What a joy it was to finally get to this place. Not that Czech beer is bad, but for the most part it doesn't diverge far from the Pilsner. I know that there are some exceptions, I wasn't able to focus on beer as much as I wanted to during this trip.

Walking in, I saw 4 standard Sierra Nevada brews, and a bunch of other non-Czech beers staring at me. Lots of Germans, the above mentioned American, and plenty of Belgian, including most of the Trappists. There were others too, like BrewDog. I had the Hardcore IPA from BrewDog. I don't know what the count on the selection is, but it was way better than anywhere else in the country, so I am scoring it high based on the challenges of sourcing foreign brews.

They had plenty of lesser known Czech beers from around the country. There were 6 taps, which is double what most Czech bars have. I had a Primator Weissbier, which was a great German style wheat, and Abbaye De Floreffe Prima Melior, a Belgian Dark Strong Ale. It too was delicious.

There is no smoking allowed in Pivovarsky Klub! This was greatly appreciated, and I am scoring the atmosphere higher than I would have as a result. It is very uncommon for an establishment to be non-smoking in the Czech Republic.

The Czech beers were all priced similarly as other places, and the foreign ones were pricey. But that's expected, and I'm not complaining. It's worth it. Service was average, though the tender did go to lengths to make sure I knew the Brewdog would be bottled and not on tap, which I had already gathered.

I conversed with some young Czech guys, and was told of Zyl Casy, only 1 review here so far. They said it was their favorite, and it had 24 taps, unheard of in those parts, and lots of foreign bottled beers. I didn't make it, unfortunately, but if you are in Prague, it's probably worth finding.

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.

Ok... last review of the 2013 trip... Alewife and I took a day-trip to Plzen on 04OCt13 for some suds and sights.... Upon returning, we made the walk from the train station to Klub for some biers before going out for dinner... A bit out of the way, in a drab looking area of town...

A grey concrete building with green-trimmed, arched windows was found and allowed us entry... Straight in and we encountered walls ahead and to the right with shelves and shelves lined with biers and biers (and a few glasses!). On the left was a small bar and a couple of long tables. To the right were some smaller tables and chairs. We parked at one of the long tables left. The bar had 6 draft biers; I tried a Falkenštejn 14° Tmavý Speciál, Alewife a hefeweizen type brew. Mine was good; Alewifes fair... While quaffing I perused the shelves. Shitloads of bottles were available for either in-house imbibing or take-away. A Primator 24° caught my eye, and I tried that next. Damn good! Had another, and Alewife opted to do the same. Even bought a couple for take-away (and brought safely home). Solid, English-speaking service behind the bar was much appreciated. The biers available in bottles were extensive... loads and loads.... I wish I knew more about Czech stuff. There's also a downstairs, which had its own bar and lots of tables in a warm, brick-lined setting. This is a real nice place, and I wish it were closer to the downtown action. Still, it was still only a leisurely, 30 minute walk back to our apartment. Would def return if/when I'm back.... Prosit!!
