Lokál Dlouhá Pub

best beer in Prague - Lokál

Pilsner Urquell Beer is the favorite Czech beer and here you will get the one that tastes the best in Prague. The beer you can order here is draught straight from the tanks via the shortest route into the pint glass, where it remains fresh until the last sip. There are three variations of this typical Pilsner beer – “slice”,  “sweet” and “creme”. If you want an unfiltered beer, you can get the Kozel Beer in one of three variations. You can also enjoy great and very affordable typical Czech cuisine in this pub. The food is homemade and freshly prepared. This pub’s decor is typical for old Czech pubs (even though this pub is new and clean) and we’ve gotta say that locals love it here. Also the location is great – just 5 minutes from the Old Town Square.
Price for 0,5l (a large pint glass) is 1,6.

T-Anker Restaurant

best beer in Prague - Tanker

If you rather prefer a large variety of beers, instead of trying the most Czech popular, T-Anker Restaurant will be the right choice for you. Every week they change their beer menu and ther 9-faucet has the best Czech and world specials. A cooperation and support of small Czech breweries is this restaurant’s main idea. Evidence of beer art is undoubtedly the brewery Bernard, Matuska or Břevnov. In the art of brewing gives the owner of the piece itself and therefore is absolutely excellent beer and the liquor perfect fit for every occasion.
Their stocks have also bottled beers and up to 60 species from around the world in one place. We’ve visitted this restaurant many times and there’s an undeniable con – the service. The staff makes you often feel like you’re invisible. However, the beer is absolutely wonderful. Food is okay but nothing special.
Since this restaurant is located on a terrace of the Kotva Store, it might be hard to find its entrance. We recommend to enter the Kotva Store (OD Kotva) and then take the elevator to the 5th floor. There’s also an separate entrance but for a tourist it would be really hard to find.
Price for 0,5l (a large pint glass) starts at 1,6.

První Pivní Tramway (‘First Beer Tram’) Pub

best beer in Prague - První Pivní Tramway

Yes, we know how bad it looks. But if you love beer, this really is one of the best places in Prague. This pub is at the last station of tram number 11, in a building which once served the tram staff. The pub has been in operation for 17 years. In 2004, the so-called fourth tap was added to the three permanent beers available, and rotating on the fourth tap, one barrel at a time, are various specials. Since then, the idea has spread to many other establishments. Currently, there are eight taps, predominantly with rotating beers from medium and small brewers mainly from the Czech Republic. This beer bar with its quirky atmosphere and distinctive history is a founding member of the ALLIANCE P. I. V., which means you can be certain of well-kept beer, a good variety of beers, and most importantly raising beer awareness – via informative ‘beer-sheets’. The bar offers a wide selection of first class whiskeys and rums, and you may order small snacks or steak if you wish to eat. Worth a note: In May 2009 “První Pivní Tramway” was recommended in The New York Times magazine column ‘36 hours in Prague’.
Price for 0,5l (a large pint glass) starts at 1.
