After a 30 beers rating during one week in Prague, Svatý Nobert became the best we had have...ever.
We were even offered to buy the beer in small barrels (ask the blonde waiter), but we had to say no due to logistic problems.
If you don’t try this beer, you won’t know what beer is.

Regular 4 types (Jantar, Dark, Weisse and IPA) often supplemented by seasonal beers brewed at least once in 2 months. Its variety goes from Brown Ale to Weizenbock and Christmas Doppelbock. Each year Brewmaster tries to come up with something else than previous year. Perhaps most striking is un-compromising quality of the beers served here. Never had any bad surprise. Out of Prague Brewpubs my No. 1.

Wow. super beers. I especially appreciate the effort to break the svetle / tmave / polotmave hegemony with brews such as an all-Saaz nitrogen-poured IPA and a seasonal "autumn dark" dunkle bock. Speaking of autumn, the large heated terrasse is a nice place to enjoy those magnificent brews on a coldish day. Accompanied by a hot onion soup and you are in heaven, which is probably the desired effect since you are in a monastery.

Visited the brewpub on 12th and 14th July 2010. Was very impressed by the greater beer range. The IPA could only be described as nectar, full of rich hoppiness; the standard amber and dark tmavy ale were as good as I remembered them from 2004 if not better. There was also a wheatbeer, albeit on the sweet side.
Food was excellent on both visits, staff conversant in English, and of course the location is idyllic.
The best way to reach here is to get the No 22 tram to Pohorelec and walk up the steps through a doorway in the high wall. At the top of the steps turn right and walk past VELKA Klasterni Restaurace. Do not confuse the two. Velka is often full of tourists and shows sports on TV, and only has two beers. The photos above should help you find this pub.
And you’ll be glad you went.

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Prague. The people were extremely nice, the food was great, and the beer was tasty. The ambiance of the monestary surrounding the place is incredible, and it is only a short walk up the street to the castle. They had three beers on draft, and the smoked porter available in bottles. Everything seemed rather inexpensive, but maybe slightly more for Prague standards. This place was great.

Brewpub plus restaurant (the latter having been a refectary I believe) on a hill with beautiful view. Service was rather matter-of-fact but it suited the place. The goulash was very good. And the beer was terrific. Three regulars, always one seasonal. In particular I was surprised a vienna good be this excellent and their IPA... oh well, a must try!

I visited in July 2009. Ha, I cheated, I took the tram uphill around the Castle to visit the Klasterni Strahov. Evan Rail’s "Good Beer Guide Prague" led me here, and although he warned that service is sometimes poor, I found it to be very good, especially after charming the young server with some poorly pronounced greetings and a smile. They’re really quite nice here. Oh yes, the beer. Very tasty! My friend tried a St. Norbert dark lager and was very impressed - I went for a delicious semi-dark amber. The copper vats were just beyond arm’s reach, so it didn’t travel far in its brief life. I then moved to their wheat beer - one of the nicest wheats I’ve ever tasted. This stop was a prelude to the even better U Cerneho Vola just down the street. It’s then an easy stagger back to the tram stop for the journey back to the river. Highly recommended.

We almost didn’t make it here as we were crunched for time during our Prague stay, but very happy we did. A very lovely courtyard seating area (with heat lamps for the cool evenings). Plenty of indoor seating, too, but we prefer outdoor. A couple of patrons brought their dogs and no one seemed to mind, which was nice (they even had a dog bowl for them). The food was very good- I had the goulash and was very happy I did. They had four beers on when we visited; weizen, dark lager, amber lager, and IPA. The IPA was very nice, but muted bitterness by American IPA standards. Still, it was a nice change of pace from all the lagers we’d been having. The amber lager was decent, but the weizen and dark lager were my favorites. Both were excellent. The whole place closed at 10p, which was a little sad because we got there late, but I got to try all the beers anyhow. For all the beers, two dinners, and a starter, we came away at less than 500 Korunas, which isn’t bad considering the prices of Prague. Will make sure to visit again if I make it to Prague again. Excellent.
