So today we went to Plzen (Pilsen in English). It's a city about an hour and a half from Prague toward Germany. The town is home to the Pilsen brewery the makers of Pilner Urquell. We did the brewery tour and it was fantastic. We went into all the places where the were actually brewing the beer and got to do a tasting of beer before the final filtartion. It was really tasty. Pilsner Urquell tastes much better here. It's less bitter then it is at home. It's weird becuase the Pilsner at home is imported from the factory we were at. Maybe it doesn't travel well. Anyway we went into the center after that and had some coffee. The town itself is very urban it is much bigger than Kutna Hora. It was a good day. Now our Irish friends from Bratislava have come and we're going out to dinnner with them and Keith a chef from Alaska who is staying in the same room. We will probably stay up all night again because we have to catch the shuttle to the airport at 5:30 in the morning for our 7:30am flight to Amsterdam.
