I am sure it has been expensive to build such an advanced visitor's centre. But money and technology completely wasted. You'll never get into the actual brewery, and the centre could be located anywhere in Prague - or anywhere in the world. They actually repeatedly say "the brewery is ONLY SEVERAL dozens meters away". That sentence doesn't make sense. There is no live guide, recorded voices will tell you the history and instruct you to move on. They call it interactive - I haven't figured out, what the activities are.
They should have let a brewmaster or a beer lover design the visitor's centre - not the IT department. Complete disappointment.
You'll be served 1 beer at the end of the tour. It is small, and you can choose from 4 types. They don't even bother presenting their complete range of beers in their own visitor's centre? Fail. Like in "major fail"!
I'll give it 2 stars instead of 1. The technology is nice and impressive, albeit more suitable for something else...

The "tour" consists of just 3 "Interactive" rooms. You don't go near the brewery or interact with an official guide. You simply move through 3 rooms reading and watching video/listening to audio descriptions. Using flash photography causes the interactive 3D bits to break down. Not all of the tour is in English either.

Don't bother with it. Simply visit the website. Read up there, and go straight to the visitor centre bar for a fresh beer. Which, incidentally, costs more than what you would pay from a "normal" Czech bar!!!

DEFINITELY NOT worth £6 entry (which does include a SMALL beer!)

NOT recommended.

Beer drinkers will be happy with brewery tour. Specially because it ends with tasting. The tour includes only 5 rooms, but it is very well structured. You get virtual guidance in more languages and is very interactive.

The tour is brief at beat and mentions the history and traditions of the brewery. It is very americanised and relies heavily on audio visual delivery rather than a knowledgeable guide who could offer insight. Have been on better brewery tours but worthwhile if you like the beer.

Nothing much sets this apart from other brewery tours, although it was fun trying out the different beers at the end of the tour.
