The New Town Brewery stands on the site of the house where as early as 1434, the maltster Vaněk Zpěvák enjoyed his “brewing privilege”. Today's Old Bohemian restaurant brewery was founded in 1993, and builds on this long forgotten tradition. The merging of the microbrewery and restaurant into one has created an extensive complex of effectively connected spaces above and below ground.

You may linger in Gothic halls or in village pub interiors from the 20s and 30s of the 19th century. The walls are decorated with beer themed paintings and all pervasive mock hops. The restaurant specializes in typical Czech cuisine – from “česnečka” (garlic soup) and “svíčková” (roast beef sirloin in cream sauce) to leg-of-duck confit and roast suckling pig.
They brew their own beer called Novoměstský ležák 11° (New Town lager); unfiltered beer with yeast, produced exclusively from Czech ingredients - using Czech malt and Saaz hops. Specialities include beer tasting consisting of four samples (caramel, coffee, ginger and banana beer), beer sparkling wine or beer liquor distilled directly from the Newtown beer. You may order a so-called “žirafa” (giraffe) or a table keg – a two-litre beer column or a ten-litre beer keg, and draw your beer from your own tap directly at your table. The restaurant provides tours of the brewery with expert commentary.
Beers on offer: Novoměstský ležák 11° (lager) – light, dark, half-and-half, occasional specials
