Another review I neglected to add from my last trip to Europe, in September 2007.

After hitting the tour at the Pilsner Urquell brewery, my daughter, Caitlin, and I did some sightseeing. With a bit of time before our return train to Regensburg, and being a mite parched, we set out to track down the Potrefená Husa pub.

Not being overly familiar with Czech street signs and numbering, we walked around the area a bit before finding the place. It was located on a corner, in a rather modern, pastel colored building. Having been looking for some old, rustic bar didn't help us! Upon entering we found ourselves in a modernistic version of a Czech boozer. Light wood tables, chairs and booths were set up along the windows, with a long bar straight ahead against the back wall. The bar made an L-shape, bending around the corner to the right. Behind the bar were some bottles of liquor and a small in-wall fridge with bottled biers. A few small TVs were hung along the ceiling. The walls inside were all a creamed-pea pastel color, with a bright, orange colored arched ceiling. Numerous large windows provided ample light to the already bright place, and new-age pieces of art adorned the walls. Again, a very modern place, nothing what I expected in an old city like Plzen.

As far as communication went, it was hit or miss. The server we encountered upon entering spoke only Czech; no English or German. "Pivo", we asked, and she pointed us to the bar. Cool! Our bartender did speak English, so we managed to get a bier and food menu. He handed us a small, wooden carving board with many pages attached which we could flip up and down to see what was offered. They had about 7-8 draft biers, and a few bottles. Among the offerings were about 6 Staropramen biers, as well as Stella, Becks, Leffe, and Hoegaarden. I had a Staro Světlý and a Kelt, both quite tasty. Caitlin eschewed bier, going for a cola and then later a Pina Colada. Bier was considerably cheaper than either of those! We grabbed some light eats; me some onion rings with a spicy dipping sauce, and Caitlin an order of 4 potato pancakes accompanied by 4 different cheeses to spread on them. Tasty stuff!

Though not overly thrilled by the decor, Husa was still a very good place for some nice Czech bier and eats, and the staff was quite helpful despite the language barrier. The 2 biers, cola, Colada and 2 apps ran us about $21 total, with tip.

Check it out! Zum Wohl!!
