if you’re a fan of fine beer, then there’s ex­tra cause to cel­e­brate the Bo­hemian city of Plzeň’s des­ig­na­tion as a 2015 euro­pean Cap­i­tal of Cul­ture. in ad­di­tion to its fine mu­se­ums, cul­tural events and ar­chi­tec­ture, Plzeň (also known as Pilsen) in the Czech Repub­lic has been a hub of beer mak­ing since the 13th cen­tury. at the Plzeňský Praz­droj brew­ery, home to the es­teemed Pilsner Urquell lager beer, you can ex­plore an ex­hi­bi­tion of in­gre­di­ents, the his­toric brew house and mod­ern bot­tling plant as well as en­joy a tast­ing of un­fil­tered beer tapped from oak bar­rels. the restau­rant-pub at­tached to the Brew­ery Mu­seum is a top spot to sam­ple tra­di­tional Czech cui­sine.
