Having read about this bar before a recent trip to Prague, I decided that it was a must see for any beer lover. I was not disappointed....
A little hard to find and an unassuming exterior. Pivovarsky Klub has 2 levels: a bar/bottle shop on the ground floor and a cellar bar beneath, where I went to have a meal and a couple of brews.The bottle selection wasn't unlimited but featured plenty of uncommon Czech beers and a good selection of Belgian brews. German beers were also represented, and a smattering of other countries. There are 6 taps with rotating beers and a large bottle menu. The food menu isn't vast, but features a range of Czech classics.
It was pretty quiet when I went - I don't know if this is typical for a Sunday evening. The staff were young and friendly, although their grasp of English seemed a bit patchy. I had soup followed by pork knuckle & sourkraut - perfectly decent food but both of these dishes arrived rather promptly and gave the impression of having been sat in the kitchen waiting for a customer. Perhaps that was just because it wasn't busy, but it dispelled the illusion of freshly prepared food. The beer was better - I sampled 2 from the selection on tap: an unfiltered lager from Pivovarský dům and a honey/smoked malt beer (I forget which brewery). Both were delicious.
I thought the pricing for food and beers on tap was very reasonable, particularly for a capital city. Great value by the standards of most places. Some of the imported offerings in the menu were quite pricy - for example they had a couple of Brewdog bottles that were about £4-5 (much more expensive than here in the UK, but that's imports for you).
Overall, a great place to sample some interesting beers that aren't available elsewhere. The bottle selection is also pretty good, especially if you're looking for Czech beers. Definitely worth paying a visit if you're in Prague.

Second time here, and definitely a must stop in Prague. Food was great, and so was the service; my wife asks a lot of questions about food, and the waiter answered all of them and even offered better suggestions.
The beer on tap was great, in particular the Herold dark Lager. A must when in Prague.

Reviewed from my notes of when I was in Prague. Nice bar, 6 taps of all great beer, with soooo many bottles I can't even tell how many. A bunch of different fridges lined with beers, hundreds of bottles perhaps, the top of the entire place is lined with empty bottles of various kinds, dried hops, almost like a bottle museum, and some brewing equipment in there, as well as books to read on beer, and more. The bartender was pretty well knowledged and friendly. I got the smoked ostrich which was really interesting and pretty tasty, the sourdough bread was awesome too.
