About Pilsner Urquell Brewery, Pilsen

Plzeňský prazdroj a.s. (pronounced [ˈpl̩zɛɲskiː ˈprazdroj a ɛs], German: Pilsner Urquell) is a Czech brewery founded in 1842 and headquartered in Plzeň, Czech Republic. It is the first brewery to produce pilsener blond lager style beer, branded Pilsner Urquell, making it the inspiration for more than two-thirds of the beer produced in the world today, which are named pils, pilsner and pilsener. Both Plzeňský Prazdroj and Pilsner Urquell can be roughly translated into English as "the Fountainhead at Pilsen" or "the original source of Pilsner".

  • We did not pre-book a tour and upon our arrival on a Sunday in October the next German and English tours were each full so we had to wait a bit to get on a free tour. We ended up taking an English tour with our guide named George. He was a great tour guide and conveyed the tour in a very interesting and detailed manner. The tour included the bottling and packaging, the two brew houses and even part of the extensive cellar system with lots of interesting facts about the history od Pilsner Urquell, the brewing process and more. Also, we got to tasted a glass of unfiltered beer. I would definitely recommend the tour and hope you get a tour guide as great as George :-)

  • The brewery is huge and they have clearly made an investment in a world class tour experience. But our guide was impatient and unable to answer some of our questions. On the Sunday we went, the canning/bottling lines were shutdown for maintenance, which while understandable was disappointing (and not apparent when we booked the tour). As someone who enjoys craft beers and has visited many breweries, the lack of some information is surprising. Why did we taste the unfiltered beer but not the filtered beer? Or try the highly touted local water? Recommend visiting if you have a chance as the tour through the cellars is very cool and the history is long and interesting.

  • A brilliant, detailed tour that's very well set up. Excellent tour guide (Tomas) who delivered all the information clearly and in a very good manner. Definitely do this if you're in Pilsen

  • Great brewery experience with knowlegable and enthusiastic staff. Its neat to see the history and structures as well. Also recommend pre booking tours, they fill up fast.

  • Great tour. Lots of info. You get to see the old and the new. Unpasteurised and unfiltered beer was delicious. Highly recommended.
