Czech Republic’s Possible Law on “Liquid Bread”

by Admin on January 28, 2013

Is the Czech Republic heaven?

Yes: in most restaurants and pubs around the country, beer is cheaper than water. But not for long. The country’s health minister wants to require restaurants to offer at least one non-alcoholic beverage at a cheaper price than beer, in an effort to provide teenagers with an alternative.

While that’s noble of him, the country’s restaurant owners are not happy with the potential regulation. The Czech Republic has the highest consumption of beer in the world — it’s the birthplace of the pilsner, after all. In addition, its citizens aren’t excited about this sort of strict government regulation, having lived under a communist government for decades.

The Czech Hotel and Restaurant Association says if the law is enacted, they’re willing to fight it in court. Cheers to that. Or rather, “na zdravi!”
