Visited first time on August 2, 2017.
Have been to Prague quite a few times in the past and loved it very much, hence I often return.
Centrally located, easily walkable from the Karluv Most/Charles Bridge.
Cozy, nice place down some stairs from a back street into a cellar like place. Warm lighting, brewery on dislay, you can sit by some small tables in the front room, or down a small stair into the back room. Started out with nice, fast, helpful service. Samled the three beers they had on. Ordered som hot almonds, the server did say "they might be a bit hot", they were HOT as hell. Damn they burned us so many times, tasted good though. Really nice tasty beers, quite expensive though. Oh the almonds were rather expensive as well, but we figured this close to the center that’s just what you’ll have to deal with. Some music playing, quite a bit of The Doors this evening.
And then...
We ask to pay, everything has been great, the bill is put on the table. And there it is. He has used a yellow marker to highlight "service is not included" the oh so these days familiar words when going even way outside the tourist traps in Prague. Not only this, he has also by hand added "10%" next to it, indicating that is what we should pay.
Since service fee very much is included in Czech Rep., since tips is completely optional, and since they would NEVER ask a Czech speaking person for this, or even have it on their bill, that last part just turned a great experience and a nice place into something that didn’t feel good.
Our bill was at 198, we woul’ve gladly put down 200 if the last part of our visit didn’t turn out the way it did. So I added it up to 208 and waited, and waited, and waited. Now all of a sudden he was no longer keen to approach our table, just stood waiting by the bar for us to leave. Finally he did come up and stated "all OK" and started to take all the money. I said, I need my 10 back. As to the reply was "service is not included in Czech". This place and sadly quite a few I went to on this trip had severly reduced my wish to return to Prague, and very much my will to go back to this place or any other that try to force me to pay tips, just because I’m a foreigner. Shame on them.
If you speak Czech, or if you are willing to deal with the "service is not included" (which is a lie), the place is a really nice one.

Visited on 13th July 2017. Nice basement brewpub tucked away from Tourist central. Decor is smart and a little odd, a small range of beers on tap plus a few bottles, service and prices were decent enough. Nice place but not sure there’s enough to dash back to other than the fact there’s nearby breweries to visit.

Nice basement brewpub divided in 2 levels and multi roomed. We sat on the upper level, with great view of the copper kettles. Interesting beers and good service, well worth a visit.

Absolutely beautiful little connected cellar system. Brewing equipment proudly on display in the brickwork bar room, we sat in the more sterile plastered restauranty area for a bit more privacy. Not sure why, it was very late and midweek, we were the only ones there! Either way, all parts had a nice friendly cozy feel to them. Not bound by Czech brewing traditions, and turning out some interesting beers. Staff spoke decent English, and served with a smile. Definitely a place to return to, and possibly to eat next time.

Even later in the evening. Some kind of cellar place. Looks nice and clean. Service was quite fast. She spoke english quite well so no problem here too. Seats were comfy.

Quite quiet at 4 afternoon when I stepped down into the place just around the corner after U Valsu. Staff were labelling a new batch. And beauty made photos, with beers only. 200g hovězí tempted me, as I’d got only the cheese of a goat earlier. Maybe it’s evening crowded. I had the whole spot almost by myself.

Very charming basement brewpub. Service was good and the food too. Admittedly the portions were a bit small, but given the reasonable prices you could order several courses and still come out ahead compared to some establishments. The on tap selection is limited to the 3 beers brewed in house, but all 3 are good; two of them very good. Deserves far more visitors than the few we saw during our night there. die
