Beer in Prague

Mar 31, 2007  Beer Tourist and Craft Beer Lover
4.0 of 5 bubbles based on 10 votes

Beer is everywhere in Prague, but it can be a challenge to find a a bar or restaurant serving more than Budvar, Pilsner Urquell, and Kozel. All three are fine beers, but they only represent the surface of Czech brewing talent. This list includes some of the best places to buy and drink beer in Prague, and is not intended to be inclusive of establishments that are especially fun or historic or full of character, although some of these establishments have those qualities.

  • 1. The Strahov Monastic Brewery (Klasterni Pivovar)
    The Strahov Monastic Brewery, Prague, Bohemia

    Easily visited after Prague Castle. They serve simple but tasty meals, and the best Dunkel in Prague. Beers are expensive by Czech standards, but still a bargain for an American or British traveler. Take a few minutes to see the library.

  • 2. Pivni Galerie

    This is a bottle shop and a bar. They have a few beers on draught, and hundreds of bottles of Czech beer never seen in the United States. Ask for help in making your selections. Opat and Krakonos were two of the best Bohemian Pilsners I have ever had and I found both here. This is away from the Center, and about a kilometer from the Holesovice train/metro station, but anyone looking for a good bottle selection will be happy they made the trip. I hear they have Westvleteren on occasion, and I found a few rare German beers including the Erdinger Winter hefeweizen. Very friendly atmosphere and almost all locals.

  • 3. Pivovarský Dùm

    A brewpub. The food is mediocre, but the beer is experimental and unusual. They do make an excellent dunkel, and an assortment of fruit and spiced beers. A nice atmosphere with friendly service. It gets crowded so expect to wait if you come at dinner. This brewpub is South of the center area, and easily visited before or after Vysherad and the Dancing House.

  • 4. Ferdinanda

    Centrally located between the main train station and Wenceslas square, Ferdinanda is a restaurant that serves the tasty, and hard to find Ferdinanda beers. The "Sedm Kuli" or Seven Bullets, is an excellent Vienna style beer. They also have a great dunkel, and a good pilsner and lager. The food is different from you will find in the center. Try the cold pickled sausage for an appetizer. Service spoke some English and was very friendly.

  • 8. U Fleku

    A pub just over 500 years old. They serve 1 beer to bus loads of tourists. Meals are also available. Be aware the shots are not free, no matter how hard the staff might insist you try one. Come for the high quality dunkel.
