As mentioned already, Loket is a pretty impressive town. Sitting inside is nowhere near as nice as out on the deck, but service on the deck is unfortunately pretty sparse. Food was pretty dire, and prices quite expensive by Czech standards even though they never seemed to attract the German bus tour trade. I wouldn’t recommend the food or the service at all, but the beer and the view are both great.

loket is such a fun town, the brewery visit and the vienna shouldn’t be the only reason for a visit. the castle houses a torture museum, the tour is a little funny. picture from inside: http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaeljames/4101128897/sizes/l/
steel tanks, brick walls, lots of tables inside, patio outside with a tremendous view. the polotmave 11 will probably be the only beer available, but it’s simply the best vienna I’ve ever tried.

This place is a bit hard to find, if you enter the town from the wrong side. The place itself is very beutifully renovated with arched stone cealing. The brewery is very dominating in the end of the pub - where in the summer of 2008 Novak from Minipivovar Velichov was the brewer. The place was very quite when we visited mid-afternoon on a Monday. Only 1 beer when we visited, but apparantly they sometimes also have a 13 degree beer. The service was OK, but slow. The food was OK without being special - I had fried cheese, but it is quite pricy for the Czech Republic.

You can’t fault the view from the tables outside, (a beautiful town) and their own beer is excellent.

Scenery is simply unreal. A little island with a big castle on top of it and a brewpub next to it. Give a camera to a blind man and he’ll come back with a dozen of postcard-worthy pictures. The pub itself is classy and obviously targeted at a wealthy touristy crowd (there aren’t many locals in Locket). By far the most expensive place I have visited in Czech republic but at $3/pint this is steal cheap by our north-american standards. Only one home-beer on tap but a very good one which I thought was surprising considering this is a tourist-oriented place. Also had 2 Krusovice on tap when were there and both were so-so. This is NOT a party place. Courteous professional service. Excellent food but don’t expect the basic Czech traditional meals (no goulash!?!), the menu is more on the upscale side of things. With only one home-beer on tap and given the long ride from wherever you are this is not worth it just for the pub-crawling. However I HIGHLY recommend visiting Locket, and
