Evan Rail has written a wonderful post correcting the Czech entries in the Oxford Companion to Beer. It corrects many errors about the origins of Pilsner Urquell (errors that have appeared in multiple English-language publications). Go and read it. It'll be time well spent.
For a mere 25 euros, I'll create a bespoke recipe for any day of the year you like. As well as the recipe, there's a few hundred words of text describing the beer and its historical context and an image of the original brewing record.

Guilt button - brewed my recipe commercially? pay me 100 euros. It really is the least you can do.
