We recently cherry-picked a collection of our team members to fly to the home of pilsner, Plzen. Sales Managers, Bartenders and Training Managers spent two days finding out everything there is to know about our favourite beer.

The team took a tour of the Pilsner Urquell brewery, from which we drive our fresh unpasteurised tank bier every week to our flagship venue, Albert’s Schloss. They learnt all about the history of Pilsner Urquell and their modern innovations and were able to sample some bier straight from the source.

The team took a historical tour around the city, with an opportunity to take in the stunning Czech architecture.

But we all know what they really had in mind, and it wasn’t long until it was back to business. The team visited their Lokal and practised pouring the perfect pint of pilsner, with a ninety-degree pour and a sizeable amount of foam.

The team sampled their creations and took to the night to explore everything Plzen had to offer. With sore heads and fresh ideas from their trip, they landed back in Manchester ready to implement what they had discovered.
