As a precaution regarding coronavirus, we have already taken a decision to cancel the tours of the Gambrinus Brewery, Radegast Brewery and Velké Popovice. As of March
Plzeňský Prazdroj had an exceptionally strong year – in the local market, it sold 7.2 million hectolitres of beer, 3.8 % up on the previous year.
Prague Castle and Pilsner Urquell, all that is inscribed in the name of the Pilsen restaurant “Na Hradčanské” in Prague. It is located right next the Prague subway station of the same name, on a tourist path leading to the most popular Czech monument. After a several-months long reconstruction, the place has opened to the public, offering a unique gastronomical menu and Pilsner Urquell beer.
Work of master coopers of Pilsner Urquell came under the scrutiny of Josef Hrůza today. On the courtyard of the brewery, they rolled out of the brewery cellars pitched oak barrels used for maturing of Pilsner Urquell in the historic cellars of the brewery. Beer brewed according to the traditional recipe, fermented and matured in oak barrels and tubs in original conditions, is used by Pilsen master brewers for regular comparison with the beer made by modern technological procedures.
The tours at Plzeňský Prazdroj were visited by a record number of tourists, about 2 percent more than during the preceding year. A number of novelties played a role in this increase. The absolute hit was the special event at Radegast brewery – a night tour with a tasting of the Radegast Gloomy Bitter. Besides that, Plzeňský Prazdroj breweries attract a wide public audience to a whole line of cultural events every year. The most visited ones last year included Pilsner Fest in Pilsen, The Day of Radegast in Nošovice, and The Billy Goat’s Day in Velké Popovice.
