This means that for almost ten centuries, Czechs have had a lot of time to perfect beer. Here are some of the best beers, in no particular order, to try in the Czech Republic today: Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný Pilsner is a legendary beer that was first officially brewed in 1842 in the Burghers’ Brewery, Pilsen, by Josef Groll.
