This is an extremely rare opportunity to taste Unfiltered Unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell served straight from a wooden cask which has been delivered to us direct from the Brewery in Pilsen. This beer is not usually available anywhere other than the brewery in the Czech Republic and has rarely been seen in the UK due to the exceptionally high cost of transporting it and its short shelf life. This beer is delicious. I have had the opportunity to drink it on a handful of select industry occasions, including in the brewery itself (you can read how wonderful that experience was in this previous blog). I am very pleased that you will now also have the opportunity to try this very special beer.
We will be serving a two course meal to accompany this treat. Tickets are limited and cost £17.50. They are allocated on a first pay first reserved basis. All monies will need to be collected in advance.
