Fodor's Expert Review U Medvídků
A former brewery dating as far back as the 15th century, U Medvídků now serves draft Budvar shipped directly from České Budějovice, as well as its own super-strong beer X Beer 33, which is brewed on-site. It's perhaps the most authentic of the city center Czech pubs, which also means that it's often pretty busy, and service can be correspondingly slow. However, it's also big enough that you've got a good chance of finding a seat. The interior, including the taps, have a turn-of-the-20th-century feel. Occasionally, the bar offers exclusive Budvar brews available only at this location. There's a hotel on-site, too.
