Owner description: 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.

You can see e old process for brewering and the new one, taste directly from the barrel and see the magnificous system of caves used to forment the beer during over 150 years after the tour, theres a souvenier shop with great products, and a wonderfull restaurant whre you can enjoy the whole menu of beers produced by prazdoj brewery. Amazing tour!

This tour was worth doing. It took 90 minutes and was in English. But there are other language tours too. As it was 4.15pm on a friday in September, there were only 15 people on the tour. However, be prepared for 50+ people at popular holiday times.
The tour included a lot of historical information as well as information on the breing process. The tour included thew sample beer from the barrells in the cellar. However, I strongly recommend wearing a sweater, jacket or fleece for the downstairs cellar part. It's cold down there even in the summer.
After the visit there is a souvenir shop and at the back of that is a huge restaurant which serves typical czech food. If you want to try the food get there early because I'm told it is really popular.
