First founded in 1140, the Strahov Monastery is known to have been a functioning brewery during the 1400s until 1907. In 1907 it was closed and later converted to an apartment complex. However, the brewery was brought back in 2001 as part of a renovation of the monastery allowing visitors to taste its iconic brew, the St.Norbert named after the patron saint of the monastery.
The beer can be enjoyed in its three great halls, and in the garden during the summer, which all preserve a unique historic atmosphere.
