Brewery museum in Plzeň
The story of beer from antiquity to the present is told by the Brewery Museum, based in the original brewing-house in the historic centre of Plzeň. This entertaining, educational exhibition presents production processes, the secrets of production and different ways of serving and drinking this hops-based drink over the centuries.
Visitors can view, for example, mediaeval cellars, the interior of a village pub from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century and an overview of drinking-vessels through the ages. Another part of the museum is devoted to collection of beer-related items and curiosities, as well as a functional model of the brewing-room of a steam brewery with a capacity of thirty litres of beer per batch.
