For your breakfast reading, check out Evan Rail's beer-travelogue in the NYTimes Online (free sign up required). It's enough to make Bohemia beautiful again! My favorite bottled Czech beer is Bernard because it's the only unpasteurized Czech beer sold in bottles. That means the fermentation hasn't really been stopped and gives that yeastiness that is rare to find in most bottled beers. Bernard's unpasteurized offerings are a smooth, rich dark beer and a kvasnicove-style "holiday" lager.
Thanks to Amy for the tip. The article has appeared on a few other Czech-themed blogs, too. The Ultimate Beer run in the Czech Republic.
