Pilsner Urquell Reverts to Brown Bottles

News: April 2015

SABMiller has revealed that its premium Czech lager Pilsner Urquell will now be sold in brown glass bottles in the UK.

The switch to the original brown bottle from green glass, which many drinkers consider inadequate in protecting beer from the effects of bright light, has been made, according to the company, to celebrate the heritage and authenticity of Pilsner Urquell, which was the world's first-ever golden lager.

The new bottles will begin arriving in UK outlets next month.
