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.

Very nice service and variety, but perhaps it was too early to see the ambiance, but anyway, it is a greatplace.

Very large selection for a Prague restaurant. Uncomfortable chairs in a cool brewpub. Large menu, but the beer is very expensive here and this was probably my most expensive meal in the city, but still reasonable by American standards. Service was friendly; the food OK.

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.

I LOVED Pivovarsky Dum. Where else are you going to find Nettle Beer, Banana Beer, Vanilla Beer, and all those other weird flavors, not to mention Sour Cherry Beer. Very, very adventurous. I respect their effort. Although the beer themselves weren’t great, at least the place tried. Finding seven taps in Prague is a rare deal. The stench of unwashed people continued at Pivovarsky Dum, as it had everywhere eise in Prague - perhaps no one bathes on Christmas Day, as I was there on 12/25. Service adequate to good. Food was subpar - the dumplings with fruit filling were especially uninspired.

By far the best selection of beers i found in prague. Many are very unique and experimental and might not be everyones favorite, some turned out rather nicely. They do a nice sample plate of all their beers for fairly cheap. The restaraunt is medium sized with the brewery right in the middle of it. The staff was very friendly and helped me out understanding their range of beers even though don’t know any czech.

Good prices, large portions. I enjoyed most of the beer here and they also have a few meads available for sampling. Easy to walk to from the city center. I enjoyed their coffee and their svetle quite a bit. Worth checking out.

Definitely the best brew pub we visited. As well as their own light & dark brews there was a whole range of speciality beers which on our visit included wheat, cocoa, banana, sour cherry, nettle and chilli. Samples can be purchased for around 30p, take-outs are available and tours of the brewery can be arranged by appointment. There is a good menu based on Czech cuisine with a quaintly named "Little things that go well with Beer" section. It has the feel of a boisterous German beer hall to it with a regimented layout of tables. However the drinking areas are separated so the effect is one of a lively bar rather than it being overpowering. Fairly easy to find, I recommend a visit.

Typical brewpub restaurant with a twist: they brew a range of eclectic fruit and spice beers. Interesting on paper, but half of those experiments are either plain weird or off. Food is good with reasonable, maybe small, portions. They also do beer cuisine, like many Czech brewpubs. They were brewing the first time I was there, so the smell was everywhere at moments, making it hard to appreciate anything else. And there weren’t any tourists that time either, only Czechs having lunch with a quick pint. Nothing outstanding here if they keep the quality issues, and the special beers did feel gimmick-y. A more recent visit in 2008 proved the Svetlé to be absolutely excellent. I’ll definitely be back just in case it can reach this level of quality.

Cool brewpub with authentic feel until you realize it’s devoid of Czechs. Special beers are definitely interesting and worth a taste, but make sure you get both their svetly and tmave, among the best in the CR. Food is okay but overpriced. Still, a unique must-see for beer fans in Prague.
