Fred's Top Picks

My 'Top Picks' are those pubs I always make an effort to visit when I am in town.

Fred lives in Los Angeles but ocassionally travels to Prague. You can follow him on twitter as @fredwaltman or read his twitter feed below

Note that we regularly update what constitutes a top pick so places can be relegated from the list if their beer range dips or there are other significant changes.


Imports and Czech beers. Food is some good chicken wings and some meat and cheese plates


Tap room for the Hostomice brewery


Food after 5pm. English menu now available.


Main bar 11 taps, basement bar 17 taps.


Zlý Časy A Fred top pick  Full menu WiFi available

Three different bars in one building, each with different taps. Attached bottle shop.


Honorable Mention

These are pubs I very much enjoyed but they are just a hair below the level of a "Top Pick" or I need another visit or two to confirm that they are worth a "Top Pick."

Únětice 10° and 12º plus 9 rotating taps. The pub moved in late 2017 (not far from the original location).


There are actually two drinking places in the monastery courtyard. The original Šenk which is a restaurant and the new Sypka (Granary) which is more of a tap room with limited food selection.


Gastropub 20 Pip  Fred Honorable Mention WiFi available Closed Sunday Open 11am or earlier New entry in the Guide in 2015

Formerly "Craft Beer Pub" but not much seems to have changed except for the name and the addition of some food items to the menu. Still a great selection of Czech and quality international beers. "20 Pip" translates as "20 Tap" (even though they have 21 taps)


Two house beers (contract brewed) and eight (good) guest beers.


OSSEGG Praha  Fred Honorable Mention Full menu WiFi available Open 11am or earlier New entry in the Guide in 2018 Brewpub.

Originally listed as a taproom, they do have a small brewery on site. They claimed all the beer were brewed onsite


Bottle shop and bar.


Taps half Czech, half quality imports. Pub is basically unmarked from the outside, a small sign in one of the windows. Worth finding, though.
