Come to Plzeň in early October to celebrate the day that Czech beer changed the world, and discover why Czech beer is nicknamed liquid bread.

Journey for Czech Beer: Plzeň Celebrates 175 Years Since Brewing its First Beer Wednesday, 5 October 1842 – on this very day in the Plzeň brewery, German brewer Josef Groll brewed the very first Pilsner type beer in the world. However, it should be noted that his success came by mistake, in short thanks to the soft Plzeň water, high-quality Saaz (Žatec) hops and a new English malt processing method. Yet the quality of this new type of beer was unprecedented, and Pilsner Urquell became an inspiration for more than two thirds of the beer produced in the world today.
