The tour of the brewery starts at the Visitor’s Centre, in the building housing the original wort cooler. The guide will lead you to areas associated with the history of the Pilsner Urquell legend as well as to areas where beer is brewed today. In addition, you’ll see one of the most modern bottling lines in Europe, a panorama cinema, a unique exhibit of beer ingredients and an historical and a modern brewhouse. The highlight of the tour is a visit to the historical beer cellars, where visitors of drinking age can taste unfiltered, unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell tapped directly from an oak lager barrel. Even on the hottest of summer days, though, be sure to take a warm jacket with you. It is only 4°C (39°F) in the cellars.
