Looking for Budvar beer?

I'm looking for Budweiser Budvar, which is a Checkosovakian beer which has no relation to the Anheiser-Busch beer called Budweiser. According to wikipedia, it is now marketed in the U.S., though it may be called Czeckvar here. Anyone in the bay area carry this? Thanks.

  1. I *think* I saw it in the new products section at Trader Joe's.

      I am wrong, the new beer at TJ's is called like "Bv┬Ársk" or something. I didn't see Budvar on the regular beer aisle at the San Carlos location.

    2. Weimax Wines & Spirits has this beer
      1178 Broadway

      1. It's a Czech beer, made just outside of Prague. I'm hoping the correct spelling will help your search.

        1. I've seen it at most of the Trader Joe's in the San Francsico Area.

            Along these lines, does anyone know where to find an Australian beer - Toohey's Extra Dry (TED)? Haven't been able to locate it. Thanks.

          2. Trader Jo's and Beverage and More both carry it. Its been a while since I've had it but it is a great drink - belive they dropped the budweiser part of the name due to pressure from Anheiser-Busch, odd seeing as they were brewing the stuff before US Budwiser was a twinkle in anyones eye.
