UNESCO like to go around slapping their name onto olde stuff to try to persuade people not to knock it all down and build a supermarket instead. Cesky Krumlov is one of its boys.

Could they do the same with lager? Any region, town or city which still makes lager as it's supposed to be made, unfiltered, unpasteurised and with sufficient lagering time, could have a 'UNESCO Lager Area' designation. Franconia in Germany could certainly claim it, and so could here thanks to these Eggenberg geezers:

The light version is unfiltered and better than the dark one. I pondered whether, if you substituted somebody's pint of Fosters for this, would they send it back because it tasted of something?

Some places around town make a real do of ye olde Czech type stuff and serve it up in ye olden style mugs.

Combined with a roaring fire it almost makes you want to not have a bath for a year whilst catching some disgusting skin disease or whatever people did back then.

Rest ye merry, Eggenberg lager and Cesky Crumlov.
