“Got there shortly before 12 am, people all ready singing. Only stayed for a beer each. Easy and quick seated, got our beer fast. The Becherovka guy was a bit pushy. We did not eat there. Payment was difficult, so we left sufficient cash on the table and walked to another restaurant.“

“A local brewery with 8 tap beers (+bottles to be sold). Big plates of food. Good service (english spoken with some staff). Good ambience. On Summer seems a good place to be outside.“

58 /100 NA PERŠTÝNě 7, PRAHA 1 - STARÉ MěSTO
“Latest visit on August 5, 2017.
Been back many times, figured I'll rerate the place again.
Walked upstairs and sat for a few beers with my mates. Un-attentive service, sort of rude, didn't stay long enough for you to say you wanted a small one of the beer you just tried to order. Not a place to hang out upstairs, mainly to sample some specialty beers and move on.
Had the X33 for the first time, on tap even. Always avoided it for the steep price (compared to many other beers in this country), cost 120 Kc for a glass.

Earlier from 2006 or so:
It’s not obvious this is actually a brew pub as well as a Budvar place and restaurant. Go through the main hall and find your way to the brew pub upstairs, it’s well worth it and the beer is good. Also the shop in the basement can be well worth a visit, for example to buy their bottled beer.

Rerate. Rather poor service in 2008, downgrading scores for it.“

72 /100 BULOVKA 17, PRAHA 8 - LIBEň
“Latest visit on August 5, 2017.
Actually only one staff member there when we arrived, it did not really fill up during our stay, but at least plenty more patrons arrived. Didn't eat, only sampled 3 different beers, had one each of the favorite we all found, then left.
Their APA had HuuuuuuugE amounts of Brett in it, tried to explain to the girl who worked there that perhaps they should get their brewer to sample it, since an APA should perhaps be hoppy and not bretty, bu twe didn't get through.
The other two beers held the usual high quality.

Time to update this.
Been here a bunch of times over the years, latest was Saturday May 23, 2015. We got there after lunch, before dinner, Likely was there around 13:00 or 14:00, stayed until 17:00 or so.
Always been super busy the other times I’ve visited, not we had a table, and there were empty tables even! Sampled four beers. Was treated to some free Becherovska from the nice girl working the bar too. Smoking is allowed inside, so know that if you have a problem with it. Very genuine, very nice, feels good to be there. Perhaps not for huge parties or without table reservation if you plan on eating or be there during the busy hours.
Not very easy to find if you don’t know where to look. Tram stop is Bulovka or some such, tram 3 goes from there straight to the center.
Much recommended!

Old rating from 2007:
You pretty much have to know where you are going to find this place, but it’s well worth looking for. One of the few non-tourist brew pubs in Prague, nice service and very cosy. Did not try the food.

Restaurace Kobyla (Restaurant)
KLAPKOVA 172/8
“Visited first time on August 5, 2017.
A restaurant with extensive food menu and very nice Pilsner Urquell Tankova available.
Located very close to metro, tram and bus stop Kobylisy.
We stopped here for food and beer after the trip to brewery Pivovar Sedivak.
Not a place to hunt for new ticks, though they did have one, but a nice place to get food and fresh PU if going to or back from Sedivak, or just hanging around the north eastern parts of town. All three of us were quite happy with food, beer, service and prices, as well as the location close to many options for public transport.
I'll stop by for food again if close by for sure.“

“Visited for the first time on August 5, 2017.
Need to go a bit on the metro, then change to a bus, but worth the ride! Go around the building just by the stop, and you’ll find the brewpub by the green sign under the apartment buildnings.
Not much else around, everything else seemed closed.
No English spoken, but they had three beers on and they could udnerstand enough of my questions to tell me which one was which.
Uninterested service that don’t seem to appreciate the random tourists that swing by. Tried the three beers, then went back for one more. Nice place, though too far out to even come close to just finding it, you’d need to plan a trip to go here for sure if interested.
Smoking no longer permitted inside, some can sit outside at some benches and tables, but inside you may enjoy your beer without the smoke.
I will return, nice quality beers. Very nice prices!“

“Latest visit on August 5, 2017.
Got there shortly before 11 am when we thought they opened, but apparently they open at 10 am now.
Only stayed for a beer each, sat in the beer garden that was the only thing open, still quite a few people at this early hour. As per usual lots of staff, but not very fast service, the beer did get there quicker than usual, and the Becherovka guy only needed three no’s before he wandered on.
The beer itself has lost quality even more, perhaps due to the brew master going to work somewhere else? Still a classic place, I’m likely to return, but the beer is just not as great as in the past.

Visited everal times since 2005, latest visit was Tuesday early, May 26, 2015. Got there around 10:55.
Me and two friends sat down just for a beer each, didn’t eat and didn’t stay long. Not as crowded as many other times, also fast service for the beer and not as pushy as usual per the Becherovka that we don’t want. Easy and fast to pay after.
Beer wasn’t as fantastic as I remember it, actually it was sort of bland and just OK. Not sure if they’ve changed the recipe, I’ve changed my preference or an old beer/bad taps. With the turnover I’d say not likely an old beer and I’d guess also not likely bad cleaning of taps. My hunch is they’ve changed the recipe and/or brew process since the way it was when I fell in love with this beer.
Very touristy place, still worth getting to at least once. Very centrally located, easy walk from e.g. Lazarska.


Earlier text from earlier visits:
I’ve visited U Fleku 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 dinner and a guided brewery tour of the pub brewery for our group.
Last time I can remember trying only one beer of theirs, the "dark". I don’t think they have any other beers, but with that quality, who needs more?
A bit split about what to put under selection, they only have one beer, so selection is very poor, but the one they have is excellent, so what to say?
Food is very nice too, and good sice portions of that.
The place is very 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.
If the waitors comes with glasses of Becherovska and you don’t want it, tell them fast, or you’ll end up paying for it anyway.
A bit confusing since one guy handles beer, another food, a third the becherovska and a fourth the payment. Once you get the hang of that it’s easier to follow who you should try and get the attention from.“

72 /100 NAD KOLčAVKOU 8/907, PRAHA 9 - LIBEň
“Visited for the first time lateish evening of August 4, 2017.
Started with their sample plate of 5 beers, then sampled another 3 you could buy by the glass. I think the 8 we sampled this evening was the ones available. IT seemed like the 5 you get to try on the sample plate/flight/paddle are the ones they decide, the rest you need to get by the glass if you want to try them.
Some English spoken by some staff. Quite a few tables inside, we opted to sit outside though.
Walkable from metro stop Ceskomoravská, though having google maps on the phone helps a bit. You get the feeling not too many tourists find their way over here. Charming, but also a feeling of being left out, like the locals find you mainly amusing but really not for you to go. Decent amount of people here drinking beer, also some eating. Beers were all decent, some good. Walked back to tram stop Balabenka, realized an old metal place were just there from my memory, so if you feel like a very shade underground type metal bar that only serve Gambrinus, and they still allow smoking inside, google Rock Pub Error on your way home.
Perhaps not a place to venture just because, there are better and more easily located brewpubs around town.“

“Visited for the first time on August 4, 2017. Got there early afternoon.
Plenty of seating inside as well as outside. Three beers available, 2 were very nice, one was good. Decent service. Didn’t eat, just sampled the three beers.
Very close to tram stop Národní divadlo, if going eat to west you’ll just pass the place on the south side of the street. Also quite close to tram and metro stop Národní trída.“

34 /100 VODIčKOVA 20, PRAHA 1 - NOVÉ MěSTO
“Latest visit on the afternoon of August 4, 2017.
Stopped by for a late lunch and their two beers.
Service was close to decent, up until we were about to pay. He slammed the money I gave him down onto the table and then screamed that service was not included. So again, tips is not included, but if I am giving tips in Czech I expect good service, and it is still voluntary, not something you have to do. Quality of their beers seem to have gone down as well. Food was decent, but the goulash was not even close to that, more a beef stew with sausage (?) in it. Feels I do not have to go to this place any more times.

So rerate time of this again.
Been here several times since 2005, usually only go back these days for food. When here to eat, preferably bo booking in advance, all is fine. If you swing by for a beer then expect not to much. Updated rating with scores is per the latest visit only.
Latest visit was Saturday evening, May 23, 2015. Arrived shortly before 18:00 with a group of 11 people, with a pre-order of the roast piglet.
Sampled the 4 beers with flavours; banana, ginger, coffee and caramel. Also had the light and the dark beer.
Roast piglet was awesome as always, service was OK.

Centrally located, right by tramstop Vodickova, also walking distance from metro stations Mustek and Narodni Trida.

I’ve visited Novomestsky Pivovar 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 my birthday dinner and a guided brewery tour of the pub brewery for our group.
They have a 10-12 kg roast pig if you order at least 24 hours before, so that’s what we’ll be having :D

Last time I can remember trying two beers of theirs, the light and the dark. Don’t think they had any other beers, but with that quality, who needs more?

Very nice as a home brewer to be able to taste Czech pub brewey beers.

Food is very nice too, and good size 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.

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.

Rerate: Time to lower the service score, the guy refused to let us pay with a 500 note for two beers, he laughed at us and asked if we were kidding! What’s a tourist to do then?

Mead Museum (Beer Store)
PRAGUE 2, NA ZDERAZE STREET NO. 14
“First time visitor on August 4, 2017.
Just saw the name listed for places in Prague, knew I had to find my way here and check it out.
One smallish room when you walk in, one side is a counter/bar, the other is a big shelf filled with bottles of mead.
Friendly English speaking service who genuinely appreciate your visit and wants to teach you more about mead.
Seems to concentrate on mead from Czech and Slovakia, but also have some knowledge about other countries meads.
There’s a toilet in the back if asking for it.
You may ask for a tasting of 5 meads for 130 czk or 10 meads for 190 czk, I opted for the 10 mead one. Also bought a few small bottles of mead to bring home. The meads that will go into the tasting depends a bit on what kind of meads you like and what you are interested in, since they have some 20-30 bottles open at the time they will choose from for the tasting. Only one person working and taking care of the tasting, so if there’s another group there already you might have to wait.
Not a bar really, more a shop where you may choose to have a tasting as well.
No matter if you want a mead tasting or if you are looking for mead or honey products to purchase, this is a great place that I will return to for sure next time in Prague.
Just make sure to check the current opening hours on their site/FB, since they seem to change on and off. Mainly closed Mondays and Sundays, and then open during afternoon other days.“

70 /100 LÍPOVÁ 511/15, PRAHA 2 - NOVÉ MěSTO
“New visit on August 4, 2017.
Shorlty after lunch, not as crowded as I’ve seen it in the past.
Seated upstairs, super hot inside (very warm outside), so sweating a lot and only stayed for one of their sampled trays of 8 small pours.
Nice fast service this time around. The tmave was in good condition, but the svetly have seen better days (as per my memory). When there were some 8 or so breweries in Prague this was a must go, seems they are now lagging behind some of the new of the 25+ breweries available. Though I didn’t eat this time, I have many times in the past, and based on that would return for the food.

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 Štepánská.
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.
