Sorry, America, but this is the real original Budweiser. Dating back to 1785, Budweiser Budvar Brewery is located in České Budějovice (Budweis in German), and the city of České Budějovice has had the right to brew since 1265 (a VERY important medieval town right). Budweiser Budvar is one of the highest selling exported beers in the Czech Republic, although you may not recognize it—in the US and some other parts of the world, it is marketed Czechvar so as not to be confused with the American Budweiser company.
A bit sweeter than most others lagers, Budweiser isn’t for everyone. But for those out there who are Budweiser lovers, you’ll be sure you’re tasting the original when you visit Czech Republic, and you can make a fully educated decision.
