This place was interesting... it had a decent selection of beer, 5-6 taps I think, all their own, some bottles as well a mix of their own and other locals. A very high class place it seems, nice atmosphere. The food was great, I got the Pig knuckle, it was enough to feed a small army and was soo friggen good, and cheap. I would go back for that alone. Their beers were decent, nothing too special overall. Service left a little something to be desired though. I stopped there twice, once for a couple beers, then back again on my way back for dinner. The first time the waitress was not very attentive, and not very helpful. Teh second time the waiter was a bit better, very friendly, seemed more attentive but that's probably because I was so preoccupied with all the food and beer.

On 02OCT13 Alewife and I did some touring of castles in the countryside. After arriving back at the station we took a short walk here for dinner.

Easily found on one of the main streets in Praha, it is located on the ground floor of a drab, blah-looking, grey block building. There are many large windows through which you can see brewing stuff and contented diners/drinkers. There's a small bar and lounge-type area on the right, with some tables set up on the left. Down a short hallway are other rooms with plenty more tables of various sizes. The incandescent lighting gives off a warm glow, and most walls are dark wood. Shelves hold old bier bottles and many old photos of years gone by adorn the walls. Our server was quite attentive and spoke English quite well (whew!). They had a basic hell and dunkel, plus some odd-ball biers, like a wheat, a coffee bier, and a nettle bier (??). I had the hell, Alewife the dunkel, and we both enjoyed our offerings. She dined on the Wiener Schnitzel while I wolfed down the superb Brewers Gulasch. The food was A-1, the biers solid, and the overall experience quite enjoyable. Prosit!

I've been to this brewpub 3 times, although on my first visit the pub was too crowded to handle my party of 5 or more people. But I was there long enough to see some strange looking beers, a couple of tables with giraffes, and a generally attractive appearance; I also noted a fine atmosphere and vowed to return if possible. This review is based on two return visits in July 2011.

This brewpub doesn't serve the largest number of different beers, but their variety can match the on-site brews of any pub I've ever been in. Besides the usual array of Czech beers -- light and dark lagers -- they have banana beer, the very odd nettle beer (it's naturally green), an excellent sour-cherry beer, coffee beer, beer champagne, beer brandy, and some others. Visitors can get a nice sampling wheel to try the standard and eccentric beers. Sampler aside, prices seem a bit high (by Czech standards), but the beer is very good quality and many are unique.

This pub is very near to a tram stop and walking distance to the Old Town section, but far enough from any main tourist area to attract, I think, more locals than tourists. My first trip here was with locals.

I ate here on both occasions and the food was very good each time. Service was professional if a bit less warm than some from other parts of the world might hope for. English menus are available and most servers speak some English. Menu features traditional Czech foods. There are several different seating areas, but not seats at the bar. Tours of the brewing facilities are available on occasion (I think depending on how busy they are.

I hope to return again, hopefully with a bunch of people so that I can have a giraffe at my table -- also to get a tour and find out more about both the 'regular' and the weird brews.

Highly recommended.

Place was slammed beyond belief, but we managed to get a table with speaking limited czech. The food was great, typical czech fare and weel done. I had the wheel or beers sampler but I can't rememeber them enough to write reviews. Service was shady at best but they were busy. Waitress was bitchy and didnt care much. I lived and czech for 6 months and understand the culture and how to order but this chick was rude. Overall, this place was great but sister pub pivoarsky Klub is way better. worth checking out be aware of crowds and going during peak hours.

It was midday and we were the only customers. The setting is rather simple, normal tables, not too much decoration and a working brewing equipment. Service was ok, but it could have been more friendly, it seemed that they would have preferred to use the opportunity to chat given there were very few customers in the pub.

No idea about the food, but beer was very good, including the nettle one.

Prices were rather high for Czech standards, but cheap for a visitor from almost any other European country. It is certainly worth visiting and trying their beers.

wandered over to this place from our hotel in the old town, maybe a 15 minute walk

nothing overly special with the atmosphere - main floor is primarily tables suited for serving food.

the food, as it so happens, was awesome. This brewprub is a great dinner option - i had the duck (massive) with dumplings and the menu was filled with "traditional czech" cuisine at very reasonable prices (all entrees below $10 american)

the beer was pretty good too - i had the light dark, bock, and coffee. i also sampled the champagne beer from the bottle, which was pretty nice.

it was a unique way to find out that its often customary to have communal seating in Prague. We were seated at a small 4-top where 2 lads were already eating. Awkwardness was avoided though, since we were speaking different languages

very happy with this spot

Decent sized place with probably around 12-15 tables scattered around upstairs. Had a number of beer-centric decorations. The wait staff was good, attentive, and fast and the food was out extraordinarily fast (although the couple next to me got their food just fast). Nice selection of Czech and psuedo-Czech food, with smaller dinners reasonably priced, having just been to Germany, the serving size seemed a little smaller for the regular size, but that was a nice change of pace. The goulash was good and the Bohemian dumplings were also quite good. They don't have a huge beer selection, but they have some unique offerings that they brew. I had the nettle beer and the coffee beer, both good and interesting, but not amazing. The beer is quite cheap, for ,3 l of the beers they brew, it cost 38 CZK (about €1.50 in 2010).

All in all, it is nice place to get a quick little bite to eat and try some interesting beers. Definitely worth a visit (or go to the Pivovarsky Klub) if you are in Praha.

I stayed at a fantastic (and inexpensive) hotel across the street from this place. I'm not into lagers or pilsners, so I was really happy that they brewed all kinds of other stuff!

The nettle beer is a must-try. So pretty and green! Honestly, the sour cherry beer was a bit disappointing (maybe because there are too many amazingly good cherry beers out there).

The venison goulash is amazing, but I can only handle so much Czech food. I think I went there at least 3 times during my stay in Praha.

Just outside the city center but close to the New Town Brewpub and U Fleku. This place makes all manner of weird flavored beers. I suggest sticking to the dark and light unfiltered/unopasteurized lagers; some of the best in Prague. Very tasty; but banana and nettle beer is not my thing. Go for the beer (they will serve it to you in a giant 4 liter thingy; food and service were solid. I had the braised/roast pig knee (Koleno) HUGE portion served with mustard, grated horseradish and cole slaw. I waddled out....

Went for dinner on a friends birthday back in December of 2007. He got one of the 4 liter tubes of the dark lager for himself, and the waitress looked at him like he was crazy. He managed to finish it in a pretty timely fashion with barely any help too. I got the eight beer sampler for 88 crowns I think. Pretty decent prices. The unfiltered light and dark lager are both quite good, and I really liked the wheat beer, despite its lower ratings. The flavored beers got a little questionable, but all were interesting, and the nettle was the only one that was downright nasty. The variety and ambitiousness of their beers really made Dum stand out from the other brewpubs I visited. The food was typical Czech, but pretty good.
