So, What’s “Pivo”?

Pivo is the Czech word for beer.

In the Czech Republic, beer is god. In fact, the Czechs drink more beer per capita than any other country in the world. They are also home to the world-famous, Pilsner Urquell.

Why The Pivo Project?

After my first year abroad, I noticed more and more craft beer pubs and microbrewies popping up in Prague. Interested in exploring the Czech craft beer scene, I began scouring the internet for English craft beer blogs and social media accounts to point me in the right direction. Needless to say, there wasn’t much to be found.

So, out of sheer necessity and curiosity, The Pivo Project was born.

Before moving back to the US, I considered changing the “The Pivo Project” to something more English friendly. In the end, it didn’t feel genuine or representative of my journey, or why I started the blog in the first place.

Long story short, The Pivo Project lives on!
