Pub Cable TV Dělnická 27
The Kabelovna bar opened in March this year. One of the three owners, Lukáš Rychtařík, could talk about it for hours. He doesn’t want to box into a “hipster” or “trendy” business.
More than stickers, the quality of beer is important to him, whether it is lager from a group brewery or a craft type of beer flavored with shiitake mushrooms and miso paste. Ecology is also important for the company, which is why, for example, it imports beer mainly from Prague and its surroundings, by electric cars, and also offers vegan snacks, which according to them burden the environment much less than the meat industry. One of the founders is the singer Ben Cristovao. The more traditional beers on the Kabelovna tap are represented by the Šedivák brewery from the housing estate in Bohnice. They cook ten and twelve there, which, according to Rychtařík, are very popular and are also given to by people who do not like to experiment. The offer of craft beers with non-traditional flavors is constantly changing, you can taste both “ipu” with mango flavor and wheat beer with hibiscus.
On days, the company is temporarily closed for technical reasons.
“The company is visited by two groups of customers. One consists of trendy and hipster places, which they learn about through a social network. They are interested in who is behind it or what is taking place here, and this includes people aged 18 to 35. However, local regulars also found their way here. Some trends are stolen from them and they like it because of good beer and service. “
In Kabelovna, younger guests tend to taste new types of beer, while older ones like to stick to their favorite. According to Rychtařík, however, it is often the case that someone orders one type and tries something new at the end of the evening. Unconventional beers often have a higher alcohol content, so they are not even suitable for full-time drinking in a pub.
Inn in the Brewery Poupětova 12
The owner, tap and operating in one person Pavel Lukács from Hostinec u Pivovaru is a type of “pub” who knows every regular. With regular customers, he is even in the same chat group on social networks, where he writes to them every day what he is up to. The inn has thus become a favorite place for many beer enthusiasts, although Lukács only opened it a year ago.
The basis of the offer is lager from Budvar. Of the craft types, the most popular are “aly”, ie top-fermented English beers from the Antoš or Zichovec breweries with five percent alcohol. “Today we have Sherpa 16 from the Permon microbrewery. It has 7.5 percent alcohol, which is why it is more suitable in the fall, “says Lukács.
“It’s half and half. Some like to try new species and some stick to confidence. There are people who are stuck only on lagers because they are bitter and are used to it. “Aly” are also bitter, but they are too aromatic for someone. “
Lukács notes that in recent years, companies with non-traditional types of beer have been established in Holešovice. However, not everyone likes this development. On the site of the Inn, a classic Czech pub, formerly supporters of Lukács even verbally attacked because he took “their pub and sells only overpriced beers”.
Bookbinder Tusarova 25A
Knihkopec is a company combining a bookstore and a garden with a bar. The owner Jakub Růžička does not hide his passion for quality literature and good beer. He used to work in large bookstores and corporations, but according to him, everything revolved too much about marketing and money. In a small bookstore, on the other hand, he values the human approach and is happy to help people choose books. It works so that when you come for a beer and have time, you can look at books and possibly choose one. Although the bookstore is not the for-profit part of the company, without it, according to Růžička, it would not be the same. The company has been in operation since spring 2016.
All beers tapped in Knihkopec come from the Chříč Brewery, a small craft business in the northern Pilsen region. The basis of the offer is the classic lager of the eleven, which is complemented by specials such as “ipa”, “apa”, “ale” or Stout dark beer.
“I think that new types of beer are tasted mainly by brewers. Those who know a lot about him and love him are not afraid to examine her. “
Although Růžička praises the fact that companies with non-traditional beer are growing in Holešovice, in Knihkopec the classic mainly eleven points. According to him, good lager is still the basis in the country. Růžička confirms that non-traditional beers are not made for full-time drinking due to their often high alcohol content: “You simply can’t have sixteen thirteen in a pub. But it’s good to have the thirteen at the end. ”
The inner block Tusarova 31
Vnitroblock was established in the autumn four years ago on the site of a former factory. Lukáš Žďárský and Jakub Zajíc are responsible for reviving the space, who are also behind, for example, the “resurrection” of places such as the Café Looking for a Name or the Radlice Cultural Sports Center. Vnitroblock acts as a “multifunctional refuge”, as it presents itself on the Internet. In addition to the café, customers will find a clothing store, barber shop or visit the exhibition.
The staff in the café taps bitter Budvar 33 lager or various beer specials. Beer has only been brewed here since last August.
“For example, we are organizing a ‘Beer with Grandpa’ event, which is about the intertwining of generations – 20-year-olds will come from a 70-year-old grandparent, for example, so the composition of customers is quite diverse.”
While the older generation, according to Pešák, tends to stay grounded when it comes to drinking beer, the opposite is true for young customers. According to Pešák, “Ipy”, “apy” and all these “sour dogs” are much more interesting for them than classic lager.
Slaughterhouse 78 Slaughterhouse 33
Slaughterhouse 78, like Vnitroblock, offers in addition to sitting over beer and other cultural activities. For example, exhibitions and theater performances are held here – among other things, it is the home stage of the Cirk La Putyka ensemble. The company, thanks to which not only gastronomy but also the artistic sphere came to life in Holešovice, has been in operation since November 2014.
Slaughterhouse 78 has in its drink menu beers from Budweiser Budvar, including standard lagers, as well as a selection of beers from mini-breweries. Budvar established cooperation with smaller breweries two years ago.
“We also offer a wider range of specials to make it interesting even for younger clients who require a different range than the classic lager. But with the arrival of a new type of lager (bitter lager Budvar 33), I can say that the flow of standard beer has also risen a bit. ”
Urban also believes that Holešovice is changing. “New companies are moving here and at the same time there is a program that is reviving the place,” he says. According to Urban, it is difficult to determine what age group prevails in the bar in the Slaughterhouse. “Due to the theater, it is probably not possible to do research based on the average consumer, but as a consumer of culture. We have to react a lot to what the program is used in the theater, and the clientele itself is formed accordingly. “
Marina Brewery Jankovcová 12
The Marina Brewery opened to the inhabitants of Holešovice and other clients in February 2013. The first Prague burgher brewery existed nearby from 1897 to 1998. Years after closing, Gabriel’s home brewery has tried nine fortunes here. However, it functioned more like a club brewery and the general public did not have the opportunity to offer a golden drink to taste.
The brewery offers Holešovice lager or dark beer made from four types of malt with a caramel aroma.
“People of the younger generation like to experiment with different types of beer, it is also a bigger offer than in the past. For the older generation, it’s a little different. I think that they go more for Czech classics – draft beers and lagers, but they are certainly an exception, when they like to taste a special one. “
According to Klouček, Holešovice also participates in the development of Czech beer culture. “Today we can taste different types of beer in more places than in the past.”
