Pilsner Urquell –an icon of the world’s brewing craft. In a world where everything changes, Pilsner Urquell remains unchanged. From its inception in 1842. it is brewed following the very same recipe and the same regional ingredients: soft Plzeň water, Žatec hops and light barley malt. The passion of Pilzno brewers and the unique brewing process, including burning the vats with open fire and the double hopping process, is the secret of the extraordinary character of the world’s first golden pilsner. Its taste managed to combine the ideal balance of what is seemingly contradictory: caramel sweetness coming from barley and hoppy bitterness.
