Where did the tradition of using beer for cooking come from? It is impossible to say exactly. Almost every country where brewing was developed, had its own unusual recipes.

The Czech Republic made a special contribution to the development of beer culinary, which is not surprising - absolutely everyone knows about the quality of Czech beer. And in small villages and towns where the very same beer was brewed, real culinary masterpieces were created.

Centuries of tradition were not in vain, beer became an integral part of village life. While the brewers were doing their work, the builders were expanding the brewery, the glassblowers were making bottles, and carpenters and blacksmiths were building the barrels. Lessons will suffice at all!

But the wives of the masters also did not want to stand aside and cheered their husbands with new and new beer treats. The best recipes were carefully stored and passed down from generation to generation. Many of them are known today.
