So you pay about $10 for a plastic cup full of the unfiltered, unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell. So is it worth it? Hell yeah. A nice tour FWIW. The second most interesting part of the tour is to see half the people on the tour dump out their samples of the beer when I know most people here would give their left nut to just try a couple sips.

Probably my favorite brewery tour of all-time. You get to see all of the new equipment- tanks, bottling, etc as well as the old cellar where they would lager the beer. The highlight of the tour was trying the unfiltered Pilsner Urquell. Simply amazing. Afterwards, we hit the restaurant to try all of the beers and had some very tasty food. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended.

You’re only going here to get the Pilsner from the wood. We all know that. But the brewery still has some historically interesting features, and the tour isn’t bad for a big industrial joint. Restaurant was not impressive. When will they start the special tour that just goes to the caves and includes all-you-can-drink from the wood?

We ended up spending most of the afternoon here, starting with a lunch at their enormous restaurant. That part was not the most memorable of the visit as the food was sub-par (-1 on the sausage plate with 10 smallish sausages served over a watery sauerkraut). The visit was pretty much worth it though. WHile relatively long at 90 minutes, it is globally interesting and places like the bottling facility, fermenting room and the huge cellars are attractive indeed. Going out from the cellars @ 6 degrees to the 30 degrees yard under the sun to drink your freshest oaked pilsner is quite the treat and one of those wordly beer experience that has to be tried once.

90 Minute tour. Do it for the beer. 150Kr. and was charged extra for taking pictures on the tour. Our guide memorized the story from a script and was not enthusiatic about what she was doing. Well worth for the few ounces of beer though. It was also avaliable in the Resturant Na Spilze in the basement, so if you dont have 90 minutes you can walk in and taste the tank ulfiltered edition which is just as good! A must visit in Plzen

The beginning of the tour if kind of fun. The high-tech video is entertaining even if a little on the brain-washing side of things. Still, it provides an entertaining and instructive background of this legendary brewery. The installations are impressive to say the least. But things get interesting once you hit the underground. Quite an experience. And that oak-barrel fermented Pilsner Urquell that you drink while freezing in this wet underground maze is one of the few rare beers lived up to the hype. One of the best “Thirst-beer” I’ve had. Really worth it. Inquire about hours. They had 3 tours a day when I was there.

When you are in the Czech Republic and as special in Plzen, you have to go to the brewery. It’s a big one, and it’s nice to see, no great diverence with other breweries. But the 9 kilometres corridors underground, with the big wooden barrels is impressive. And then to taste the Pilsner Urquell Kvasnicovy (unfilitered) is great.

For a beer geek this is a pilgrimage. The history, the miles of cellars, the wooden fermenters make it a must. But it’s also the most expensive brewery tour I’ve ever been on, 150 CZK (US$10), and for that you will get about 4 ounces of beer...unfiltered PU straight from the lagering tank, the best PU I’ve had and probably the best beer I tried in the whole Czech Rep. And if you want to bring a camera, they charge you extra for that. Seriously, most megabrewery tours the world over are free, or much cheaper than this. The guide was reciting a memorized script and didn’t know anything beyond that.

OK we got the special tour - so nothing about that....... just one thing: The unfiltrated Urquell is fantastic, I had 2-3 pints of it and wasn’t interested in stopping there.......
