The Czech Republic has a long-standing relationship with beer, with brewing happening in the Břevnov Monastery since the Middle Ages.

From traditional brews, to microbreweries, and great beer gardens, Prague is full of places to enjoy the famous drink. To ensure you taste the best, check out our guide to the Best Beer Spots in Prague.
Letna Beer Garden
Imagine drinking Czech Pilsner under a shady grove of chestnut trees with stunning views of Prague. Sounds like a dream, right? Then you have to check out Letna Beer Garden. It opens in Spring and closes some time into Autumn (weather depending). The views alone make it a worthy spot to visit, especially at sunset, but it doesn’t stop there. They also have an impressive selection of beers, other drinks, and food, including beers from local craft breweries. Letna Beer Garden has a very chill atmosphere surrounded by greenery, It’s easily one of the best outdoor beer spots in Prague.
Beer Garden Riegrovy Sady
Located in the charming Vinohrady neighbourhood, Riegrovy Sady’s Beer Garden is another outdoor place to enjoy a beer in the company of locals. Especially in summer! Apart from local drinks like Pilsner, Kozel, and cider, we recommend heading to the Zemsky Brewery stand to try their specials, like an Indian Brown Ale, or a seasonal beer. And if you love football, this place is a great spot to catch the game. The Beer Garden is open from April to October.
U Kunštátů – Craft Beer Club
Located in the heart of the Old Town in a 13th century building, you’ll find U Kunštátů Craft Beer Club, one of the best beer spots in Prague. They have over 100 different types of local beers from small and independent breweries, so you’re bound to find something you like. Order a set to simply experiment and make your own customised tasting. They also offer traditional Czech snacks which pair well with beer, such as Nakladany Hermelin (Marinated cheese) and Utopenci (pickled sausages).
Gastro Pub 20 PIP
Gastro Pub 20 PIP is famous for their 21 taps of local and international craft beer in a fine atmosphere. The modern, London-style interior has two compact rooms – one on the ground floor with tables, and one bar room upstairs. The pub is decorated with prints of famous works by artists like Michelangelo. They offer beers on tap from Czech craft brewers such as Matuška, Permon, Břevnov, Kocour, and Antoš. And you can also order food here. We highly recommend a Pinsas (small pizza), or try Czech tartar.
Beer Geek is another one great beer spot in Prague, and is appropriately named! They have 32 taps, from a Belgian sour to Czech dark lager, and a whole host of other international beers. They don’t have an entirely set menu and often feature new beers from all corners of the world, so there’s always something new to try! However, some items remain a staple, so we recommend trying Sibeeria West Cost IPA, Lollihop, and Coconut & Vanilla porter. They’re also known for their incredible chicken wings, so save some room for them!
Into Belgian beer? Then had to Gulden Draak Bierhuis, where you can taste the best of Belgian traditional and family craft breweries. It’s a small and cozy beer, but has a stylish black, white, and gold facade with high mirrored windows. The interior is simple, but is completely dedicated to beer. Gulden Draak has 16 different taps, including varieties like Gulden Draak 9000 Quadrupel, Piraat Triple Hop, and Celis White.
If you’re not familiar with beer varieties, please keep in mind that most Belgian beers have high alcohol percentages, so they might be stringer than what you’re used to. Having said that, they’re really suitable for cold and windy days!
Bad Flash Krymská
Last on our list for the best beer spots in Prague is Bad Flash Bar is located on top of Krymská Street, neighbouring Czech Inn. It has 12 taps that rotate a fine selection of craft beer, brewed by some of the best Czech microbreweries like Zhůřák, Beskydský Pivovárek, and Tambor. They also feature imports from Germany or UK, so it’s not just about the Czech beers here. As for food, they serve a simple menu of Czech pub treats, like pickled cheese, pâté, and spreads. It has a minimal interior with a bit of a rough around the edges look. The unfinished walls and simple wooden furniture give Bad Flash a feel that’s relatively unique to Prague, but certainly worth a visit!
