Prague
There’s something extra-special about Prague that sets it apart from the other big cities of Europe. Whether it’s the Gothic cathedrals and Baroque palaces, or the more than 200 gardens scattered across the city, Prague offers a true escape from the modern world. For architecture and history buffs, there’s really nowhere better to be. From the heart of Old Town Square to Prague Castle up on the hill, you could spend your days wandering up and down the river, marveling at the city. It’s also one of the classical music capitals of the world—be sure to catch a show at the Art Nouveau Municipal House (an architectural marvel, too). Don’t leave without throwing back a pint or two—travellers say Prague has some of the best beer in Europe (you’ll just have to see for yourself). We’ve got even more recs, and your full Prague itinerary below.

The best places to drink beer in Prague

When people ask me why I’ve lived in Prague so long (three decades now), I usually say it’s for the culture, but it might actually be for the beer. Czechs drink more beer than anyone else and pride themselves on making the world’s top Pilsner-style lager. (Who am I to disagree?) You’ll find great beer everywhere, but these are my favourite spots for a pint.

    The residential neighbourhood of Karlín is hipster central—and mostly devoid of tourists. Whenever I walk the streets (and dream about buying an apartment here), I pop into this industrial-style craft brewer for a glass or two. It has excellent sours, American ales, IPAs, and Czech-style light lagers—you’re spoiled for choice. Join the locals in the relaxing beer garden, but a heads-up, the mood turns raucous at night.
  • U Hrocha
    470
    I’ll admit, I’m biased—this might be my favourite Czech pub. The Pilsner Urquell beer on tap is said to be the purest in Prague. The vaulted ceilings give the place a snug, slightly upscale feel, which explains its popularity with the diplomats from the nearby British Embassy. Don’t let that fool you, this is a true everyman’s pub. The only issue is getting a table. To be safe, arrive after it opens at noon (really).
  • Restaurace U Fleku

    I used to avoid this centuries-old pub—founded in 1499—because it was too touristy for my taste. I’ve warmed up to it, though, for one reason: the exceptional quality of its dark lager, a rarity in a country where lighter, amber-coloured lagers are preferred. The dark beer here—crafted from water, hops, yeast, and barley—may be the best you’ll ever try. It also pairs beautifully with the pub’s roast pork and sauerkraut.
  • Klasterni Senk
    527
    Hop on Tram 22 to get to this 1,000-year-old monastery. Here, you can sample some off-the-beaten-path beers. The monastery’s microbrewery produces a highly rated standard lager, Benedict 12°, and dabbles in rarer brews like its (very good) stout. You can tour the brewery or simply down a few pints over a plate of pork knee, served at one of two bars on the grounds.
  • Hostinec U Černého vola
    19
    Sure, the staff at The Black Ox can be gruff. The small tavern, with its long, well-worn oak tables, hasn’t been prettied up for the benefit of visitors. But that’s not the point. The beers they serve—a standard lager, a perfectly poured Pilsner Urquell, and a dark lager from Czech brewer Velkopopovický Kozel—are as much a part of the fabric of the city as Prague Castle, just down the street.

    At this popular watering hole in Vinohrady, the 30-plus taps highlight local Czech craft brewers, like Clock or Sibeeria, as well as harder-to-find German- and Belgian-style beers. Expect a different assortment on each visit and a helpful bartender to guide you in your choice. Most people, naturally, come for the beer, but I love the BBQ chicken wings the kitchen turns out, too.
