Kozel Manor House (Czech Republic)

Once upon a time, less than a year ago, I had a travel day in the Czech Republic in which I was to move from Pilsen to Český Krumlov via my rental car. Google Maps said I’d be there in 2.5 hours, but I couldn’t check in to my new lodgings for something like four or five hours so I “searched along the route” for the word “castle”. Google came up with something like 20 of them! What?!?! The first one I stopped at was this one (maybe because Kozel is also the name of a Czech beer, and I thought it could also be a brewery?). Gorgeous place with virtually no people.

The stadium covering some of this photo was previously known as Stadion města Plzně and is the home turf of FC Viktoria Plzeň. The Pilsner Urquell Brewery is behind it.

Happy Sunday!

Seems like it should last until the end of October but whatever…

Today’s photo comes from the brewery of the original Pilsner, Pilsner Urquell. First brewed in 1842 by Bavarian brewer Josef Groll, it’s unfortunate that to taste this beer as it’s meant to be tasted, you have to go to the Czech Republic. The beer doesn’t age well or taste great out of a can or bottle IMO.

On the other hand, if I’m to be transported instantly to drink a beer on tap/draft then that location is the Czech Republic and that beer is Pilsner Urquell.
