Pilsner Urquell Brewery, Czech Republic - 11th November 2010

By: dzejna

Hi everybody,
this week my host´s husband went to a scientific conference held in Plzen city. You may not know that famous „pilsner“ or „pils“ beer all around the world has been named after Plzen (originally Pilsen in German).

Most of the time we spent in a hotel, while our host daddy was listening to speeches and presenting his research. (He is sort of crazy scientist working with something like acoustic emission, you know?!)

However, part of venue program was an excursion into the infamous Pilsner Urquell Brewery. And we have loads of images for you.

Check it out!

In the first hall we have seen the barley-malt preparation facility (there was a strange smell in the air that I have never experienced
before).

In the next hall, shiny copper boil tanks demonstrated original way
of brewing. They don´t use them anymore, most of the production
comes from modern, PC-controlled stainless steel tanks. The old
ones, however, are much nicer.

Here, you can see me on a drainage valve that I tried to turn.
However, it was too heavy for me.  The guide suddenly saw me
there so I jumped back into the host daddy pocket.

This is a dispatcher cabin with all the PCs and control systems.
Booooring!

These are the new steel tanks I mentioned earlier.

Brewery underground consists of many kilometers of corridors and
cellars. We have seen giant wooden barrels. There, some special
beers are aging.

We have been even offered a small taste-beer. This beer was
non-filtered and non-pasterized. You cannot imagine how tasty and
aromatic it was! Yummy!

That’s it for now! Take care and stay tuned, because more is coming from

Thiele
