Ambassadors will be on hand to share our rich heritage and offer out complimentary half pints allowing you to savour the taste of the world’s first golden beer. And why will they be there at 18:42? Because that’s the year Pilsner Urquell was first produced.

In 1842, Josef Groll brewed the  world’s first golden beer and revolutionized an entire industry. Pilsner  Urquell, translated as “original source,” remains a revered beer, both  for its importance in beer history, as well as its intricate brewing  process, including the use of soft water, Saaz hops, pale malts, and triple  decoction.

“All brewers are passionate  about their beer, but Pilsner Urquell takes it one step further” – Charlie Boorman, The Times
