I wear an xxl castelli, xxxl biemme (that's 3x), xxl (2xl) agu, and this one fits a little smaller than the ones mentioned. the fabric is made up of little wicking blocks like castelli, but is much thinner.

I was in Prague a few years ago. The Budweisser Budvar brand has nothing to do with American Bud. Nada.

The beer there (on tap) is awesome.

The brand is also several hundred years old if I am not mistaken.

Nice jersey.

father in law said a pint of good beer from tap cost about a US dollar, and was readily available at nearly any given time or place in their journeys, and in wholly unreal variety. ah, it must be Nirvana!

American Bud is related to Czech beer, (as a dime store Huffy is related to a Colnago). Both are Pilsners, derived from the orginal Pilsner Urquell. VERY tasty stuff, esp. if you can get it on tap.
To have a Pilsner Urquell jersey, now that would be cool!
Nice jerseyconfig

finding this one was like chasing an untamed ornithoid without cause. they also brought back stickers (!), a sew-on patch (i collect 'em like blue haired old ladies collect miniature spoons), and a local cycling flyer in some crazy foreign language. don't they speak english everywhere yet? the heathens!

Prague is awesome. We went through while on our honeymoon.

There's a great beer hall/restaurant called "Provinci Radegast" that has excellent food and cold beer. Plus, it's cheap. Unfortunately I can't tell you how to get there. If you can find it, stop in and eat. I recommend the "royal grand platter".

A couple of years ago we were able to find beer for $0.25 by getting outside of the main tourist areas.

Ufleckhu is also nice and centrally located. A superb beer garden. Their house special, dark and bitter will put you into lala land quickly.

Cerneho vola is up by the castle. Pint runs about 55 cents US. No English spoken but easy to get what you need.

And yes, the Budvar jersey was an excellent pick up.

I went to Ufleckhu in 1994. To this day, their stuff remains the best beer I've ever had. Coming close in behind, though, is the Tongerlo I had in Brussels a few years later. While in Praha, I tried to score some Czech tubular tires. The only tubulars the dealers had were French!
pee in your beer?DougSloan

Not to pee in your beer or anything, but some events prohibit liquor logos on clothing... just an fyi.

Cool jersey, though.

yeah, but none where i'd be likely to wear this one :) nmJS Haiku Shop

Talk about irony -- here I am sitting in my apartment in Vienna, Austria after a nice 1 hour ride through the Wienerwald, drinking a Budvar beer (the original Budweiser) when I come across this post. How cool is that!
