I've been to this brewpub 3 times, although on my first visit the pub was too crowded to handle my party of 5 or more people. But I was there long enough to see some strange looking beers, a couple of tables with giraffes, and a generally attractive appearance; I also noted a fine atmosphere and vowed to return if possible. This review is based on two return visits in July 2011.
This brewpub doesn't serve the largest number of different beers, but their variety can match the on-site brews of any pub I've ever been in. Besides the usual array of Czech beers -- light and dark lagers -- they have banana beer, the very odd nettle beer (it's naturally green), an excellent sour-cherry beer, coffee beer, beer champagne, beer brandy, and some others. Visitors can get a nice sampling wheel to try the standard and eccentric beers. Sampler aside, prices seem a bit high (by Czech standards), but the beer is very good quality and many are unique.
This pub is very near to a tram stop and walking distance to the Old Town section, but far enough from any main tourist area to attract, I think, more locals than tourists. My first trip here was with locals.
I ate here on both occasions and the food was very good each time. Service was professional if a bit less warm than some from other parts of the world might hope for. English menus are available and most servers speak some English. Menu features traditional Czech foods. There are several different seating areas, but not seats at the bar. Tours of the brewing facilities are available on occasion (I think depending on how busy they are.
I hope to return again, hopefully with a bunch of people so that I can have a giraffe at my table -- also to get a tour and find out more about both the 'regular' and the weird brews.

Place was slammed beyond belief, but we managed to get a table with speaking limited czech. The food was great, typical czech fare and weel done. I had the wheel or beers sampler but I can't rememeber them enough to write reviews. Service was shady at best but they were busy. Waitress was bitchy and didnt care much. I lived and czech for 6 months and understand the culture and how to order but this chick was rude. Overall, this place was great but sister pub pivoarsky Klub is way better. worth checking out be aware of crowds and going during peak hours.

It was midday and we were the only customers. The setting is rather simple, normal tables, not too much decoration and a working brewing equipment. Service was ok, but it could have been more friendly, it seemed that they would have preferred to use the opportunity to chat given there were very few customers in the pub.
No idea about the food, but beer was very good, including the nettle one.
Prices were rather high for Czech standards, but cheap for a visitor from almost any other European country. It is certainly worth visiting and trying their beers.

wandered over to this place from our hotel in the old town, maybe a 15 minute walk
nothing overly special with the atmosphere - main floor is primarily tables suited for serving food.
the food, as it so happens, was awesome. This brewprub is a great dinner option - i had the duck (massive) with dumplings and the menu was filled with "traditional czech" cuisine at very reasonable prices (all entrees below $10 american)
the beer was pretty good too - i had the light dark, bock, and coffee. i also sampled the champagne beer from the bottle, which was pretty nice.
it was a unique way to find out that its often customary to have communal seating in Prague. We were seated at a small 4-top where 2 lads were already eating. Awkwardness was avoided though, since we were speaking different languages
very happy with this spot

Decent sized place with probably around 12-15 tables scattered around upstairs. Had a number of beer-centric decorations. The wait staff was good, attentive, and fast and the food was out extraordinarily fast (although the couple next to me got their food just fast). Nice selection of Czech and psuedo-Czech food, with smaller dinners reasonably priced, having just been to Germany, the serving size seemed a little smaller for the regular size, but that was a nice change of pace. The goulash was good and the Bohemian dumplings were also quite good. They don't have a huge beer selection, but they have some unique offerings that they brew. I had the nettle beer and the coffee beer, both good and interesting, but not amazing. The beer is quite cheap, for ,3 l of the beers they brew, it cost 38 CZK (about 1.50 in 2010).
All in all, it is nice place to get a quick little bite to eat and try some interesting beers. Definitely worth a visit (or go to the Pivovarsky Klub) if you are in Praha.

I stayed at a fantastic (and inexpensive) hotel across the street from this place. I'm not into lagers or pilsners, so I was really happy that they brewed all kinds of other stuff!
The nettle beer is a must-try. So pretty and green! Honestly, the sour cherry beer was a bit disappointing (maybe because there are too many amazingly good cherry beers out there).
The venison goulash is amazing, but I can only handle so much Czech food. I think I went there at least 3 times during my stay in Praha.

Just outside the city center but close to the New Town Brewpub and U Fleku. This place makes all manner of weird flavored beers. I suggest sticking to the dark and light unfiltered/unopasteurized lagers; some of the best in Prague. Very tasty; but banana and nettle beer is not my thing. Go for the beer (they will serve it to you in a giant 4 liter thingy; food and service were solid. I had the braised/roast pig knee (Koleno) HUGE portion served with mustard, grated horseradish and cole slaw. I waddled out....

Went for dinner on a friends birthday back in December of 2007. He got one of the 4 liter tubes of the dark lager for himself, and the waitress looked at him like he was crazy. He managed to finish it in a pretty timely fashion with barely any help too. I got the eight beer sampler for 88 crowns I think. Pretty decent prices. The unfiltered light and dark lager are both quite good, and I really liked the wheat beer, despite its lower ratings. The flavored beers got a little questionable, but all were interesting, and the nettle was the only one that was downright nasty. The variety and ambitiousness of their beers really made Dum stand out from the other brewpubs I visited. The food was typical Czech, but pretty good.

Made my way out here on a cold Monday night in early January - it wasn't that hard to find once I got my bearings coming out of the subway stop. Was discouraged to see a line of about 20 people outside the door, but being alone, I managed to cut in and grab a spot at the bar. The bartender, who spoke neither English nor German nor Russian, made it clear to me that I could stay there as long as I had no food. OK, and thanks for the warm welcome.
The place is pretty non-descript, quite large and well-lit. The floor is checkerboard tile, with more checkerboard tile on the walls. The ceiling is high and industrial. Fairly new looking wooden tables and chairs, in two rooms, enough to seat maybe 150. The bar is tiny, less than two meters/yards across, with no stools. They clearly want you to sit. One waitress was willing to admit that she spoke a bit of English. Otherwise, you are on your own.
I had the sampler: pale, dark, Hefeweizen, sour cherry, coffee, banana, nettle and the monthly special - Tokai. Couldn't quite figure out what that last one was, but it was stronger and, frankly, better than the rest. The pale and dark were solid, but far from spectacular. The others were interesting, but I also had the impression that they were just flavored pales. Must admit, though, that the coffee was intense and the nettle very intriguing. The beers were in good shape and served at the right temperature in appropriate glassware. I had the impression that they do what they have to, but they do it only because they have to. There's not much passion here. Unfortunate.

I also had an adventure getting here, when in the end I was so close on a couple occaisions.
The bar room is nothing to write home about. A small little bar when you walk in, but I was shooed away - and told to sit.
A very nice waitress with just a little english helped me enough that I ordered a sampler. Some good, several gimmicky - like an apple beer. The pils was the best I had in Prague! Nothing much else jumped out at me - the dark lager was pretty good. Stout missed the mark.
If you want to avoid the typical pils bar scene in Prague, this worth a visit, particularly if you you are with a group. Being solo for the night, sitting at a table for 4 jsut didn't cut it.
