The Pilsner Urquell Brewery Tour

The Pilsner Urquell Brewery Tour, Plzen, Czech Republic (B)

As a casual beer drinker, one of my favorite travel activities is visiting breweries around the world. Brewery tours are a fantastic way to get the best possible beer right from the source. I’ve been to quite a few, but I don’t think I’ve been as impressed as I was at the Pilsner Urquell brewery tour.

The Pilsner Urquell (Plzeňský Prazdroj) brewery is legendary for being the first place in the world to brew Pilsner style beer. Such a successful endeavor that over the years, the brewery has grown into a small city where Pilsner Urquell, along with several other brands of Czech beer and cider are produced and bottled. As part of the brewery tour, you get an inside look at the process.

You begin in the small gallery in the visitor’s center where you learn a bit about the history of beer brewing in Pilsen and about Pilsner Urquell in particular. Then after a small stop at a mini-brewing room where experimental batches are made, you go outside to the courtyard, where you learn about the history of the buildings around you and their functions. ......
