Very, very old beer!

In November (2011), a couple of us visited the St. Thomas Brewery Bar at the magnificent Augustine Hotel in Prague.  Once the cellar of a still existing monastery which brewed its beer here since 1352, this room has been transformed into a very cool bar, complete with stalactites, arches, and traces of the original stonework and flooring.  The monastery's beer, which was brewed there from 1352 to 1952, is back again.   The Augustine, now own the recipe and serve it EXCLUSIVELY here in this bar.

Known as Svaty Tomas Tmave (St Thomas) beer. In addition to this magnificent piece of history in a glass, the hotel's microbrewery produces seasonal beers, also served at the St. Thomas Brewery Bar.
