Pivo a párek
The name translated, “beer and hot dogs”, sums up the full extent of what’s available at this chilled out mecca for local beer-lovers. A chalkboard of brewery names and descriptions outlines the array of weekly offerings on tap. Czech beers are measured in degrees, not the alcohol percentage, which may cause some confusion. The Balling scale refers to the weight of ingredients in the brewing process, which translates loosely to how much sugar is in the beer: 10- or 12-degrees are fairly typical. For a full lesson, catch the bartender in a quiet moment and ask them to explain in detail, but as a rule of thumb, higher degrees translate to more alcohol. Time Out tip: Take home bottles or jugs of your favorite brew from the well-stocked fridges to perk up a picnic in the park outside opening hours.
