A really good place that mixes some of the best of two worlds. A classic Prague beer hall downstairs serving Budvar tanková and a small brewpub upstairs serving some really outsanding beers (though their quality can suffer during the high seasons)

One of my favorite breweries to hit in Prague. They have some great beers (especially X33) but also have a dozen other Czech beers to try. I sat in a very cool bar.
What a lovely spot! A huge building with several floors of beer opportunities hidden in Prague’s Old Town. I visited twice in July 2009 and found the service to be quite good and cheery (even the young lass selling the souvenir stuff), and the place as a whole oozed Old Timey atmosphere. It’s a Budvar tankova, which I gather means they hose the fresh unfiltered "original" Budweiser in from trucks as if it were heating oil. What an upgrade from the bottled version! If you head upstairs, then you get into the more serious home-brewed stuff. I didn’t plunge for the X33 extra-strong, but enjoyed two wonderful mugs of Old Gott. Oh how I’d love to return here! One of my Prague beer highlights, absolutely. Value is extra-high, as prices in Prague are really excellent for the high quality of beer you get. "Exceptional" is a really high-praise sort of label, but I’d readily go with that for U Medvidku. Very Highly Recommended!

I don’t speak about big beer hall. I speak about small bar on top floor (near shop).
First! donot sit in downstairs restaurant if you look for the brewery.!, Brewery is at the very back and second floor.
they have relativley less tables but you can drink your beer while the brewer making the beer in front of you.. Not for real beer lovers because it’s a little hot and smells wort.
Tasted all available beers, all fo them was fine to good.. Triedalso X33 which claimed as the strongest beer (which comes only from malt) in the world.
Place is the the old city center and aslo another good spot for beer-travellers.
Love this place; especially the small brewery onsite upstairs in the back (also a hotel?) Visited in 2009 and 2012. Huge beerhall with solid czech food standards and a small beer bar with more variety and quest beers (all of the Budvar styles including their yeast beer). A classic must visit in Prague.
Probably my favorite bar while traveling in Prague. They have a variety of beers and sections to sit in.

Very strangely divided pub, where their own beers are served on 2nd floor. Long journey but worth. Beers are OK, staff very friendly and polite. If you are lucky enough, you can speak with brewer. Recommended place.
Great traditional Czech restaurant/microbrewery! Central location, very fresh beer (but limited selection), amazing food, good prices. A must visit when in Prague!
P.S: Ask for the brewery tour upstairs and make sure to try Little Bear (very nice, clean honey beer) if available.
