From: Pilsen, Czech Republic
Joshua M. Bernstein says: "Last fall, I had the chance to visit Pilsen, the Czech Republic birthplace of the pilsner. In America, Pilsner Urquell’s flavor is often dulled by time and temperature. But in Pilsen, the beer is a crisp, aromatic thing of beauty. One taste, and you’ll see why it was so revolutionary. The brewery has now started a cold-shipping program to ensure that the beer is Czech-fresh."
