Lomography Guide to Prague: Prague for Beer Lovers

9

Unfortunately for me, but fortunately for you, my boyfriend is a great beer lover and it's through this that I got to know places I would not visit otherwise. So if you like beer and small breweries, this article is just perfect for you.

Czech Republic is known for its beer and I do not think that I have to remind you all of the beer brands and types. However, I would like to point out some small breweries in Prague, which you might find to be an interesting place for a visit. They are usually hidden in small historical streets, producing there their own beer and even doing some special visits of the brewery itself for the curious visitors.

On Kremencova Street, there is one of the hidden breweries I mentioned, the brewery and restaurant called U Fleku. They offer usually traditional Czech food in combination with their own beer. You can visit their brewery and even buy some beer souvenirs. Similarly, another interesting place is U Medvidku, the small brewery which was established in the year 1466, produced beer till 1898 and was reopened in 2004.

Beer at Pivovarsky Dum

Then we also visited breweries called Novomestky Pivovar on Vodickova Street and Pivovarsky Dum on Jecna Street. My boyfriend enjoyed the beer very much — however, you have to be prepared that because of too many visitors and beer lovers, you will have to wait quite long till they notice you.

And maybe at the end, I can point out to your attention two pubs, which do not have their own brewery, but they are quite unique in one way or the other. The Prague Beer Museum on Dlouha Street is a pub with 30 kinds of Czech draught beer and Lokal is another pub located nearby, which is probably one of the longest pubs not only in Prague.

Lomo on!

    I dunno where I went but I enjoyed some Pilsner Urquell and - as usual - traditional Czech food in a very small place without so many tourists, the last time I have been there. So it's really worth to have a look besides the crowds. :)

    Yes, indeed, it's like here in Berlin. Lucky that we are living in such great cities.

    yeah u fleku is really touristy. if you go to prague with slovenian tourist agency they always take you there. and even when i go to prague by myself my friends always ask me did you go to u fleku? it's like the only thing they remember from prague :) i recommed a place called domeček. i think that means a little home? it's near old town square, little bit hidden, but really cute and quiet
