A nice place, and rally not that hard to find. Just use the tram to save your legs. I found this place nice, and their beers were outstanding. I want to go back and taste a few more as soon as possible.

Their beers are just about the best available in Prague! A must visit, though it might feel quite touristy. Good food and service.

Sat outside under an umbrella on a hot day, large group of silver-haired tourists had just beat me to the last free spots inside (and those old birds were loud!), a dark and cool chamber mixing cloister and beer hall sensibilites. Service was fantastic. Hard to locate - try finding this on a tourist map, I dare you. Lots of food with beer as an ingredient. Above all, go for the fantastic tmavé after clambering up that hill!

Nice place, but not the easiest place to find. Lots of tour groups arounds... it seems if you are not in a group you have to sit outside (which was fine for us). Service was just OK, but the food was very good. Beer was great as well.

NIc eplaced, a little difficult to reach, but they have good beers. The problem is with their own beers, there is no way to know which is which.

A little expensive, but a nice setting in this very small brewpub. English menus, but the descriptions are poor, but then it is my fault for not speaking Czech. Service was not especially friendly but it was adequate. I didn’t see the beer hall I read about, supposedly the largest in the Czech Republic. Very expensive beer by Czech standards, but also a larger than average selection for Prague. p This is an easy place to reach on foot after a morning at Prague Castle. If you have a map you should have no trouble. The famous library is only across the courtyard from the brewpub.

O.K., a typical modern brewpub with a large, quite good restaurant next door. In this place in the very neighbourhood of the Strahov Abbey You can find some of the best made "home-brew" beers in the czech republic. The prices are "touristy", but the beer is good and the meals tasty. Worth a detour !

The dumplings filled with fruit were quite nice, as were the crepe thingies we ate. I stopped by on Christmas Day and Klasterni Pivovar was one of the only places in Prague that I couldn’t smell the person sitting at the next table. Went at 11am, so the crowd was small and mellow. Charming atmosphere and three beers were available - all good, none great. Can’t complain. Enjoyed the atmosphere a lot. Many would love their beers, it’s just that the alcohol content was pretty high, which isn’t my thing but may be yours. Next to a big old church with gobs of history. Easily accessible by tram line 22 or 23 from downtown Prague (which takes you up a big hill to get to the Strahov Abbey). Enjoy.

An excellent brewpub in the grounds of the Strahov Abbey which is difficult to find but definitely worth the effort. We broke off from a tour of the castle to find it and after a long walk through the wind and rain, the sight of and aroma from the two large copper brewing tanks just inside the door made it all worthwhile. Recharged with coffee and brandy we set about the main event, the beer. Both the light and dark were excellent and brewed under the name Svaty (Saint) Norbert. Bottled take-outs are also available. There is a good menu and I was intrigued by the Sword of Charles IV, which turned out to be generous portions of different meats skewered onto an eighteen inch silver sword, excellent presentation.
As well as the copper brew tanks there is an impressive looking bar and the walls are adorned with old photos and posters giving a real sense of the building’s history. The staff are friendly and all in all it’s a great place to spend a few hours, we actually spent six hours there. Take my advice and go there…. but get a cab!

Very expensive beer for Prague, even for Prague brewpubs (49Kc for 0,4L). Interesting beer cuisine and diverse food menu of average to good quality. Outside terrace is pleasant, service is usually courteous and the waiters can speak English. They brew a solid Jantar and Tmavé, but their Easter special is a world-class Pilsener-style lager. They sell swing-top bottles of their beers at outrageous prices for the Czech Republic (100Kc for 0,5L). Good brewpub to quench your thirst once you’ve hiked the Mala Strana to Hradcany, or Petrin Hill.
