Strahov Monastery Brewery, Prague

4.2
#2 of 15 in Breweries in Czech Republic
Have some beer with your history at Strahov Monastery Brewery, located on the grounds of a Premonstratensian monastery. Perched on top of a hill leading up to Prague's castle, this microbrewery produces a beer named after Saint Norbert, the founder of the Premonstratensian religious order. Originally established in 1628, the brewery shut its production down in 1907. Painstakingly restored and reopened nine decades later, the brewery now includes a modern restaurant, also named after Saint Norbert. Stop by for a meal and a glass of dark or amber beer, brewed according to regulations set by a purity law enacted in 1516. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Prague holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Strahov Monastery Brewery and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Bad customer service. When they are busy, no talk no smile no explain and said wait! I guess waiter name is Martink who never smile and he just spoke perfect English when we asked the bill. He said service charge is not including(he looks like smiling to some people who could give some tips to him). And we ordered 460 and gave him 500 but we got the change every single small coin. I never got like that changes in Prague! I could left some tips but of course no tips for poor service. I will remember so bad place in Prague and a waiter who works for only tips! It's so terrible.
  • Food is nice but fries were cold... beer id good. The place is crowded and there 12 waiters not interested in getting you a place (not the only place where it happens tough..). More expensive than the average in Prague.
  • The restaurant was quite crouded, the waitress said to find a table for ourselves so we decided to take a beer and wait if someone will free a place. Later, they place some other people before us so we leave the place. The beer was good!
  • Hidden in a small backyard just around the corner of our hotel was this little gem. The perfect place to finish off an afternoon of activities downtown. After a well deserved, cold and tasty beer we got a short tour around the brewery. Very interesting to see how our drinks were brewed on site, all explained by our knowledgeable guide. Manufacturing is strictly for the restaurant needs which is a pity as all the beers we sampled were excellent. After the tour we had dinner where we had generous portions of good food. Mostly local dishes on the menu of great quality. Both the beer and the food is excellent. Quite crowded later in the evening but friendly and hospitable staff sorted it out in a very good way. Highly recommended, if nothing else then just for the beer.
  • The service was really great but it wasn’t super busy. It was a bit chilly but the patio was open so we sat there and it was cozy. Beer was good and food was great.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
