The brewery tour is rather impressive here and gets nearly magical once you start walking the underground hallways lined with immense wooden kegs. It takes a while before you get to this underground (over an hour), but the setting is simply perfect for a glass of unfiltered, oak-fermented Pilsner Urquell, straight from the barrel. If they set up a pub down here, it would surely become a primo destination in this beery country, but as is, you have to get the entire tour whenever you want one glass of this fantastic olden PUrquell. And you can’t get seconds...

Établissement visité le mecredi 19 mars vers 16h. Ambiance: Jusqu’à ce jour il s’agit de ma visite de brasserie la plus intéressante. Après un court vidéo promotionnel on fait le tour de la nouvelle et de l’ancienne brasserie ainsi que les tunnels sous la ville. Service: Les visites sont disponible en plusieurs langue pendant la saison estivale. Nous avons fait la visite anglais. Sélection: Lors de la visite on déguste une seule bière mais il s’agit d’une exclusivité. La Pilsner Urquell non filtrée et vieillie en fût de chêne dans les tunnels de la brasserie. Nourriture: Un restaurant est situé dans un bâtiment annexe à la brasserie. (81e rating d’établissement)

One of the few brewery tours in the world that’s actually worth doing. The brewhouse itself is fairly standard, but it’s the cellars which set this apart. There’s kilometres and kilometres of them, and they have some cool pictures from the floods a few years back. And yeah, you get to taste the old style beer from the wooden fermenters, which is bloody good but you only get a small cup and it’s served at lagering temp (i.e. too cold). The regular PU tastes bloody good at Na Spilce (the on-site restaurant) too.

An excellent tour of a very large brewery. The video part of the tour is not all that interesting, but the trip around through the bottling line and the old cellars is great. The guide we had was very knowledgable and the glass of Pilsner Urquell that we had in the cellars was a wonderful beer that was quite surprising in taste, a lot hoppier than any I had later in the restaurant. The restaurant on premises is a good place to go after the tour for more beer ad some very good food.

One of the places, that every beer-lover should have seen: pretty coppers in the brewhouse itself, nice spicy smell everywhere, well made film about the history (in several languages) and the present of the Urquell-Brauerei and, the highlight, an unique visit to the cold old cellars, where a very small part of the brewery’s production is fermented in the traditional way in wooden barrels. A fresh, superb, unfiltered Pilsener Urquell is waiting for You there. Worth a journey....českemu pivu zdar !

I can very much recommend the brewery visit with the great walk of the cold cellars and non-filtered Plzensky Prazdroj straight from the huge wooden casks. The gift shop has a huge selection of stuff if you’re a collector.

Beautiful visit of the brewery and history of Pilsner Urquell. In the cellars, you can taste unfiltered Pilsner Urquell out of the original barrels
