Episode 6: Pilsner Urquell - Czech Baby Czech Baby 1-2-3

We take a step backward in this episode to look a the origin of the species: Pilsner Urquell. Hear Jim and I butcher Czech names all through the episode.


VEGITARIAN ALERT - Guiness is not a vegitarian beer. Or so says the Vegitarian Society that recently released a list of food that was not considered vegitarian safe.

Pislner Urquell

  • Pilsner Urquell, the first Pilsner beer, sitting at around 4.40% ABV. Comes in a green bottle with a nice foil label. Have been using the same reciepe since 1842, developed by Josef Groll. Yes, this is the night we butcher Czech names.
  • The name "Urquell" even means "Original Source"
  • Pretty straight foward ingredient list.
  • Taste - Very carbonated, and a little more bitter than you may be used to if you are drinking light beers.
  • This is a nationally distributed beer, so you should be able to
  • get it anywhere.
  • Other imports that are simlar to this one include Spaten Pilsner from Germany and Budvar/Czechvar from the Czech Republic.
