Went through the place to check out the " micro" brewery upstairs. The beer hall ( the moajority of the place) seemed fun, but the beer is mostly Budvar. The upstairs area is small but interesting, with the open fermentation room right there to see. Food was pretty decent for the price, but took quite a while to get (was just 2 items, one an appetizer and one a side order). The service was not that good. Granted they are not english speaking, but they are catering to foreigners at places like this and I don't think english is really required when it comes to paying attention and getting orders to you in a reasonable time.
And then, the bier...The beer was good, though only 3 were available. The 33 they claim to be the strongest in the world, or something like that. It is smooth and tasty, but strong? Not compared to strong beers you can get in the US or elsewhere. For CZ and surrounding countries, probably so.
All in all, probably worth a stop if you are near that street.

I was quite amazed by the vastness of this place, with all the different bars and areas. The confusing staff has us moving around with no explanation, and then ordering drinks at the bar only to find that we couldnt sit a the tables in the dining room, and finding no seating in the crowded little bar area. It honestly wasnt a great experience, but it was partly bad luck. The selection is only 4 beers that I saw: Budvar light and dark, and the two house beers, the x30 being only bottled and super expensive. But WOW was I impressed with Oldgott; a great dark lager. I would definitely go back just to drink it again, and hopefully get a seat this time.

This place is deceivingly large. Walk inside and to the left is a smallish bar with maybe room for 30 people among various booths. Walk to the right, though, and you enter a large restaurant with hundreds of seats, and a bar along the left hand wall. There is also a courtyard out back with some seating, which looked rather nice. Unfortunately, there were no seats available in any of these areas, so we got shoved in the back room. While it was still nice back there, it was only my group and one other table, which greatly disappointed me as I heard the accordion playing and singing in the main room. Oh well.
The service was pretty bad. The servers acted exasperated every time they came to take an order, and there were not exactly frequent in their trips to check on us. The selection consisted of a beer they brewed (which was somehow not available on tap, only in bottle), which unfortunately tasted an awful amount like Red Oak and Carolina Blonde... huge buttery mess. Anyway, I stuck with Budvar, of which they had both the light and the dark, served in appropriate glassware.
The food was decent... certainly nowhere near the best I had during my visit to Praha, but palatable. The benefit of all this is that most entrees were around $5, and Budvar was 28 kronin for a .5L (this converts to about $1.20).
I'd say it's worth a trip to go here, if for nothing aside from the jovial ambience. Just make sure you get a seat outside or in the main room.

As with all the other reviews a labyrinth of rooms and eating areas as well as a store and a hotel. You can only get the microbrew, however, at the brewpub upstairs. The restaurant downstairs sells Budvar. The brewpub is a lot of fun with two long tables and lots of hearty local foods. A strong smell of boiling wort throughout. I met the brewer and we discussed yeast and hops. The two main beers, light and dark, are very good. The "33" seems under attenuated, very sweet and not as strong as they suggest. Would be a great place if you can find it.

Huge let down. Smokey and service was not great even for prague standards. Anthony Brourdain let me down here.
Food was good but nothing too different or better than an avg czech pub cuisine. A loaded menu or choices which is typical.
The regualr dark lager was solid but the imperial lager claime dto be the strongest in the world was pretty bad and hard to get down. Just not made very well.
we had issues with ordering. I speak decent czech but my family members dont speak at all and they struggled and the waitress did not seem to care or try to help. They were brought the wrong meals. i told them in the future I would order for them, but I wante dto give them a shot. Fail....

Typical Czech pub set up with dark wood tables and chairs and many locals. Three beers included a Budvar Dark, Budvar Light, and their house beer (Old Gott semi dark lager). All were quite fine. I’d never had Budvar Dark and enjoyed the prune-like, dry and mineral character of the beer. And their house beer I think is a must for beer lovers who visit the city; fruity, solid hop bite, dusty, almost like a wine. Food was average. Would return

I came across this brewpub on the way to the Old&New Town Beer Tour of Praha. It is right next to a mall and when you walk in, a gift shop surrounds you. Only 2 levels tall, I decided to go upstairs to where the "brewery" was located.
Very easy going and cozy place. Was very dead on the top level (on a Friday Night) when I came here. Everyone must have been @ U Fleku or one of the other beer halls around town. I enjoyed taking pictures of this place because of how different it was and re-tracking what I saw in Prague that day. Downstairs had a few tables filled and a couple people at the bar but I just wanted to enjoy a brew before going onto the Beer Tour.
While ordering a 0,3 L of the X beer 33, it was tapped from somewhere in the back room... Such a strong brew, I can't say this was an Euro Strong Lager but more like a Barleywine.
After presenting the beer to me, I didn't see my waitress again after my order and paying her upfront. I'm guessing she was the only one around the brewpub that night, but still not a very entertaining place.
There were only 3 beers available at the time, the U Medvidku 1466, X Beer 33, and their Oldgott. I chose this X Beer 33 because of its strength and the glass that was on their beer menu saying "Nikdy nepti sam! Don't Drink Alone".
I wouldn't mind coming back here to enjoy some of their other brews but if I come back to Prague, there are many other places I would rather get to than re-visiting this place. I would suggest stopping in here if in Prague for more than 2 weeks but not for a weekend.

U Medvídků is the local pub where the locals seem to hang, which was an encouraging sign. There were some tourists (like everywhere else) but they looked like they stumbled in. As far as I could tell, I was the only one there specifically for the beer.
It is obvious that they do not cater to tourism. The walls are bland; the tables scratched. All of this adds to the charm. The two beers they make are superior, even for the Czechs. Our server was communistically enthused and coldly efficient. She handled a lot of tables, but we never saw a smile. And there certainly wasn't any banter.
The food was good and entirely Czech, meaning dumplings (closer to thick bread) and sausage. We also had fried bread with "beer cheese". My arteries bristled in protest.
That said, for three people with a large meal and beer, the bill (with gratuity) was under $50. Oddly, this is a more expensive meal in Prague when you are away from the tourist sights.

Saturday evening (March 2009) and very busy. We were found a table in a side room and missed the 'buzz' of the main eating and drinking areas. No problem though, the beers and food were top class and we enjoyed the tranquility of the smaller room.
On entering you are straight into a small area with a seated lady behind a counter selling bottles, and 'stuff' from the brewery.
If you turn left there is a bar which sells their own beer. Turn right, as we did and you are in the main hall and taken to a table, at least we were. An upstairs bar stays open later, so I'm told. It is a little wierd that they sell different beers on tap in different rooms. Their own X-Beer and Oldgott Barrique are however available in them all, but in bottle form only.
I bought both of their brewed beers on leaving (from the aforementioned lady) and drank the normal Budvar when inside, they have 5 different Budvars upstairs.
The food was lovely, I had a stuffed Pork Loin with spuds in a pepper sauce and my wife had the Stroganoff, nothing went back to the kitchen except the licked plates.

U Medvídků is a labyrinthine brewpub located on Na Pertýně in the central part of the city ("old town"). As we walked everywhere I am unsure what the parking situation is, although there appeared to be street parking nearby.
There are multiple entrances and multiple levels to the brewpub. The main floor has a restaurant, and evidently there is a hotel there too. Talk about a dream come true, a place that makes there own beer where your only concern is stumbling back to your room at the end of the evening. The top level has a small bar and a low ceiling, and there are tables and booths throughout.
Service here is friendly and helpful, especially considering we did not speak the language.
The brewpub offers a few beers, including the flagship Oldgott and X-33, both of which we purchased to take home. The bottles did not seem as fresh as I expected, but overall the beers were decent. They also serve Budvar at the brewpub.
We did not try any food during our visit.
Overall this place has great character and an outstanding location, and is a must visit on a trip to Prague.
