Hey Alan and everyone!Fantastic. If you know anything about me you know I love a story that has a photo with this caption: "The brewery grounds include a beer garden, hall and bowling alley." Sounds like the making of a story on the Czech experience for the Pub Game Project. Also, if you know anything about me, I have invited Evan to send any stories he may have from Prague as posts for A Good Beer Blog. A Central European perspective would be a great addition...as would a West Coast USA one...and an Aussie...and where did that Argentinian guy who was nosing around go anywhere.
I really enjoy the Good Beer Blog! It's a fantastic source of information about what's brewing in the world. I live in the Czech Republic, which is (ahem!) a pretty decent place for beer, too. I wanted to let you know (and maybe your readers) that I just wrote an article about Czech "special," a category of strong beers roughly akin to German Bocks. If this article would be of interest to your readers, please feel free to let them know.
In the future, I'll be writing more articles about Czech beer as we get closer to the publication of my book, Good Beer Guide: Prague and the Czech Republic which is forthcoming in May from CAMRA in England. Keep up the good work with GBB, and all best wishes from Prague!
Anyway, I trust you all have your pre-orders in for CAMRA's Good Beer Guide: Prague and the Czech Republic. That sounds like a dandy addition to the library. Amazon.co.uk is already selling pre-orders but not CAMRA.
Update: Evan even sent some pictures through including the cover mock up. These are all clickable thumbnails. Click them. You know you want to:
