Overview
More
Every country has its symbols and legends and the Czech ones include Pilsner Urquell lager which has been brewed in a town called Plzen (Pilsen) since 1842. Since then the fame of Pilsner Urquell beer has spread around the world and, inspired by this exceptional brew, more than two-thirds of the beers produced today are commonly known as pils, pilsner or pilsener. The brewery tour showcases all of the authentic places where Pilsner Urquell lager has been brewed for more than 175 years, and where its story continues today. You will see the heart of the brewery - both the historical and contemporary brewhouse. You will smell and taste the raw materials that are used to brew Pilsner Urquell, and the panoramic cinema will take you through the brewing process. And at the end you will taste unfiltered Pilsner Urquell beer tapped straight from oak lager barrels in the historic brewery cellars.The brewery is open year-round. The journey from Prague takes about one-and-a-half hours and you can either travel on your own by car, bus or train.

The brewery tour is really good, more in depth than others I have attended. It does take 100 minutes or more, plan accordingly. Cost is approximately $9 per person. Decent deals on merchandise in the gift shop.

Určitě stojí za to navštívit pivovar. Nedporučuji jezdit autem 🍺 If you are in Pilsen you should go to see it. But do not drink and drive 🍻

I am a local but i love joining my overseas friends on this tour! I always discover something new. Beer has a long tradition in Pilsen and it is great to hear about the history and see the traditional way of brewing.
