Description: THE ORIGINAL PILSNER
In 1842, at our brewery in Plzeň, brewer Josef Groll introduced the world to the first golden ‘pilsner’ lager, and changed beer forever. His invention soon became the
most popular style of beer on the planet.
We’ve brewed Pilsner Urquell in the same brewery using the same recipe for over 175 years. Today, we still insist on using traditional methods, like triple decoction and parallel brewing in wooden lagering barrels. It takes longer but means
we never compromise on our taste.
AND PERFECTLY POURED
A thick head of dense, wet foam seals in the freshness, protects our delicate flavours from oxygen and creates the perfect balance in our beer, so every sip tastes perfect.
In every sip of Pilsner Urquell you’ll notice a refreshing crispness from natural carbonation, then subtle caramel tones and a clean finish with a pleasing hoppy bitterness.
BREWED THE SAME WAY SINCE 1842
During the brewing process, we heat a portion of our mash three times to add more flavour and colour to our beer. This is called triple decoction.
