Fantastic bar, outside of the touristy areas. Went on a weekday at around 7pm. While most of the tables had little reservation slips, we were lucky to get a small table for two on the lower level. This is the odd part: we were there for a few hours and the place was 1/2 to 3/4 empty, even though several groups of people left because there were no ’open’ tables (tables that weren’t reserved). I don’t quite understand why one of the best bars/restaurants would want to keep half the place empty. Other than that, I drunk a ton of beers that I had never heard of before, we got a few of the appetizers piled with deep fried goodies and left with a tab with an equivalent of ~ $15 USD. Great, attentive service, the waitresses knew the tap list really well and the small pours really let you sample a lot of the tap list. Well worth the short tram ride out of the center city.

A lot of taps with Czech beers and a good selection of bottles. Food was OK. This place has three levels. You get in from the top level and there are two levels downstairs. I liked the two lower levels, they were cozier (not spacious but "warmer" for your eyes).

Zly Casy is unparallelled in Praha in terms of selection. Last time I was there they had 36 beers on tap. Now I believe there’s 12 more? Anyhow, no way anyone can get through that list in an evening. For exploring beers you never heard of, excellent place. Also, never been served anything that seemed out of condition. The upstairs is open until 2AM which is a great plus for me. Decent beer after midnight is hard come by in Praha. The food is ok, but nothing special. Ambiance downstairs great, upstairs ok. Mostly good to excellent service. The owner deserves a medal for being a beacon of beer enlightenment to us poor sods who once thought Staropramen was a good brewery.

If you don’t have time to get out of Prague and seek out countryside Czech brews yourself, this bar will give you a whirlwind tour through its many taps of both obscure and well-established microbreweries. The basement is where it’s at though for that amazing Czech beer list. Czech-style country music was playing too when we were there, which was highly entertaining. Unless you plan on coming around time of opening, make sure you have reservations.

Place that has an upper and lower bar, best selection in Czech Rep. Lower bar is better, a bit harder to find but keep going once inside and you’ll get there. Everything is reserved, as usual our waiter told us. We were still able to grab a table before dinner for a few pints. One of the few places we’ve been too that had Czech music playing (country-ish) so that was cool. Prices were good, didn’t try the food. Waiter was kind and spoke good english. Easy to get to by tram. A top notch place.

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!
