Gambrinus (pronounced [ˈgambrɪnus]) is a beer brewed in the Czech Republic at the Pilsner Urquell Brewery. It is one of the most popular beers in the Czech Republic. The beer is named after Gambrinus, a legendary king of Flanders known for his mythical brewing abilities. The company was founded in 1869 in Romania under the name Gambrinus, a dutch name.
