Description: The famous Stopek's Beer House has always been one of the pillars of Czech social and cultural life in Brno. There has been a pub here since the second half of the 19th century. It became famous with the arrival of the new owner, the genius Jaroslav Stopka, who took over the original Jonak's Beer House in 1910. Period advertisements always declared that the best Pilsner beer could be had at Stopka's. The pub retained its character and atmosphere even after its extensive modernisation. The author of the façade of the beer house is Czech painter and graphic artist Láďa Novák (1865 - 1944), a well-know Prague bohemian and also the author of the decorations on the U Fleků Pub in Prague, was also repaired and renovated. Pilsner Urquell and dark Velkopopovický Kozel, Fénix and Birell Light are all on tap. The head chef at Stopek's Beer House, Matěj Kovacs, recommends the excellent rosemary flavoured roasted lamb hock.

Very good food and affordable, but make sure you have a reservation, we didn't but we luckily had a table free when we got there a few minutes later and there would have been nothing

“Good for beer and Czech food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

Taste of beer is great and have gone there two times in one year. Great envirnment to spend evening with friends. Food is good taste and authentic local preperation taste. Must try Tartar. Location is easy to find but Layout is confusing. Service is slow. Did not like the spoups and not much variety either. Reccomend only for drinks and not dinner.
