Cracking pub with a ridiculous number of taps. It’s a wee trek from the tourist trail but well worth the time. There’s an upstairs and downstairs that sell conflicting beers. The majority of taps are Czech micro and not particularly interesting but there’s also gems ahoy. The food is alright. I’ve eaten there a few times and it’s great value but sometimes they throw you a curveball. Zly Casy translates to ’Bad Times’. I love that. This pub is a cracker.

A lot of taps but i asked for three and is finished! Don’t serve any of the bottles you see there and you can smoke inside...

This place may be off the beaten path, but it is well worth it if you are in Prague. Huge selection of beer. Keep in mind what they have upstairs is different than downstairs. You can buy beer at either bar and bring it up or down. The staff was friendly to us even though we don’t speak Czech. I’d go back here for sure.

Excellent beer store! The shopkeeper I see there is most helpful, speaks English, and is enthusiastic about beers. She’s there because she loves it, too, not just for a job. Their selection of Czech beers is stellar, esp. when the Trebonice beers are in season. And they have (thank the BEER GODS!!!) American craft beers from breweries such as Founders, Dirty Dog, Left Hand and Anderson Valley!

The selection of beers is outstanding and a must visit for the fan of Czech beer. We arrived early and stayed well into the afternoon. There was a smell of soap that interferred with the beer aroma, and unfortunately it didn’t go away as the pub filled up. It was a little better in the back of the room, farthest away from entrance and the toilets... We certainly had some excellent beers and a good time.

Visited again, July 2012. It’s only getting better with an upstairs bar, and now (also at opening time) a little less of the cleaning smell. Many new beers for me on the many taps, and in generally good to excellent condition.

Best choice for beer lovers in Prague. 21 local brews on tap, mainly from micros and brewpubs, plus 3 international brands. Sampled Tambor 11° and 12°, Poutnik 12°, Kacov 12° and Vyskov IPA, all in top conditions. Prices ranging between 26 Kc and 45 Kc. Classic pub food and snacks. Friendly and helpful staff, English spoken. I’ll definitely go back.

Das Beste in Prag. Hat immer über 20 Biere aus aller Welt frisch vom Zapfhahn. Ausserdem viele weitere Biere aus der Flasche. Ständig wechselnde Sorten. Ausserdem gibts es hier gutes Essen für kleine Preise. Allerdings alles nur auf Snackebene. Man kann aber gut von satt werden. Direkt nebenan ist ein Biershop mit vielen Flaschenbieren aus aller Welt zu guten Preisen! Ein muss bei jedem Pragbesuch.

Great beer bar in the basement (plus there is a winter garden, which unfortunately isn’t smoke-free). Very large rotating selection of beers on tap. Mostly Czech breweries/micros, but also German ones (they had Schlenkerla Kräusen and Mahr’s Festtags-Weiße when we were there - beers you rarely find even in Germany). Apart from the 24 taps, there is a large selection of bottled beers from abroad sitting in several fridges in the main room - we did not check if there were more elsewhere. Food included typical Czech bar snacks, which we did not try because kitchen had already closed when we got hungry. Very reasonably priced, though maybe not by Czech standards. Staff did not seem to speak a lot of English, but with a few words of Czech and some sign language, everything worked out fine. And don’t save up the most interesting beer for last - chances are that that’s the one that runs out before you finally want to order it!
