer styles and Czech brewing terms and includes a searchable index of beers and breweries.

Includes separate listings of Czech breweries which offer lodgings (brewery hotels), as well as beer shops, publications, websites and organizations.

What Readers are Saying:

“The fascinating history, lore and cultural tidbits related to beer make the book interesting for just about anyone.”

“Brilliantly comprehensive.”

“My expectations were exceeded. Evan Rail writes with the same passion for detail and comprehensiveness as Steve Thomas and Tim Webb. There are bags of beautiful photographs littered throughout the book and the maps pinpoint every brewery and every featured pub. But best of all are the touches that go the extra mile: the lists of beer shops in Prague; beer hotels; and better still, Czech beer festivals. No lover of good beer or the Czech Republic should be without this guide.”

“I have used [this book] to plan several day trips from Prague, and think it would be a great resource for planning an all-beer vacation as well.”
