I'm sure there were Czech beers there as well as several other obscure ones.
I'll check with Harry and report back.

It was the biltong that most surprised me. When we stopped in South

were very few places it was deemed safe to enter. Very sad.  Going back to
the wine merchant, I didn't venture in this trip but does
he stock Czech beers?
