Beers were great here after the steep walk up the hill in Prague to this great brewery.

One of my favourite places in Prague, the atmosphere in the beer garden, surrounded by the old monastery is extremely enjoyable. It's been extremely hot days, so when we arrived, the moment we sat down we were already greeted with a bowl of cool water for our dog. The IPA was very refreshing, and the summer ale they have is very appropriate for the weather and ambiance.

This bar/restaurant is separated into 2 parts. There is a smoking section only bar and a non-smoking section restaurant. I'm sure you can get food in the bar area as well since that seems to be the case throughout Prague but I can't attest to that personally since my wife and briefly ducked into the bar, smelled the smoke, and proceeded directly to the restaurant. This is one of the few micros in Prague that seems to brave the ale side of beer. As one person I met in Prague said, "We in Prague are very conservative about our beer and generally stick to lagers". This is not the case with this micro where ales are as common as lagers. Very good selection and brew some of the more bitter beers that I tasted in Prague.

Located at the top of a hill and just across from the monastery it offer a gorgeous sweeping view of Prague. If you have walked up the hill than you will certainly in within your rights to reward yourself with a beer here! The food is fantastic and is a classic representation of hearty eastern European and especially Czech meals. One of my favorite places in Prague to kill some time.

I made a special point to visit this microbrewery; it was worth the effort. However, it being located on the grounds of Strahov Monastery, the effort was more of a pleasure. It consists of two sections: the brewery, on the left side of the courtyard, where the beer is actually brewed; it is a small room with a period interior that seats about 50 people. I visited this section. They serve a full and extensive menu and provide friendly and efficient service.

Across the courtyard (on the right as you enter) is St. Norbert’s Restaurant, a larger, two-storied building that seats about 150 people. The courtyard has seating during the summer months.

The beer was exceptional. They serve both an amber and a dark. This is a must for beer lovers visiting Prague. A gateway to the left as you leave will take you out to a terrace overlooking Prague and down to Mala Strana. (This reveiw is also entered under "Klasterni Pivovar.")

We stumbled upon the Klašterní Pivovar while walking around after a trip to the Prague Castle, despite it being on the list of places we wanted to check out. Must have been fate. The brewpub is located on top of a hill next to a pretty monastery off Strahovské nádvoří. The entrance appears to be gated so unsure as to whether you can drive to it.

There is a small interior bar and a big patio, which is where we sat. The menus outline the brewing process which is pretty cool. On our visit there were only 3 of their beers on draught, including a special Easter beer. They also sell bottles to go. All of the beers were good.

Service was good on a weekend afternoon. Our server spoke a little English and was friendly.

We did not try any food on this visit.

Overall this place was probably our favorite beer spot because of the perfect weather, good beer and nice atmosphere. The fact that a group of monks came from the monastery next door for beers while we were there said it all. Definitely worth seeking out.

My wife and I hiked up the hill to here twice, and it was well worth the effort, especially when your taste runs to something other than pilsners (which are terrific in the CR, but often the only choice).

The food was hearty and enjoyable; especially—as another reviewer pointed out—the beer-based dishes.

No problems with the waitstaff. If you're used to the "Hi, my name is..." style of service here in the states, you might find it somewhat impersonal, but keep in mind that English is a second tongue here. If you're not easily fluent in another language, it's hard to make small talk in it.

PS: If you're also a wine drinker, be sure to try Czech wines from Moravia. They're excellent, but rarely exported.

other reviews seem to exaggerate the distance - its no more than 10 minutes past the castle, and the hill is nothing to be afraid of

we found this place after wandering through a few neighboring establishments and realizing they weren't quite right.

maybe i misunderstood, but this is a brewpub adjacent to a monastery, not one connected or within a monastery.

there was a pretty large outdoor terrace area and we snagged the last table. the interior was pretty cool with large kettles and cool decor, but it was a beautiful day so we kept outside

typical with other praha brewpubs, there were 5 or so taps. i tried the IPA (only one i saw in Praha, and actually quite nice), the dark, and the amber. Technically i just sipped my +1's amber, which i was thankful for because it wasnt that great

nice spot - the monastery wasnt as cool as i'd hoped, but you might as well wander over here from the castle. menu looked good but we didnt eat as i had some killer beer goulash at Mlejnice near the old town square for lunch

I am quite fond of the dark beer at the Cloister Restaurant and brewery, so I come back again and again. Sadly, I keep missing the brewery's single batch seasonals.

The restaurant is located within the grounds of the Strahov monastery, up on the hill past Prague castle and adjacent to Petrin Park. I usually hit it as a lunch spot if I'm in the area of the castle but have also had dinner there.

There are three eating areas, the patio, a small restaurant in the brewery and a larger room on the other side of the patio. I quite prefer the outdoor seating, but have also enjoyed a meal on the brewery side.

The service is average for Prague. The selection is 2-3 house brews and a line or two of a mass produced Czech beer (Budvar, I think).

The prices are in line with it's tourist friendly location, but are a bit high for Prague.
