map showing U Medvidku Beer Hall in Prague
U Medvidku is a traditional Czech beer hall style pub, located close to both the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.

Whilst some pubs have veered towards the tourist dollar, U Medvidku has retained its traditional charm and is still a favourite with Czech locals.

U Medvidku dates from 1466. For over 500 years the building was a brewery, until the malt house was converted into the present day beer hall in the 20th century. The history of brewing is retained in the form of a microbrewery.

The original feel of the U Medvidku brewery remains to this day. This is a straight forward Czech pub, with various drinking areas, and it is large enough to accommodate several hundred people.

The interior is standard for a Czech pub - wooden furnishings and white-washed walls. The U-shaped bar replete with gleaming brass beer pumps is a focal point.

The star turn though is undoubtedly the beer (what else do you go to the pub for!). U Medvidku is a unique pub in Prague in that it has kegged beers, bottled beers, an onsite microbrewery and tank beer.

The tank beer process has only been adopted by a few pubs in Prague. And U Medvidku uses it for Budvar (Budweiser). The beer is delivered unpasteurised from the brewery by tanker lorry/truck and stored in the cellar in a huge tank, which makes the Budvar at U Medvidku the freshest in Prague.

The micro brewery meanwhile produces a variety of lagers and dark beers, including the infamous X Beer 33, the strongest beer in the world, and Oldgott which is a half-dark lager fermented partly in oak barrels.

Other than some questionable wine and a few hard spirits, there is very little else! This is a real beer-drinkers pub.

If you don't like beer and you don't like smoke, don't come. There is little or no music, but there is plenty of good pub atmosphere provided by the crowd. It is generally busy every afternoon and every night of the week.
