#2 of 15 in Breweries & Distilleries in Czech Republic
Have some beer with your history at The Strahov Monastic 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 The Strahov Monastic Brewery and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • On the territory of the monastery are located 3 Café: old Norbert, Matushka, Inferno. All bars and beer menu miscellaneous. Liked the mother restaurant is located to the right of the stairs to the Pohorelec stop. Excellent pork kaleno, salad, beer! Huge portions, all very tasty. 5 + service! Old Norbert offers completely different menus and types of beer, but because the area is not as big as by mother, Crouch is very difficult, especially the company. In the courtyard stands a stand where you can buy beer, and stand behind. Rapolozheno thick at the top, the original town, takes its interior, but it is quite small. It is located in a cave or something the old premises of the monastery (in appearance resembles the crypt)), the menu is also pleasant. In all bars accept cards for payment. Access is very easy: Malostranska stop need pooehat by tram 22 or 23 a few stops to ost. Pohorelec. If you stand with your back to the door, you must cross the road on the left and a little go down to the end-to-end of the stairs in the building. How to pass the staircase from left to right are Mother and Old Norbert. Prices on food and beer is a bit above average, but it's worth it! Also it is close to the observation deck to get to it, it is necessary to pass through the Park, follow the signs and you will have a beautiful view of the city. Be sure to visit all three institutions!
