    Budweiser Budvar (sold as "Czechvar" in the US, so it's not confused with the Budweiser sold by Anheuser-Busch).

      is a city in the Czech Republic. Anheuser-Busch took the name and successfully sued so  the beer produced in that city has to go by another name.

        be in the style of the Czech pilsners from that area.  I can't say they succeed very well, but there it is.

        Stella's great.  I think she'd like them too.  The Czechvar is probably my favorite in that style.  The Urquell has maybe a little bit more bitterness to it.
