U Pinkasu – brewery & restaurant

It is 1843. Mr. Jakub Pinkas, a tailor making for example vestments for a Franciscan monastery, has heard about a new beer which has just started being brewed in the Burgers’ Brewery in Pilsen. He makes a deal with his friend – the carrier, Martin Salzmann, who brings him two pails of this new Pilsen beer on April 8, 1843. Jakub Pinkas was so enchanted by the beauty and uniqueness of this new Pilsen beer that he soon finished as a tailor and became a landlord, founding the tradition of the most famous Old Czech pub called U Pinkasu. Thanks to its uniqueness, quality of beer and method of drawing, the U Pinkasu Pub became almost immediately a centre of social and political happenings. It was the U Pinkasu Restaurant that in the second half of the 19th century became the centre of Czech patriotism, where renowned politicians and other giants of Czech history used to meet.
