I walked downhill from Hrom do Police to Zubaty Pes in Vrsovice. A nice hike, and most tourists have never seen this part of Praha. The pub is small and narrow, but is more spacious downstairs. I came early and hung around by the bar. Staff did not speak English, but that is hardly a problem in a pub! Few guests but most tables were reserved. Great beer selection on tap. 15 quality beers from Matuska, Kocour, Jihlavsky, Brew Dog, Thornbridge, Mikkeller and others. All in good shape. Price? Fair enough for me. Served in 30 cl or 50 cl glass. When I left, I headed for the Nuselska Street to take tram 11 to the last stop, and Prvni Pivni Tramway. (Visited 24th February 2012)
A short tram ride from IP Pavlova (6,7,24) to Bohemians and a short walk to this fine little bar. A little hard to find, just a little yellow sign in the window with "Zubaty Pes". Single room bar, 6 or 7 small tables, and on a early weekday evening we and 2 Czech friends where the only customers. 16 tap’s, 1 empty, selection of 3 house beers, other Czech microes, Sibeeria, Albrecht etc + a Mikkeller, a De Molen and a To øl. Most beers was fresh and nice, 1 or 2 a little old. Pricing maybe a little high for Prague, but so was the quality. Worth a visit.
Located a bit away dom nearest tramstation, but maybe a 10-15 minutes walk from Zly Casy. Small bar area, with seatings upstairs as well. 15 beers on tap during my visit. A mix between czech, english, dutch and danish beers. Quite nice, decently slow on an early tuesday evening. English works fine for ordering beers.
No doubt, comparisons are often misleading, but it is not completely false to call this beer-bar "the czech Mikkeller": minemalistic design, very far from a typical Bohemian beer hall, it looks like a tidy tool shed; the constantly rotating 15 taps come both from excellent chech micros and from the usual suspects (hard to find elsewhere in Praha) like Mikkeller, 8 Wire, Brew Dog, Nøgne Ø and so on…
By the way, it takes only a 15 minutes walk through the lesser golden parts of Prague from Žižkov (Zlý časy) to Vršovice (Zubatý pes - Large toothed dog)!
Middle of nowhere, eventually found - walked past at first as I thought it was a pet shop! Trying so hard to be an international bar, half the taps local, half expensive imports. No atmosphere, and I doubled the clientele when I walked in, not surprisingly disinterested service.
I decided to walk here from the Old Town with snow and ice on the road with the temperature at minus 8 centigrade. Bad mistake. Take a taxi! It’s quite an amazing place in a run down semi industrial area south of the city. Finding it isn’t easy though. The one and only illuminated yellow sign is about the size of a beer tray, but don’t give up. Look for a much larger "FARAON" sign painted on the wall and walk through the white door below. They have 15 taps and a superb bottle selection. The taps are mainly Czech & US and the bottles from Europe. The wifi worked eventually. English is spoken. It’s well worth a visit. If it was in the city centre I would be a regular.
Located outside of city center, walking distance from Zly Casy. Decorated pretty much like ordinary Eastern European bar. Selection is very good, 15 taps, some bottles. They always have combination of interesting Czech crafts on tap (Matuška, Falkon) and some imported micros.
Of course place is more expensive than regular bars, but that’s expected. I’d say prices are good especially imported stuff.
If you are looking for something non -Czech this is the place to be for sure. Mikkeller, Thornbridge, Great Divide, etc. Beers are regular European/US priced since it of course it much more expensive. You can walk from Zly Casy and Basta. Nice Afghan "pizza-bread" like snack. The Czech version of Mikkeller Bar.
(Visited July 2013) A bit odd, but very nice beer bar in an area where I wouldn’t end up if I didn’t know what I was looking for. It’s a bit out of the beaten tourist track, not far from the Bohemians soccer stadium, accessible with trams 7 and 24. The bar is located at the end of a slightly shady street next to a garage. Once inside the interior is mainly steel and concrete, with a large bar along one wall. There’s seating downstairs as well, but it was empty on my visit. Not very cosy, but once inside I felt quite comfortable seated by the bar, mainly down to the friendly and efficient service and the rest of the friendly and beer interested guest. Quite a good selection of draught beers, 16 taps and lots of imported beers from Belgium, US, UK and Germany, together with a couple of fairly rare Czech beers. Took a 15 minute walk to Zly Casy upon leaving. Nice and friendly place and worth the detour.
Stylish elite beer bar with a fine selection of Europe’s fancy beers. It was a bit dead when we were there, and didn’t have much that we didn’t already knew in Denmark, but for others it will be a revelation. If you have travelled the (rate)beer capitals of Europe, there are more interesting places in Prague, but if you feel like taking a break from the local beer and having some outstanding IPA or Imperial Stout, then this is the place.
