The Brewery

Welcome to Plzensky Prazdroj , Pilsner Urquell’s historic brewery!

The distinctive gateway to Plzensky Prazdroj, Pilsner Urquell's historic brewery are neo-renaissance double-arched gates, built in 1892 to mark 50 years since the first batch of Pilsner beer filled the air of the Burgher's Brewery on 5th October 1842.  Our water tower was built in 1907 and its design is reminiscent of a traditional Dutch lighthouse.

Row upon row of beer casks line the lagering caves beneath the Pilsner Urquell brewery.  The sandstone cellars of Pilsner Urquell form a labyrinth of passageways, vaults and wells built below Pilsen as early as the 14th Century.
