Strahov Monastery Brewery
Perched atop the city part of the Strahov Monastery compound and the lush surrounding Petrin Hill, the Strahov Brewery is a delightful find in the bustling city of Prague. Just steps from the massive Prague Castle complex, the microbrewery serves about ten variations of St. Norbert beer (3 all year round and 7 seasonally) and the brews are all delicious and fresh with crisp hints of unique flavors. The unfiltered and unfermented brews include a bitter Amber blend that is similar to a German Märzen, or a German Lager beer, and a dark Vienna brew from Dunkel. Seasonal brews vary with the summer featuring a strong wheat beer that is simply great, and an excellent Brown Ale in November, an ever-elusive beer in Prague, as well as a special Christmas brew. The traditional brewery serves tasty and traditional Czech cuisine and also features al fresco dining in the brewery courtyard. The brewery dates back to the 13th century and was closed in 1907. After a meticulous renovation the brewery reopened its doors to thirsty customers in 2000. The interior is a pleasant blend of wood, traditional décor and brewery tanks and equipment.
