Why drink more beer? It’s good for you!

drink beer

Well, just consider that when we touch the cold bottle from the fridge or over the bar counter, we listen to the carbon dioxide that is released while the beer’s foam develops, we see the amber color of the beer poured into our glass, we smell the aromatic substances that come from the snatch block and of course we taste the distinct bitter beer taste that is associated with the contained acids and wooden taste of tannins.

Enjoying a beer on a hot day watching our favorite sports games and cooking barbeque is one of the traditions beer has become famous worldwide for.

Valt Purity Vodka

Enjoy Valt Cosmopolitans in true New York style!

Valt Purity Vodka


But why make your Cosmo with any old vodka, wwhen you can give it the posh edge by using Valt vodka from Scotland. Yes Scotland. Valt vodka is a single malt Scottish vodka which was actually conceived by two Scotsmen who were drinking in a bar in New York City. Reminiscing about their homeland, they came up with an idea to create a vodka using only Scottish barley and Scottish mountain waterm waters from the famous River Spey.

This recipe created a truly exceptional taste of barley sugar and cream on the nose with a warm melting butter finish; a perfect base for the sensual Cosmopolitan. Made with the main ingredient vodka, the cocktail also uses Cointreau or Triple Sec, cranberry juice, and either fresh-squeezed or sweetened lime juice.

Glenburgie 1996

So said Sir Winston Churchill, but he probably would have thought differently if he had partaken of this youthful, slightly raw, ultra clean and fresh single malt. Relatively inexpensive, this 14-year-old spirit is a joy to drink.

On both the nose and the palate, the whisky conjures up fields of barley shimmering in the sun and all manner of mainland summer imagery. A great "starter" whisky as it gives your taste buds a good slap to get them warmed up as you settle in for an evening of sniffing, sipping, swishing and swallowing.

This majestic, premium ale has a rich malt whisky color and clean. fresh whisky finish and is best drunk chilled, chasing a dram of light single malt scotch whisky down the gullet.  

Did you know that during the first few days of the production process whisky and beer are practically identical? While beer is fermented and whisky is distilled, both beverages share the same basic ingredients, namely malted grain, yeast and water.

G-String Gomorrah

One hour south of Chicago, just this side of the Indiana line, there’s a patchwork burg that looks by day like any midland patch you see from any railroad right-of-way: the same small frame houses, quietly curtained, where 20,000 squares bless their state of grace and gratefully tuck themselves in by ten. Where Daddy gets up at five a.m., bangs pots about the kitchen a while, and leaves with a black lunch bucket under his arm to be on time at the roundhouse by six.

Where crossing bells dong the whole forenoon, warning Daddy to get his work done and get back between walls again, lest some creature of the cat’s twilight creep over the state line and snatch him into Indiana.

Baleric Beats In Benesov


Every now and again a guest DJ comes to town but invariably you find the venue too big or too small, or somehow just lacking in a genuine feelgood atmosphere. The indigenous scene is more intense and serious – perhaps humourless is the word – than a typical Ibiza-style experience.


This is not to be overly critical of Prague clubbing, which is its own unique entity, but simply to say that the Pete Slong, Judge Jules scene is not really practiced out here yet, perhaps explaining the problems mentioned above when it is attempted.
