I like your report on beer, Monte. If you don't mind I will do just one little correction. Staropramen is brewed in Praha Smichov. Beer brewed in Plzen is called Prazdroj; exported as Pilsner Urquell. And as you said they also brew Gambrinus.

Palm should be Belgium...the very best beer you've ever had? Those are some mighty big words there ;-) I like a man with his priorities straight.
