This is a perfectly good neighborhood shop. The selection is more than adequate, and if you’re used to what you find in any potraviny or even the large supermarkets, it’s wonderful. The shopkeeper is very nice and more than helpful. She speaks enough English to assist in most issues/questions you may have, for those of you not quite functional in your Czech. Though the selection is largely lagers, there are some fine exceptions, incl. Pardubicky Porter, Primtor stout, and even an IPA. Recommended!

Deliciousness. Great find tucked away near the Charles Bridge and a promenade overlooking the river (which is also a good scenic place to drink the beers you buy here). The guy there is helpful, but thinks every beer there is good, particularly the expensive ones. There may actually be well over the 100 bottles cited here. Great for Czech beer selection, but mid-ranged in price for Prague. Beware the clear bottles, as usual, but there are otherwise good finds here.

I tricked the wife off the main street( she was determined to get to the castle early before the crowds) to get a strategically placed ice cream cone from the store next to this little hole in the wall. It is basically an arched hallway with well presented shelves full of above average beers in both .3L and .5L bottles. I scored a few beauties. The on duty cashier also presented some harder to find glasses for me and I scored a few nice openers as well. I was quite satisfied with both the prices and selection.

(September 2006) Small shop with very friendly and helpful owner. Smaller selection than Pivni Galerie but they sometimes have beers not available at Pivni Galerie. Well worth a visit!
(October 2007) My second visit to this shop. Now there are much more rare beers on offer than last year, even some which I didn’t find at Pivni Galerie nor in Pivovarsky Klub. Well worth a visit.
(October 2010) Even though I’ve had over 500 different Czech beers it is possible to find something new here. Friendly staff.

Small and simple shop with a good opening hours, and daily! Not like Pivni Galerie...The beer list is short, but you can also find nice beers. Friendly and knowledgeable middle age saleswomen who speaks english. I liked this place, i have bought a lot of micros.

For the walk up the hill to Klasterni Pivovar Strahov this beer shop is certainly worth a couple minutes of your time. Honestly I wasn’t really interested in bottled Czech beer, I mean I’m here because I want the stuff as fresh as possible, and combine that with my Czech/Slavik not being so great, I didn’t find anything on my travel lists that scored that high. I was hoping to find a couple of Baltic porters but that seemed difficult. Nonetheless, the selection is definitely good, but prices are above average due to proximity to the tourist areas on the western side of the Charles Bridge.

Quite small place with czech beers only. I liked it and the guy weorking was really nice. Guess you can find nmostof the beers worth drinking in here. Just watch out for thir lousy plastic bags!!! The handle cant stand much. The first time I managed to save my beers, the second time three dark czerch lagers were wasted at the Ladvi Metro-station...

Medium selection, very good location for tourists, first "real" left after crossing the Charles Bridge into Malá Strana. Friendly English spoken. This suffers strongly in comparison to Pivní Galerie, but it is still worth a stop and the better of the two if time is an issue.
