We went to Prague, walked around for two hours, oh sure it is so pretty. Then we left. The wife and I drove to Kutna Hora through rural roads and small towns and that was the real Czech deal. Arrive to Kutna Hora to see the famous Ossuary (bone chapel), but wait, there is so much more to see here! A beautiful old town with a massive Gothic cathedral and serious architecture. And few tourists- yeah, we're loving it.
We are ravenous like wolves lost in the Bohemian forest, and there is a summer storm coming that promises to be as monumental as Kutna Hora herself. Lucky us we stumbled upon Pivnice Dacicky. This is a Czech-style beer hall/pub/restaurant/beer garden. You know how it goes. A grand old interior with lots of wood and communal tables, some medieval-looking stuff hanging on the walls and that unique old-world atmosphere that makes you feel like this is the real deal. "The" true Czech beer joint.
Plus a beer garden outside, which is where the wife and I sat. They are serious about their beer here, let me tell you, with six taps and a variety of styles. Primator Dark, Primator Weizenbier, Kutna Hora Lager, Pilsner (Urquell, I believe), Gambrinus Pale and a rotating tap that had a a grapefruit beer during our visit.
We chose the Primator Dark and Primator Weizenbier, both delicious and quite affordable at 35 koruna per 1/2-liter mug. But they also offer beer flights ("beer degustation", says their English menu) of their six taps and beer cocktails too, including one with Primator Dark, grenadine, vodka and apple and lemon juices. For a country like Czech Republic, where most beer joints are limited to two or three beers, the scope here at Pivnice Dacicky is truly outstanding.
And then the food. Serious Czech-Bohemian cuisine with lots of game meat. We had the "game sausage" (89 korunas), the "smooked goose breast" (139 k) and the "saddle of wild boar, boletus and cream sauce (279 k). All impressive, but the wild boar stood out. It took a while to come out but oh my, witness this wild-boar filet mignon perfectly cooked to a bloody redness. Outrageous.
The storm came and it poured wild and brutal, but we were in the roofed area of the beer garden enjoying the show, drinking our dark beer and eating our wild boar. Perfection in Kutna Hora. Our waiter spoke perfect English and thought he had seen us in New York City, where he worked at a modern Czech restaurant for a year. Small world...
Truly a brilliant Czech beer-and-food experience!
