Czech beer proverbs, ranked

In a country of such fine beer drinking tradition it is impossible not to mention a few beer related proverbs. Here we rank our top three favourite ones and offer our take on them.

 


1.ONLY WITH BEER DOES THIRST BECOME BEAUTIFUL

This is one of the most poetic sentences related to beer to cross somebody’s lips (or keyboard). What a great way to celebrate the beautiful interplay of malt, hops, water and yeast! That is exactly why this is our choice for the #1 proverb.

 

2. A FINE BEER MAY BE JUDGED BY ONLY ONE SIP, BUT IT’S BETTER TO BE THOROUGHLY SURE

Judge beer by the sip and you will miss a lot. We live in an era of Untappd instant reviews which sometimes feel more like a beer collectors race instead of an exchange of beer drinking experiences. People order beer flights and confuse their taste buds by combining many different flavors in a short period of time. Experience the best drink in the world - thoroughly!

 

3. THE GOVERNMENT THAT RAISES THE PRICE OF BEER WILL FAIL

Throughout history, government decisions always played an important role in the development of beer. Taxes, often the main tool of the rulers, affected beer in various ways. A change in tax could raise the price of various ingredients or make some ingredients more preferable. Whatever happened, raising the price of beer was often the last resort. The thing that actually happened more often, especially during turmoil, was the decrease in beer alcohol level.
