The first beer place I’ve managed to visit on this latest Prague trip. So, this was a 5 minutes walk from our ho(s)tel. The working hours clashed completely, however, with our itinerary, so I managed to get there, with several friends in tow (to teach them what proper Czech beer tastes like :)), less then minutes before it was closing on Friday. Oops. So, you enter a more or less big room, with shelves stacked by a good selection of Czech beers from, presumably, Czech-owned breweries, but a nice little varied selection of foreign stuff, ranging from common (Paulaners) to damn rare (Vasileostrovskaya Red Ale !!). Same with the Czech stuff. You can get common things found in, say, the local Billa (Bakalář) but damn rare stuff as well. The "taproom" looked cute and I would’ve had a beer there had it not been so late. Staff... didn’t strike us as 200% friendly, but I doubt I would be if a bunch of people stormed into my store with no precise idea of what they’re going to get 5 minutes before closing time. The owner behind the counter only gave some comments here & there, and I do trust Ogi that he’s normally cool to have a conversation with. A younger guy tried to help, with seemingly slightly worse English than the owner, and keeping on recommending pale beers and the most common stuff they had. -_- I’m positive he was just trying to help though, though seriously, if someone takes a strong dark seasonal and an altbier first, what are the odds they are looking for beers, especially pale lagers, found in any bigger and some smaller supermarkets? Again, not taking it against him - if it was like this at some normal hour it’d be 5ish, keeping it at 7. 4 beers ended up something like 129 koruny. Which seems slightly overblown looking at their prices at some other places - the lack of any price tags IS something that can be taken against the store. Anyway, if I was in the area again, I’d visit it after some other stops, and I’ll definitely rerate in better circumstances (for better or for worse). It seems to be a great place for the neighborhood and would stand out in most cities anywhere. But there seem to be slightly better choices overall.

Old beer shop wich is qiute cozy, dark wood, beer related stuff on the walls etc. small living room like barroom in the back, but with only1 tap. Selection is mostly made up of Czech beers that are all seen elsewhere before, and for the major part well behind its prime. Service was rather crappy, we where the only people there, and wasnt even greeted we we entered, no questions if we needed help, just a half pissed "maybe next time" when we left without buying anything. Im sorry, but there wont be a next time

A place to find all the czech beers that you are looking for. Take care, you’ll 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 micro’s 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 micro’s 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.

YULbier  (250) Montreal, | January 24, 2012| Updated April 3, 2012
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. Don’t 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. Didn’t check the freshness of the beers, but there’s 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 (14€). 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 can’t talk to me while you’re thirsty" and brought us two glasses of Rohozec Skalák Světlý Speciál 13°, 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.
