Awful. Stunk to high heaven, barmaids were unhelpful and even managed to spill the beer all over me without an apology. The home beers range from mediocre to truly awful. I was excited about visiting, but what a massive let down.

This place is part of the PIV alliance, so you can expect beer in its freshest condition. Only problem, their home beers sucked. Big time. The guest beers were clearly the best options. I don’t recommend making the trip from Prague only to go there, but you can easily combine this visit with a visit to the nearby Karlstejn Castle. Also, a better option for eating in Beroun is the Blackdog Cantina, a burger joint run by an american expat. As for the Berounsky Medved, it will probably not be the highlight of your day...

We took the modern two story train from Praha to explore Beroun. It is about 10 minutes walking to Beroun main square. A nice little town with remains of an old city wall and two intact town gates. Back to the trainstation and heading for the brewery, just follow the big yellow signs with picture of a bear. You enter the scrap yard walking on old cobblestones and gravel/mud. My wife became skeptical, what kind of place is this! She breathed more easily when she entered the nice looking yellow building. In short: food was cheap, tasty and served in big portions. 3 beers on tap, varying from excellent to average. All in all, a nice half day trip from Praha. (Visited 24th February 2012)

Visited this place with gnoff, diar and DSG. After a nice beertasting in the train from Prague to here, we at first struggled a bit finding it, but the place was rather obvious and nice after finding out how to walk from the trainstop. Lots of old panzer- and warstuff in the yard. Very friendly service, though there was a slight languagebarrier. Beers were really good at the brewpub, and the food was also very pleasant for being the Czech republic. Nice decor inside.

As everyone else said, location.
If you think your lost, your spot on!
Just an easy 5 minutes walk west from the railway station, when you enter the scrap yard, you are there. Find your way to the nice building to the left, and once inside a different worlds opens up. This used to be an old sugar plant, which are now renovated and house the brewery and resaurant. Enormous wooden columns and beams make this a perfect location for a meal and some nice beers from the house.
This place seems popular amongst the locals, was almost filled up in lunchtime.
Good service, a little bit slow, but normal according to the number of people served. OK food, nothing extraordinary, rather big portions.

Close to the train station, but quite hard to find. I am wondering if the address is right at all. My GPS led me to the other side of the river, but in fact it is just a few hundred metres from the train station. It seems to be on the premises of a scrap yard. Seriously. Inside it is nice and the atmosphere is friendly. Average food.

I won’t try to make a good description of this pub location. Middle of nowhere loses its meaning here, you don’t even know where nowhere is when you get to this pub. In the middle of a scrap yard. Old rusty WWII tank and weapons on one side and a huge pile of detritus on the other, the view is like nothing you have ever seen. Interior is surprisingly warm and unsurprisingly authentic. IMPORTANT: From what we understood this brewpub doesn’t brew off-season. We were there in April and they only had two decent guest beers on tap. Supposedly they start brewing in May, I don’t know when they stop. 60 to 80 can sit on each of the two floors (upstairs was closed when we were there). Extensive food menu, very greasy, my goulash was below average. This place is a must, not for the beer, not for the food, not for the ambiance, but really for the location. Quite an experience.

Rather hard to find, even from the train station. Walk out from the main hall, turn left and then walk under the bridge. Strange surroundings with old tanks and stuff. OK food and beers. Quite cheap to buy take-away PET-bottles. Nice detour when going by train between Prague and Plzen.

A memorable brewpub, this is. As you walk in the direction you were told to walk, you constantly ask yourself: it can’t be here, can it? A muddy side road, huge apparently-abandoned buildings with broken windows, olden trucks, scrap everywhere...and a sign of a bear with a pint of beer with an arrow confirming you are on the right track. Following this sign, you soon encounter an old tank, heaps of wood, canons, and...scrap everywhere. Oh, and this white building in the middle of it all. Fascinating. The dark wooden interior with sculptures in the walls is strikingly beautiful and cozy for the area. The place was amazingly crowded for a mid-week lunch. The only downside was there weren’t any house beers available that day and we weren’t able to get an explanation from the Czech-speaking waitress. She was still able to tell us the house beers were coming back in May. In the meantime, they were serving Klaster’s 10-degree Svetlé and Chodovar’s Tmavé. Pints were 17Kc, so 1$ at the time I’m writing this. The smoked duck in a potato pancake I had was delicious, if not extremely fat. I’d come back here anytime just for the experience, but also because they must be brewing quite ’’natural’’ lagers here...

Set amidst old tanks, rotten buildings and scrap metal, this small brew-pub is nevertheless worth a detour. Located only a few steps from the Beroun railway-stati, it is a good place for a break when You are travelling by slow trains from Prague to Pilsen.......
