Pilsner Urquell from the tank now available in nearly 90 restaurants outside Czechia

22.12.2017 Pilsner Urquell

Admirers of the premium Pilsner Urquell from the tank can enjoy the beer in tank pubs outside the Czech Republic as well. A total of 88 tank pubs and restaurants offering Pilsen’s premium lager are now available in nine European countries. “More tank pubs will be opened in the following months,” says Tomáš Mráz, Sales Director of Plzeňský Prazdroj.

Slovakia operates 42 tank pubs that offer Pilsner Urquell lager, the highest number in abroad. Customers can enjoy lager from the tank in Bratislava as well as in other cities, such as Košice, Žilina, Poprad, Nitra, Trnava, Trenčín, Prešov, and Piešťany.

The second ranking country is the United Kingdom with 17 tank pubs; two are currently open in Ireland. Pilsner Urquell from the tank is available especially in London, which has nine such establishments. Others are in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Edinburgh; Ireland’s two tank pubs are located in Dublin. Germany has seven tank outlets in Berlin and Hamburg; five are open in Austria (Vienna and Graz) and Poland (Warsaw, Wroclaw and Krakow). Others are in Italy, Sweden, and Hungary.

Plzeňský Prazdroj started exporting tank beer as early as 2009. That year, the first two tank outlets serving Pilsner Urquell opened in Bratislava and Vienna.

The quality of beer in abroad tank outlets in is monitored by a team of Pilsen’s brewmasters. Václav Berka, Senior Trade Brewmaster of Plzeňský Prazdroj, has recently returned from an inspection trip abroad. “The British are accustomed primarily to top-fermented beers that are offered with nearly no foam. Nonetheless, they are searching for new, unusual tastes, and our lager, tapped in a single pour with rich, wet foam, is becoming more and more popular. Our tank pubs are almost constantly packed with guests; this also holds in abroad,” Václav Berka says.
