In the Czech Republic, Drinkers Race to Tap Their Own Beer
When it comes to beer drinking, many would think that Germans hold the European record. Think again.
The Czech Republic, the home of pilsner beer, is not only considered to have the best quality brew.
Statistically speaking, the Czechs also drink more of the barley than anyone else in the world. No surprise that they have come up with a new way to enjoy it -- the latest hit in Prague is the Beer Station.

pilsner(pĭlz'nər, pĭls'-) also pilsener or Pilsener (pĭl'zə-nər, -sə-, pĭlz'nər, pĭls'-)
[PIHLZ-nuhr] Originally this term referred to a very fine beer brewed in Pilsen, in the Czech Republic. Today, however, it more commonly refers to any pale, light lager. Pilsners generally have a mild (some say bland) flavor, although a few reflect a pronounced hops characteristic. See also beer.
