The Czech Republic has a long and proud history of beer brewing, dating back to the early Middle Ages. The first recorded mention of beer brewing in the Czech lands dates to 993 AD, when Bohemian Prince Boleslaus II ordered that breweries be built in Prague and other cities. During the medieval period, monasteries played a major role in the production of this drink, and many of the country’s traditional beer styles originated in monastery breweries.

Today, the Czech Republic is home to a large number of breweries, ranging from small family-run operations to large international brands. Czech beer is known for its clean, crisp flavor and high-quality ingredients, and it remains hugely popular both inside the country and around the world.
