Pilsen Beer Attracts Visitors from all over the World

Pilsner is without a doubt the world's most famous style of beer

Pilsen and beer are inseparable since 1842 when the first brew of the Pilsner Urquell beer – a bottom fermented light lager, was brewed here. Many tourists and beer lovers come annually to Pilsen to visit the brewery via a guided tour. The guided tour takes the visitors into the Pilsner Urquell Brewery – its modern bottling plant, unique exposition of the used ingredients and historical, as well as current brew house. The guided tour is finished in the brewery cellars by tasting of non-filtered and non-pasteurised Pilsner Urquell beer directly from the oak barrel. Apart from the guided tour the brewery also offers a training lesson in beer drawing which will help you to master the art of beer drawing from a tap. The programme is about three hours long and it can be ordered for groups from 15 to 45 people. The quality of services which are offered by the Pilsner Urquell Brewery is confirmed by the Certificate of Excellence which was awarded by the largest traveling portal Trip Advisor. This certificate helped the Pilsner Urquell Brewery to become one of the 10% best evaluated tourist destinations.

The Pilsner Urquell Brewery can be visited during the whole year, as well as the beer spa of the Purkmistr Brewery or many other small regional and local breweries. For real beer lovers we also recommend a special event of the Sun in the Glass festival – a festival of small breweries which takes place on September 20th in the yard of the Purkmistr Brewery in Pilsen- Cernice. You can taste almost 70 beer types of Czech and foreign production there.
