Pilsner Urquell – an icon of global brewing

In a world where everything changes, Pilsner Urquell remains constant. From its inception in 1842. it is brewed according to a traditional recipe and from the same regional ingredients: soft Pilsen water, Żatec hops and light barley malt. The passion of Pilsen brewers and the unique brewing process, including burning the vats with live fire and the double hopping process, is the secret of the extraordinary nature of the world’s first golden pilsner. Its taste has managed to combine in a perfect balance what seemingly contradictory: caramel sweetness derived from barley and hop bitterness.
