If you ever visit Prague and you are a true beer lover, make it a point to go here! Walking there it didn't seem like we were in the right location, given the surrounding buildings and what not. Make sure you go all the way downstairs!! It's about 1-2 floors below ground level and it has this cavernous type feel to it. I did not have a chance to try all 20+ beers on tap, but the ones we did try were very good. Mostly high ABV% and darker beers, but I wanted to try some unique Praha beers.

100% glad we stopped in. And it's really cheap! No more than 70 crowns for a 0.5L

Visited Aug 2016 - Fantastic bar that should be on anybodies agenda. I visited in early afternoon and only one of the bars was open but still had a great selection of mainly Czech beers on tap and large selection of mainly international bottles. Provide a beer menu for the taps. Beers tasted were of as very high quality. Recommended. Also don't forget to visit the bottle shop next door which is an Aladdins Cave of bottles. Huge selection there.

The most interesting beers I found in Prague were here. Several Czech brewed craft beers with citrusy and/or American hops were on tap, there is a nice little menu describing each beer on tap, of course it is in Czech but the names of hops are a universal language I guess. They also had a small but quality selection of Czech, Belgian, German, Dutch, and even a few American craft beers in bottles in a small cooler. I recall seeing Schlenkerla and Flying Dog in there. An affiliated bottle shop next door had a very nice selection of craft beers from Czech Rep and Europe (different opening hours, the bottle shop closed at 6 or so when we visited). This place is small, the atmosphere is fine but nothing special, it was not crowded when we visited. The bartender would answer questions and was polite but reserved. It's a bit out of the way so if you are in Old or New Town you'll need a cab or the light rail/tram. Write my directions down, trust me you will need them! Take tram 24 or 7 (toward south/east from Old/New Town) and get off at Otakarova. Walk toward the big underpass. Before you reach the underpass take a right on Na Zameke. In just a minute or two you will reach Cestmirova, then turn left and it is a few doors down. It is only 5 minutes walk from the Otakarova stop but we spent 30 minutes wandering blindly as this place is off the street map I had, in a non-touristy area, and no one speaks English (which is of course normal, we're not in England!). It looks like the tram stop at Namestri Bratri Synku is even closer but it wasn't clear if the tram stopped there (little arrows instead of stops on my tram map), but the Otakarova is barely 5 minutes walk and a sure thing. Worth a visit if you are a serious beer explorer, this is one of a very few non-corporate-owned 'free taverns' that sell beer from the small Czech microbreweries that can't get a tap elsewhere but are brewing very good beer.

Unassuming downstairs pub on first glance, but lots of beer related decorations gives it a homey atmosphere matched with a friendly staff.
Be prepared to be amazed at the selection of Czech microbreweries and Belgian/German beers available on tap (approx. 24 different taps). They also have a wider selection available cold from beer fridges also located in the bar. Selection is quite varied, czech lagers, black lagers, ales, wheat beers and usually a rauchbier.
Prices are very reasonable given its location, but easily accessible by trams/buses from city center.
Recently went non-smoking in the downstairs portion.
Would recommend to any true beer fan!

With 24 taps of some of the best Czech beers with many more available bottled (mostly foreign), it is the best selection I have seen in any Czech bar. Simply excellent.

The bar itself is small (about 8-9 tables, max. 8 places at the bar) and from what I have heard, it can be very crowded during the evenings, I visited it during the day when most of its seats were taken anyway and all tables were reserved from 19.00. A bit smoky as well, but that might change in the future, depending on implementation of EU smoking legislation.

Service is friendly and prices are set rather high for Czech standarts, but even the most expensive 0.5 l beer never exceeds 2.5 eur, it is usually around 1.5 eur.
