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.

The tour is about 90mins long and has a lot of great info. The guide spoke near-perfect English and was very easy to understand

Best part is definitely the unfiltered beer straight from the oak barrels at the end and definitely stop at the restaurant after the tour

A great experience for us, as was the fist time visiting a brewery and watching how beer is made.
We had good lunch at the Na Spilce restaurant ,which has traditional atmosphere and is very well organised to accept so many groups. At the end of the tour, we visited the souvenir -shop and bought Pilsner-glasses for Beer .Good to be visited.

We took the english tour. The guide spoke understandalble english and the tour was informative enough. It was pretty cold in the cellars so take a jacket with you :) The beer tasted good even to a person who doesn't drink beer!

We visited the Plzen Brewery Museum, Historic Underground and Pilsner Urquell Brewery on the same day. I was really impressed with all 3 attractions but especially the brewery tour. It only cost around 90czk, about £2.60, (student price with an additional 25% off for booking 2 tours.) It included a 1.5 hour tour of both the old and new brewery sites which was great fun. It ended with tasting 2 whole cups of beer straight from the old wooden barrels. Our tour guide was amazing, not only did he speak perfect English but also bet he could say 'cheers' in any language which was very impressive! Honestly can't recommend this enough if you're in Plzen!

Only slight downside was that the famous restaurant which has 560 seats was completely full when we tried to eat there around 18:30, so make a reservation to be sure!

Great tour as far as brewery-tours are concerned. Our guide was efficient and nice. However the tour was unnecessary thorough I found. They could have trimmed it down by 15 minutes without compromising the content. Also, bring a sweater because down in the catacombs it can get a bit cold.

The complimentary elusive draft (!) Urquell beer is well worth the entire thing though!
