The thing that some folks may not understand, is how much beer is going down the drain because of this mess. We had multiple kegs that we had to pour out because they were past their sell-by date. Thankfully, our distributor stepped up and gave us credit for all the full kegs that we had, and half credit for all the kegs that had been tapped, but still...it was a sad day last week having to pour out all those kegs. I mean, there's only so much beer you can bring home in growlers...

Similar thing here, but only at specific bars, which I did not seek out because they would be packed. I'll take my full priced beer in peace on the patio, thanks

In Sweden, for good or ill, the pubs haven't closed during the whole crisis - unless they failed the constant health authority inspections: in which case, they were closed on the spot.

I'm not sure which I love more, free beer or pre-paid beer!

Well certainly not with that attitude.

Your bar is on the ball.  I know quite a few bars who have had kegs they forgot about for a half a year in the cooler, and just pop it on rotation.

Well, in the US you got your chance to use them before it hit, give us a chance in Europe to enjoy them after.

1/2 a roast duck?!? Dude, I'm a big guy with a big appetite, but even I start to get full after a duck confit leg, a whole half a duck would actually be unappealing unless you were feeding a small family.

Good call.  I'm also a big guy with a big appetite...and I never ordered it when I've been there...went with goulash or sausages.

For the record, U Glaubicu is in Prague...easy walk from the Charles Bridge.  And the Pilsner Urquell flows like wine.
