Czech Beer Terrace

August 13th-21st Nagyerdei park

Ten years ago, Czech beer came, saw and convinced many people in Debrecen. Since then, a lot has changed, but not one: Czech beer. The most important thing in brewing is constancy. In addition to the excellent raw materials (water, barley malt, hops), following every step of the traditional technology guarantees constant quality. They have not known this compromise for more than a thousand years. According to the first written mention, the Czechs have been brewing beer since 930. By the end of the 1700s, more than 1,000 breweries had given the Czechs everyday thirst quenchers. They are also responsible for the most popular beer in the world: in Plzen, beer filtration began in 1842. After the advent of Pilsner-type filtered beer, glass mugs became widespread: before that, there wasn’t really a reason to look at the color of beer. Going to a pub is still the most common form of everyday contact in the Czech Republic. They are practiced in real time, regardless of age and gender, face to face, beer to beer: so it’s a personal thing. By the way, there is even an invisible ingredient in Czech beer: the elixir of love of life. Hrabal, sitting next to the Czech beer, realized, “My God, this life is beautiful to the point!”

The Czech Beer Terrace can be visited WITHOUT A PROTECTION CERTIFICATE.
