A classic place to take the first beer in Prague. Ok, it can be crowded by tourists, but the food is decent and the beers are really good. The Svaty Norbert IPA is my favourite, but the seasonal Masopustni Polotmava was a pleasant surprise. A nice walk down to Stare Mesto, passing by the Prague Castle and over the Charles Bridge.

I quite like this place. Potentially it could be a dodgy, expensive and unpleasant tourist trap, due to the position and the easy foreign targets, but somehow manages not to be bad at all. The beer, however expensive, is truly excellent, from the unfiltered Amber to IPA. The food is good and comes at acceptable prices, and the service is normally nice and friendly, all considering. It is also a place where one can go just for a beer or two and there are a few Czech people doing so, and this is a good sign!

I go to Strahov mostly for the food actually, its def worth it. The beers are great too, my favorite is the St Norbert double IPA. A bit pricy, but you cant blame them as the place is just above the Prague castle (rent must be steep). The atmosphere is a bit touristy, not met many local regulars there, but I might have been unlucky? Nice garden for hot summer days.

Very touristy place with quite arrogant staff and nice location. But beers are superb. Anyway, worth for a visit, at least to buy bottled beers for home consumption.

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.

Definitely worth a stop if you are in the castle area. Nice location, but pretty crowded. I enjoyed the beer, but the "Brewery plate" was not worth waiting 45 minutes for. It was nothing wrong with it, but it’s strange that they need 45 minutes to prepare a cold plate. The beer was worth waiting for...

Hard to find place. had to ask locals for directions. It was busy and tables had reserved tags on it that allready expired. When asked if we could sit there we were refused. Staff was not polite nor caring. If not excellent beer tehy had we would leave this palce for more friendly one.

Great place within the monastery as you walk up the hill from Prague Castle towards the Petrin Tower. Looks like a bit of a tourist trap, but I’m glad my girlfriend told me to stop because the beer was good and the patio was lovely. Just outside is a gorgeous view overlooking Prague. Their usual brews are tasty, including the IPA and dark beer. Definitely worth a stop if you are anywhere up the hill in Prague.

This is a small brewpub located in the monastery courtyard just a short walk from Prague Castle. To the left of the space is the brewery, which is adorned nicely with copper tanks and a well finished bar. In the middle is a smaller sub-courtyard with plenty of picnic table style seating, and to the right is a large indoor beer hall. Starting off, the food was very good. You’ll find typical Czech cuisine (read: pork, potatoes, dumplings), but also a few unique twists, and a good selection of "beer cuisine" (i.e. food made with beer). The three house beers that I tried were all good, but far from outstanding. Service was prompt and attentive, despite it getting quite packed as we sat there. Deinitely a worthy stop while you’re in the castle area anyway.

(Visited 04/2009): We stumbled upon the Klašterní Pivovar while walking around after a trip to the Prague Castle, despite it being on the list of places we wanted to check out. Must have been fate. The brewpub is located on top of a hill next to a pretty monastery off Strahovské nádvoří. The entrance appears to be gated so unsure as to whether you can drive to it.
There is a small interior bar and a big patio, which is where we sat. The menus outline the brewing process which is pretty cool. On our visit there were only 3 of their beers on draught, including a special Easter beer. They also sell bottles to go. All of the beers were good.
Service was good on a weekend afternoon. Our server spoke a little English and was friendly.
We did not try any food on this visit.
Overall this place was probably our favorite beer spot because of the perfect weather, good beer and nice atmosphere. The fact that a group of monks came from the monastery next door for beers while we were there said it all. Definitely worth seeking out.
