    Having a glass of Barefoot Chardonnay. For a five dollar bottle it's surprisingly smooth with good flavor.

    I had a little bit of burčák. The wikipedia says it is Federweisser in English.

    is is now season for it, because the wine grapes were harvested, pressed and the must is starting to ferment

    ^^ Your part of the world is quite good for wine, and I have had a couple of glasses of domácí burčák in my time, near Mikulov, lovely town!

    Currently enjoying a bottle or two of Staropramen

    I was born at Valtice - one of the wine making hubs

    as one Moravian joke goes: there are 3 kinds of wine - good, bad and for the Praguers

    Nice chateau at Valtice, although on the surface maybe Lednice is the prettier of the two? A bit further from your stomping ground, I always thought Znojmo was an attractive town too.

    But to think you lot would send only your worst wine (kočičí moč?) to Prague upsets me deeply. I will cry into my Staropramen this evening and curse the Moravians, every one!

    I know all of these towns very well - Valtice, Lednice, Mikulov and also Znojmo (I studied a German gymnasium there - a project by the Austrian government to set up schools where the lecturing is done in German). Valtice and Lednice became too touristy lately, so much that I try to avoid them, at least during summer, and I agree that the Lednice chateau is more spectacular, so if I had to chose to visit just one, it would be Lednice. Mikulov is still nice. And Znojmo is a great city, still largely undiscovered by tourists. (hopefully it stays that way)

    I haven't had any Staropramen for years, though it is good. I drink mostly Budweiser (the Czech one, not the American one) and Gambrinus and Kozel. But the best are the small local mini-breweries, which make their own beer. You can find many of these in Czech Republic, or in Austria or Germany. And many Czech pubs offer also the Irish Guinness

    The Staropramen brewery was quite close to where I lived in Prague, so I retain some affection for it; besides, it's one of the easiest to get here in the UK. Not exactly a microbrewery, though!

    Back then, the one that was supposedly the best beer - pivo roku atd atd - was your Radegast. Haven't drunk it in years, sadly. Do they still do the dark version of Velkopopovicke Kozel? That was nice! And I always preferred Gambrinus over Urquell! The worst by far was the awful stuff they brewed in Benešov, I'd be surprised if they're still in business. Nasty aftertaste.

    Apparently the story goes that there was some chap called Anheuser or Busch who worked at the brewery in České Budějovice, but was sacked for gross incompetence, had to emigrate to America, where he started his own brewery. Apocryphal, I am sure, but a good story to want to believe!

    Anyway, nádraží, as the Americans in Prague say!

    Yes, Kozel still makes the dark version, I mostly drink the 11° Kozel. The worst beer in Czech Republic I had comes probably from Northern Bohemia, from Trutnov in the Giant Mountains (the beer is called Krakonoš), and the best one comes from the Želiv Monastery
    https://www.zeliv.eu/en/
    they make it according to the traditional centuries old monk recipes and add various herbs to the beer. Really good.

    Cry into my Staropramen!!!!! Thus rendering it Staropramen Lite? Never! I've sipped on local draught in literally dozens of countries in the world and I think Ležák on tap may be the world's best lager! Couldn't get enough of it when I was in Prague!!!!
