The Czechs call their beer tekutý chléb, liquid bread, or zivá voda, life-giving water. There is no doubt about it, amber-colored Pilsner Urquell from the city of Plzen is one of the world's best beers. Czech wine is almost as popular as beer, and available in a vinara or wine bar. Tucked away in a vaulted cellar, Monarch Wine Bar stocks wine from Moravia. If you are craving cheese fondue, Monarch is the only place in Prague for this Swiss speciality.
From the end of September to mid-October, bars and pubs serve burcak, the Czech version of Late night party goers will paint the town red in Bombay Bar, famous for cocktails or in Duende, the smokiest bar in Prague. Sample in Kozicka Bar a shot of Becherovka, a herbal bitter with an acquired taste. Another favorite is slivovice, plum brandy, and borovicka made from juniper berries.
Beer connoisseurs head straight for U Medvidku, a tiny micro-brewery right in the center of Prague. Their X-Beer 33 is a potent drink with an alcolhol percentage of 11.8%. If you don't mind busloads of tourists, join in with hundreds of tourists and listen to accordeon music while savoring Flek beer in U Fleku.
