Where our tour takes you
The Gambrinus Brewery, which the town of Plzeň is proud of, has been brewing your favourite beer since 1869. We will show you the brewery operations, raw materials, traditional techniques and modern technology. You will also learn how we monitor beer quality and will then enjoy some fun activities in the Gambrinus Arena.
You will enjoy the Gambrinus Brewery to the fullest.
We will take you to the heart of the brewery – the current brewing shop, which is capable of producing 12 brew batches per day (one batch contains 840 hl of cold wort). The Gambrinus Brewery has also reconstructed its original brewing shop from 1869, where you will enjoy Gambrinus beer at the end of the tour.
Beer tasting and tapping school
See for yourselves how we monitor the quality of Gambrinus beer. At the end of the tour, the Gambrinus Brewery has prepared a beer tasting and beer tapping school for you, supervised by our master brewer (only for those 18 years or age).
