Old-times Czech pub will make visitors feel like beer drinkers from the end of the 19th century
After several years of refurbishment, Plzensky Prazdroj is opening a traditional Czech tap-room “Na Parkanu” today. It is the newest addition to the Brewery Museum in Plzen. It is part of the exposition, however it is opened to both the museum visitors and to the general public, so that everyone will have the opportunity to travel in time to enjoy the unique atmosphere of a traditional Czech pub from the end of the 19th century.
The Old-times Czech tap-room Na Parkanu will offer a wide selection of beers from the Plzensky Prazdroj brand portfolio served by the tap-masters from the brewery pub. And on top of that, it will serve a world-wide rarity – unfiltered and unpasterized yeast lager, just as it was traditionally produced by the Pilsner Brewery before filtration and pasterization was introduced in the beginning of the 20th century. There is also a variety of traditional Czech pub-meals from the same period of time on the menu.
For the next three weeks the whole pub is going to go through a trial-period. “We will mainly be testing the whole operation of the pub and we would also like to see how the locals will like it, to get some feedback,” said Jindriska Eliaskova, the cultural heritage manager, “It will also provide time to finish the refurbishment of the museum exposition on the house yards completely, that will show ancient walls and the hops-house, just to name a few.” The visitors will be able to witness the whole refurbished expositions including the tap-room for some unique beer and food from the beginning of June.
