Managed to sneak in before closing and ordered the tasting tray which gives the majority of the beer in handy rate friendly pours.
Also managed to get a couple of the specials and a bottle of champagne yeast beer from the fridge so all was good for the completist.
Nice place and the beer was OK. Not the best in Prague but a couple of them rose above the rest.

Bit of a retrospective entry this but I have looked back in my diary and have been there on 3-4 occasions now. Last visited Jan 2005 and I agree wholheartedly agree with some of the other entries, easily my favourite place in Prague with a very unusual range of beers. Ok so not all of the beers are stunning but I have liked every one and in particular the sour cherry beer definately was my favourite. The food was typical Czech fare but very good. Please be aware that there is seating downstairs if it has become a little crowded up top. A must try for any beer lover in Prague I really like this place.
We pre booked our table before we got there so there were no problems. It certainly felt as though we were amongst locals rather than Tourists, it was busy and the atmosphere was great. The beers were average rather than great and we stayed with the more normal types.
The food was interesting and we found it best to stick with Czech specialities, the Goulash with beer being the best choice.
We took a Taxi to get there and then walked back which is a treck. It seems to be off the main tourist drag so only gets those who seek it out or are staying nearby. A great place to visit.
I always expect this place to let me down, and it never does. It’s got a good vibe for a place that doesn’t have much in the way of atmosphere and makes strange flavored beer concoctions...some of the beers are actually pretty good, especially the regular dark. Thumbs up.

Good place to go with wide & creative selection (including banana & "krapivnoe" among others). The quality is good also.

Cannot say the vibe was anything special, but Dum overall is nice for the adventurous beers (they had a grodzisk on our visit). Service is, well, Czech.
The good thing about this place is the large selection, and they smartly allow samplers. We have been served better than in other places in Prague. The food was maybe simpler than other pubs. The beers are many, but some could be avoided (beer and fruits or herbs for example).
This pub was less than 100m from our hotel in Prague, so it was the first place we visited and I expected to be back at least once over a week, but I was not particularly charmed. While the selection is tough to beat with almost 10 beers, most of them are gimmicks and syrupy gimmicks at that. The svetle was authentic, but pretty much on the average. Special rarities like the imperial stout was sloppy, but I did not dislike the champaign beer despite its high sweetness. Inside, there is surprisingly not so many tourists, but since it’s really more of a restaurant than a pub, the atmosphere is not that much better for it. It remains a must in Prague, but there are at least 5 places I’d do before.
