Deputy governor Pavel Hroch (South Bohemia 2012) informed about this, saying that this tradition is passed down from generation to generation in the South Bohemia region and helps the people of South Bohemia to share joys and worries.
“Historically, there have been a large number of small and large breweries here. And if we go even further into history, in the Middle Ages, for example, 387 houses in České Budějovice had the right to brew. So the South Bohemian pub was, is and will be a place of strong social interaction, a place where the only culture in the village often takes place and is concentrated,” said Hroch.
He emphasized that the South Bohemian Region is the first in the republic to have this term entered into the list. “The expert commission of the South Bohemian Region and the council therefore decided to comply with the South Bohemian Museum in České Budějovice, which submitted, in cooperation with the Czech Association of Breweries and Malthouses, a proposal to officially recognize gatherings over beer as a unique phenomenon of the folk community and social customs of the South Bohemian Region,” explained Hroch.
He added that local gastronomic specialties, interior fittings, specific decors and many local customs and traditions are also related to the traditional South Bohemian beer culture.
He visited a record number of pubs in 24 hours. The hardest thing in life, he says
