Bit of an impromptu visit as I was in the area for work. The hotel I was staying is right next-door to the brewery so They made the arrangements for me. They found two tours that were done in English, (German and of course Polish tours are also available).
Ideally you should book a few days in advance. Cost was 12 Zlotys (about £4) and for that you also got a rather nice pint glass to keep and a 500ml glass of beer to drink in the basement pub under the museum wing.
Tour consisted of a small tour around the interactive museum, a 3D video on the history of the brewery (The 3D was slightly unnecessary, but not unpleasant and the information was good)
Then a tour of the working brewery again lots of interesting sights and facts.
Finally a visit to the Pub with a free drink.
The Pub is open until 8pm so if you want to really enjoy the experience you may want to go early enough to do the tour and relax in a charming cellar pub. I went at 5pm and it was a little late rally to do it. It was dark outside when we did the tour so not very many good photos
No children(or anyone under 18 allowed on the tour)
A nice trip to do with friends I would suggest.

Tyskie Brewery is probably one of the most remarkable places I've ever visited! Lots of interesting sights to see, everyone can see how the beer is being brewed, and of course' fantastic relishing of the Tyskie Beer in the museum's pub! One of the best places to visot in Poland!

Guided tour throug Tyskie Brewery Museum is quite atractive for history lovers. Do not expect a lot of interactive activity overhere. Not reccomended for children.

The trip is short but interesting. I recommend to stay longer in the bar and try some fresh beer, it is amazing. You can buy some great souvenirs for decent price. I recommend getting a 14 day old beer.

Topolinco had a bad day. I visited this place four times and I cannot agree with him.
Tychy is not a small town. Small town in Poland is about 10000 p. Tychy is more than 100000 p, so it's a mid.
Tyskie Brewery is a huge brewery. One of the biggest in the world. It produces about 8 million hl a year. It's related with brands like - Pilsner Urquell, Miller, Peroni, Grolsch, Tyskie, Lech, Zubr, Redds, Gingers etc.
One part of the tour is the brewery - you can touch monuments (but still active), you can see nice headquarters, brewery duty room, bottling line (60 000 bottles /h). And the greatest brewhouse Numer 3 with original copper vats. 5 years ago we could also go downstairs to see new fermentation. It's the only brewery in the world where you can see such things, so I can't understand why Topolinco said it's worse than Heineken. Heineken and Zywiec are kind of Disneyland - good for children (it should be forbidden) but not for beer experts.
The second part of the tour is the museum - I agree with Topolinco - it's not "beer disneyland", but it shouldn't be, becaouse all original things and buildings you can see outside are better than any marketing ideas to promote brand in the museum. This is why those bottles and cans you can see in the museum should be only for interested people. Guides shouldn't walk and walk and walk for 40 minutes with groups around those things because it becomes boring. People are inteligent and know how to use multimedia and look at beer mats.
Another thing is 3D cinema. Everybody says this 3D doesn't work. My guide was better than Topolico's, and explained that film was produced in 2004 when it was novelty so we shouldn;t compare it to cheaper new technology like modern 3d tvs which are better. When I was the second time there I watched the film in Browarium in 2D (second proj. didn't work) and it was great. Nice film and good for eyes in 2D.
Generally speaking - Guides should start the film only in 2D. It's better than 3D!!! If you visit this place ask for 2D.
I had 3 different guides, and fortunately it's not the same - each brewery tour was different so it was still interesting for me. Guides are people, so maybe Topolinco got a guide with not similar sense of humour.
You compare it to Heineken. OK, One ticket in Tychy costs - 2 or 4 euro and you get one fresh beer, one limited glass, and 2h tour. Do you still want to say something about Heineken or Carsberg museums?
Topolinco - it's the museum for beer experts, it's not another beer disneyland with jumping clowns.

Must be honest, just went in to kill time. Left the tour 2 hours later having learned so much, enjoyed meeting some new people and seeing the intricacies of the beer making process as well as the history. Extremely knowledgeable tour guide was able to answer simple questions that I'm sure she's heard on every tour in a nice friendly way. Recommended

I'm going to jump right to it, since the rest is pretty much the standard brewery tour. There is nothing standard about the bottling facility though. The bottle are being filled, capped, labeled, boxed, pallated and ready for shipment at blazing speed. If my memory serves me right it was 1,200 bottles per minute per minute.

If you are in the area and like beer or automation, then you need to check this out!

Good value for money but very small museum if not booked ahead. Need to book ahead to take the full guided tour round the brewery, in any language other than Polish. Price is reduced for just museum ticket without the guided tour. The bar area is very nice brick built vaults great building and nice free beer with entry ticket.
Tychy is easy bus ride from Katowice centre.

The guide is very nice and the visit is interesting.
The only bad point is that i think it is too long (almost 2 hours)
