Czech Republic is worldwide known for its long history, artistic and cultural life…. and its BEER. Anyway, since foreign multinational companies started to acquire the main Czech breweries, the traditional way of producing beer and the national pride that the beer represents for the Czech people are in ultimate danger. But not everybody is ready to succumb without a fight…. In a comedic tone, CZECH BEER WAR tells the story of the heroes that in a Don Quixote way stand up to battle and resist against the giants of globalization, an effect that at first glance seems unstoppable. For such a quest they posses the weapons they are sure are infallible: their believes and lots of good traditional Czech beer.
