Great selection of beers with an OK food menu, although the food comes out ridiculously fast. The beers are the main reason to come here and some interesting beers are available.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Nice selection of their own beers, though most of the flavored ones are worthless--except the coffee. We had a good, albeit very heavy meal and enjoyed many of their beers. One should try to visit.

Latest visit was in the evening of Monday May 25, 2015. Likely after 20:30 or so, but should’ve been before 22:00.
Fairly crowded, as it often has been in the past. Got seated (me and one friend) at a small table, then was asked if two more persons could join us, no problem. We already ate, so only stayed for a beer each, which were in the usual good quality. Make sure to reserve a table if wanting to go here, or be prepared to wait in line.
Very close to tram stop Štěpánská.
Had the total score at about 86 before, but not as good/nice/comfortable as it was a few or even 10 years ago. Still worth going to though.
Been here several times in the past, some text from some visits below:
I’ve visited Pivovarsky Dum once, when I was in Prague for one week in May of 2005.
I will be going to Prague again in less than two weeks time and have booked a lunch and a guided brewery tour of the pub brewery for our group.
Last time I tried a few of their beers, such as the banana beer, coffee beer, sour cherry beer, nettle beer and one of their more "regular" beers.
Very nice as a home brewer to be able to taste wild experimental beers like the ones I try to make for myself. And they have an awesome selection and good quality of their beers.
Food is very nice too, and good sice portions of that.
The place is a bit pricy compared to many non-tourist places in Prague, but it’s worth a visit and I’d say it’s pretty much mandatory to visit it at least once when in Prague.
Can get quite crowded, so might be a good idea to make reservations or come as small groups (or alone).
Visits to the brewery is possible, but make resevations to be sure, specially if you want the guide to be able to do the tour in English.
They have opened a new restaurant with more than 170 different beers. The home page is in Czech only, but at least you can find the address so you can visit the place.
