Visited late afternoon on a Saturday in March and met by lots of empty but reserved tables. Sat at one and luckily on 4 people turned up so kept our seats, lots of people arrived and departed without buying a beer despite the place being half empty at the time. Very odd.
The 3 bars all had different beers in which meant various visits to try different beers. A great range on, decently priced, staff were helpful and friendly.

A beer-focused bar well-known for supplying small and medium sized craft beer on tap only, as members of the P.I.V. Alliance (www.aliancepiv.cz) do. The lower portion is smoke-free though the cloud does waft in from up the stairs, but for the Czech Republic you have to give these guys credit for trying, at least. Beer selection is outstanding, with 0.3 and 0.5L pours available, as is standard. Zly Casy should be considered the top bar in Prague, but further down the ratebeer list is the equally-impressive Kulovy Blesk, closer to the city center and train station, and also a P.I.V. Allieance member. You can’t go to Zly Casy without hitting Kulovy Blesk as well.
For the moment, the best pub in Praha! First time I visited Zly Casy was in 2009. Since then, the amount of draught beers on tap has exploded (and the toilet facilities has also improved) The beer range is fantastic! All kind of new beer from small obscure Czech breweries, and even two from Mahrs, Bamberg. Excellent service and the staff know their beers. The tap range is displayed on "beer cards" above the bar. You can also read about the beers in a booklet. During my second visit, at Saturday night, I met by chance Max Bahnson, The Pivni Filosof. What a day! (Visited 23. and 25th February 2012)
Probably the best selection of beers between Denmark and Portland. Lots of great things on tap. Basically a rathole, though, and tough to get service, although not any worse than usual in Prague, and they tried. Somehow this place was less fun than it shuld have been for us, though it is of course amazing in its slection.
Amazing pub on three floors. Downstairs there is great selection of Czech micros and some US brews on tap. Upstairs more Czech micros. And some Czech macros and Pilseners in the middle. Cheap prices, great service and nice food. Can you ask for more?
A real gem in Nusle, Prague. Located near a tramstop, easy reachable from Narodni Trida tram station at city centre.(Tesco) Large variety in Czech micros, good bottle selection as well. Real Czech pub grub also served, lunch courses as well.

Visited in summer of 2008 as well as for the Zly Casy beer festival 2009, we were there Saturday May 23. Excellent place with nice service and a nice selection of Czech micros on tap. Also some rather nice bottles. Back again in June 2011, even more taps, loads of more people though and I think the prices has gone up. Also now it seems you may eat here. Waaaay better descriptions of the various beers than before, and faster service with more people working, I shall return for sure, so should you!
If you have only one place to visit in Prague, that would probably be the one. The selection is far and away the best in the city and you can see it is operated by beer geeks. The basement interior where the bar is was very busy on our visit and packed with smoke to unseen levels, but the other room upstairs was a calm haven and there is a terrace that was opened for the first hour we were there. Many beers were from breweries I’d never heard of. They have an extensive collection of interesting bottles as well. Apparently, they are about to open a beer store as well. I could not communicate in English, but the place was so busy, I would just order pint after pint and drink up without communicating all that much. It is tough to judge the service when they are so busy, I’d go there early. Without question, this is the place I’ll head to when getting down the plane the next time I’m in Prague. In fact, if you spend 3 or more days in the city, you should probably visit Zly Casy on the first and last day as I presume the menu changes all the time. Far more obscure stuff than the reputed Klub. THE ultimate beer geek spot in Czech Republic. They had taps from brewdog (though you had to pay the price) On my visit they had 5-6 Czech weizen. I’d bet there were not 5-6 being brewed in the whole country just a few years ago.
