Mission

Pivo is the one Czech word that the majority of people will leave Prague having learned, it just so happens to be the word for beer.  Beer however, isn’t just a beverage. In the Czech Republic especially, beer is as prevalent as wine is in Italy. It’s a meeting point, a shared experience, and often times the in-house of community.

Here, we hope to exist as an online branch of that community and to share art, whether literary or visual, which is inspired by the Czech experience.

To begin, Pavel Šrut’s poem Beerspective:

Beerspective

Towards the end of the summer beginning the seventies
Or eighties
I stepped out of Brčálka
A pub in the part of town called Josefov
Where with few words
I babbled much
While afar at the back
Of the Law School
A bus arrived full of hunters
From their latest hunt
And so I strode back into Brčálka
Where towards the end of the summer beginning the seventies
Or eighties
A turned up glass is a telescope
In which you can see the close from afar

—Pavel Šrut
