A place to find all the czech beers that you are looking for. Take care, youíll find only the beers brewed by breweries unredeemed by foreign companies!

Quick in and out on the way home. Solid beer selection with neutral service. Bit out of the way on quiet street. Some beers seemed to be past prime.

Hmmh. Old couple and a beerstore. No Czech microís and most of the bottles were old/out of date. Limited hopening hours. Near Holosovice (1,5KM). Only bought 1 beer. Crappy and out of touch with the wave of Czech microís opening . .

Probably the best selection of bottled beer to buy in Prague. Two beers on in the tasting room usually from Czech Micros (One dark one light) that can be drunk while contemplating which bottles to take home. An essential visit when in Prague.

Tiny pub/bottle shop which can accomodate max. 25 persons, and serving 2 beers on the pub side. You really feel like you are drinking in the living room of the owner, with no music, which can feel quite awkward. Donít expect to linger. In the shop side, they have a quite extensive beer selection, mostly czech.

Avoid this. Decent selection of macros, at OK prices. But most of the beers are more than a year past their sell by date.
This is cheating their customers, and there is no excuse for this. They may be smiling and happy to put the beers in boxes - but their beers are not drinkable. Several years in bright light would kill off robust beers - not to mention pale lagers!

Nice selection of beers in the shop, very quiet atmosphere in the tasting room, where they serve only two draught beers. Friendly, helpful staff and reasonable prices. Didnít check the freshness of the beers, but thereís no real point making your way out here if they really are past their best by date.

Very good beer selection; about 120 Czech and 70 rather standard Belgian and German beers. Cheaper than Galerie Piva near Charles Bridge. Bought 13 beers for 366Kč (14Ä). In backroom there was a Club PPG (local beer lovers society) meeting. We started a conversation with the owner about small Czech breweries that are standing up large multinational breweries. After few minutes he said: "You canít talk to me while youíre thirsty" and brought us two glasses of Rohozec SkalŠk Světlż SpeciŠl 13į, and after a while he served us beer schnapps (Pivovica). The owner (Petr) is genuin beer enthusiast and we really have enjoyed that hour spent with him.

small shop with a pretty decent selection. they had a lot of czech brews, a belgian section, and a german section. beers were priced relatively fairly (about 65Kc, or roughly $3-4 for a .33L bottle). iíve seen some of these beers in the states for significantly more. just a runaround: orval, delirium, chimay, rochefort, kwak, unibroue, primator. just one 6x3ft shelf for the belgians and one for the germans. they also have a small section off to the side where you can taste (though iíve never tried it). the czech beer section is the biggest (obviously), and those are all about 15-30Kc ($1-2). lots of brews from lesser known czech breweries. about 70% of the selection is czech. the owner was very kind, helpful, and knowledgeable, and he spoke decent english. it is a bit out of the way (take the 3 tram from downtown and itíll get you about 2 blocks away), but definitely worth the trip. they have an okay selection of glassware, but nothing amazing (just your standard chimay glasses and crap, nothing rare). best bottle shop iíve found so far in prague, so give it a try.
UPDATE: spoke to the owner and he said a new shipment of belgians is due at the beginning of november...

Went here on our way home from Prague. It was closed... so we went to the great, modern restaurant further down the street (Pier 22, I think). Good food, friendly service, nice prices... well... Pivni Galerie opened in the meantime. Good parking facilities though you have to pay (a limited amount). Nice selection inside - lots of hard-to-get Czech beers as well as a decent Belgian selection (even some Iíve havenít had). Bought home a few plastic bags. Fair prices. Service was more or less mute as they probably wondered what I was doing with my 4-5 sheets of paper inked up with lines and beer names.
