AP and her pick of the litter at pivovarsky dum

this post is a continuation of the brew highlights from last year’s european adventure.

after swinging by pivovarský klub in prague, AP and I decided to visit the source of their house brews, pivovarský dům.

  • pivovarský dům was definitely different from its counterpart.  whereas pivovarský klub was cool and somewhat modern, pivovarský dům was hot and had a funky mixed atmosphere of copper brew equipment and diner-style checkerboard tile.
  • the beers here were different as well – we ordered up a sampler and received a wide variety of their brews, including banana, coffee, cherry, and nettle beers.
  • all the above beers were definitely interesting, but I’m not sure I could down a pint of any of them.  however, their wheat beer and standard lager were very drinkable.
  • overall, this place was an interesting stop, but if I had to do it over again I would probably have skipped it, despite the novelty of their beer selection.

a great house pilsener at pivovarsky klub

this post is a continuation of the brew highlights from last year’s european adventure.

after a long trek out to holesovice and pivni galerie (review soon!) in the czech republic, AP and I were in desperate need of refreshment.  pivovarský klub definitely came through nicely.

  • this place had a great bottle selection (200+ bottles) that included many american/west coast offerings.  it was pretty amazing to see some local bottles from places like stone brewing so far from home.
  • the downstairs bar was amazing too – bottles lined the walls and the modest tap selection was top notch.  the traditional food was great too.
  • I tried out the dum stepan from their house brewery, pivovarsky dum – it was a great czech pils that I wish I could get more often.
  • I also had a svijany maz from svijany brewery – this beer doesnt seem to get much love on beeradvocate, but I remember it as hiding its 11%abv well and being quite drinkable and refreshing.
  • AP had the lipan from these guys in drazic (I think).  she also had her now-favorite beer, the pivo svetly lezak from opat aka pivovar broumov, a brewery whose offerings have been impossible to find here in the states (much to AP’s disappointment).
  • overall, this place was comfortable, relaxing, and had great service.  I will definitely make a point to stop by again the next time I am in the area.
