Once again I'd like to turn your attention to the NY Times article last weekend about Czech Pilseners. It points out that like wine, fine beer is region-specific. There's an interesting bit about a dispute between Anheuser-Busch and a brewery in Budvar, Czech Republic over the name Budweiser. Also, it covers Pilsner Urquell, which is not only "rated the best by a majority of Czechs" but is also available at almost every supermarket I've ever visited in the US.
Just wanted to keep you up to date.
