Do you mean Plzen, Czech republic?

All hale to the ale! :rolleyes:

To me Pilzen Is what Lourdes Is to the Catholics, and Mecca Is to the Muslims.

I need to do a beer pilgrimage there soon.

Have you read the International forums on Czech Rep yet? Pilzen Is on the tourist track, but nowhere as popular as Prague, so prices might still be fair, not far from zie German frontier either.

It's a flying 48hr or 72 hr visit.

Any quick tips or contacts?

It's worth going there for the brewery tour alone but I'm not so sure about punting.

I did the Pilsner Urquel brwery tour about 10 years ago in Plzen, and what a waste of time! About 3 hours and all you get freebie was a small glass!!! That was the only reason I was there :rolleyes:

Now many many years ago as a boy scout (in the early 80s) we did a camp to Belgium and did the Stella Artois brwery tour and the whole scout group got hammered at the end - oh those were the days ;)
