Speaking of the Golden Nectar
In Brno, we have Starobrno. Now, it may not be the best beer in the Republic, but it's not so bad. Their brewery restaurant (on Mendel Square) is a fine dining option reminiscent of brew-pub places, and the menu is hearty. I'd say it equals the Potrefena husa, which is the Staropramen chain of restaurants. They're also advertising a new outlet store next to the restaurant. Though I haven't tried it, their non-alcoholic option, called Frííí (that is, Freeeeee), is rumored to be one of the best non-alcoholic brews on the Czech market.
I came across the advertisement in the photo shortly after reading about the Czech beer trails. With the FotoPivo offer (available for a limited time only), you get one free can of beer with every 24 photos you develop. So get snapping!
Photos aren't the only thing that gets sold with beer. For example, I've seen offers for "free 24-packs" when you buy a new refrigerator. Or, free beer for every gambler at the slot machines. Oh, the possibilities...
Are these deals worth a try? That depends on the kind of beer they're offering.
