Max, he of the Pivni Filosof, sent me a pdf of this book today. You can find it at Lulu. I have to qualify my comments right away to say that I have not been to Prague. All I know, in fact, is what I learned from Evan Rail and his CAMRA guide. So, bear with me.
This is a guide to pub crawls. There is a disclaimer up front that this is not a politically correct guide so don't expect the gentile sort of suggestions you will see in that Edinburgh pub walk guide I reviewed a bit back. There is, however, nothing wrong with that. It's a handy book. It's got a very helpful key phrase section and an insightful tavern manners section. Don't tip the staff, don't move chairs and gentlemen go in first - to make sure it's safe.
Crawls are described with pencil scrawls, text and lots of beer porn - some of which I recognize from the Christmas photo contest. Glowing glass and amber brew aplenty. The tone is chatty, rude and informative - and it is riddled with Max's own anecdotes and preferences and voice.
Did you see it? No? Pay attention. Behind the trees, a bit to your left and up. Can't see it? Go back a bit to where the tram turns. Now look again. That chimney. Looks familiar, doesn't it? Actually it isn't a chimney, but the air intake for a malt storage. Every industrial brewer has one here....
It goes on. This beer is to be avoided, that bar is a shit hole. And that whole district is a shit hole. Seats offering good crowd watching opportunities are noted. But don't bother with the A line.
Even as casual as it is, it offers a good approach to a new city. Each tour ends with a list of the pubs, their contact information as well as location. Take them in the order you like. Seems like the pubs are all near enough for that. Seems like the sort of pubs you'd want to take in. Even if only to watch the people walk by.
