The newly opened Czech beer pub “U LVA” on Abashidze 24 is hosting the events from 19:00 until 23:00. The initiative is brought by the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic. The motive behind this festival is to introduce Czech culture and it is an amazing way to do so.
The opening held on June 23rd at 19:00 had a very lovely atmosphere. The welcoming hosts of the place along with the guests made the event very special. One of the highlights of the night was the authentic Czech beer, such as Pilsner Urquell. Highlighting and bringing to the forefront these traditions enriches the local community and it’s a great initiative that is being brought about.
At the opening of Czech beer Days Tbilisi 2020 was attended by the Czech ambassador to Georgia Petr Mikyska, as well as representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia.
The event aims at introducing traditional Czech Beer - a delicious beverage with a rich flavor and Czech cuisine. During the Czech Beer Days visitors have an opportunity to benefit 1+1 offer on purchasing beer (buy one 0.5 L of Pilsner Urquell and get one for free) and 50% discount on national Czech dishes.
We want to remind that Pilsner Urquell was first brewed in 1842 in Plzeň (Pilsen) in Western Bohemia (part of the Czech Republic) and is regarded as the historically first lager type beer. This crisp, refreshing golden lager was made with local ingredients: sweet Moravian barley, delicately bitter Saaz hops, soft Pilsen water, and bottom-fermenting H-strain yeast. The beer was named after the city where it was brewed - Pilsen, where it is still brewed today. Over the last 178 years, pilsner-style lager has become the world’s most popular beer, with seven out of 10 beers in the world imitating this innovation. There are many pilsner-style beers out there, but only one original.
