Beer halls in Prague

Keen to test out the legendary Czech Beer when I head there this week.

Has anyone got any suggestions for some beer halls or pubs to check out while I am there?

there must be 1000's of threads on this subject so do a search using the box at the top of tha page and you will get loads of info, or just search my name and you will get most of them.

In the meantime

http://www.classiccitybrew.com/prague.html

praguebeergarden.com/pubs/…

these websites will get you started, there are quite a few threads about beer and where to drink it recently on the forum so just scroll down and have a look.

Beer halls are not the only places to drink great beer and some good stuff can be had in just about any pub or resturant but there are some places that are that little bit better.

where are you staying and we can maybe make some suggestions for that area.

this is a great beer blog and you will get l;ots of info from it, worth buying his book ,Prague a Pisshead's Pub Guide.

it ia about the quality of the beer rather than the quality of the pub but from experience most of the pubs are pretty good anyway.

the person that writes the blog come on this forum quite often, listen to him, he knows you know.

not really any beer halls per se..classic Czech Pubs all over the place

get away from the center for the cheapest beer...often cheaper than cola or water itself

one famous one in Old Town is the Golden Tiger/zlatý tygr- if it is full try back...bartenders and waiters don't like people meandering around for a table and occuping the aisleway.....if you see a spot, grab it and you'll likely share a table with others... be careful, beers are free flowing i.e. automatically brought to your table -so when you are finished, give some signal or indication you don't care for another beer

most guide books also have suggestions

.........

take a walk Letna Par.. (metro nome area towards the castle district)

great views overlooking the city and several beer kiosk throughout the park..... you can't go wrong

My favourite subject! :-)

Typical, very Czech and very smokey is U Cernaho Vola, 107 Loretanske Namesti (not too far from castle).

Down below in Mala Strana, you will find a basic, local beer hall U Kocoura at 2 Nerudova.

In the Zizkov area, you will find U sadu, with an interesting selection of well kept beers, and very good food - kitchen open to 2am.

WILDCARD - Not strictly a beer hall, but a Prague institution (for me anyway) is an excellent pub on the outskirts called Pirvni Pivni Tramway (first pub on the tramway). Very well run, great selection of quality beers, large whisky selection and even a humidor with Cubans. The pub has a bit of a tram theme going on.

Take the 11 tram poss. from I P Pavlova to Sporilov, which is the end of the line. Fall out of the tram, straight into the pub - the tram stops outside. Don't judge this pub by the outside appearence, it's very different inside.
