Generally there isn't much choice for beer in Portugal so I was really pleased to visit here. It is a little way outside of the centre of town but easy to walk to. The staff were friendly and helpful, I was really impressed when one of them showed me a 5L beer mug (apparently you can buy it as a... More

The speciality meal, steak, was quite good. While they say it is for 2, it's large enough for 3 when paired with their beer selection or appetizers. The flavours were great and it was pretty tender, given the cuts. Sides or potatoes and greens were great accompaniment. We also sampled the amber and dunkel (dark) beers. They were lighter than...

A wide room, comfortable and with modern decorations. They make at the place 4 types of beer, you can watch and the machines and processes, and also the food and the service are very good.

I love this place, especially for beer and snacks. The steak is also very nice, but usually I go for some snacks.

located on the hill across the river from the city centre (but close to some hotels) Praxis offered a great opportunity to relax on a terrace after a long and busy day with some highly flavoursome beers (a choice of five craft beers brewed on the premises), looking over to the city. Food is not bad either!

I'm not a lover of beer BUT the Praxis has a small but magnificent range. White beer, pisner, to the Dunkel. Combined with some of the best steaks around the area and you have informal dining that any other restaurants will find it hard to beat. Ask for the fish filleted and served on stir fried vegetables for something off... More

In a country where it is difficult to find anything other than Sagres or Super Bock, I was interested in visiting what appears to be the only craft beer bar in Coimbra. It's a long way from the main town, around 20 minutes walk south east and across the river, or by taxi around 10 minutes if the traffic is... More

Overall it was a good experience. The atmosphere is great for what it is, and the service was very nice and thoughtful. The beer, which is brewed in the house, is very tasty, having tried Weiss. The thing was that the food was accompanied with next to nothing. Only a few chips and no salad at all. Although I usually... More

Have a beer in Praxis quite often - the beer is excellent. Decided to lunch after being married in the morning. Starter of prawns - very nice but only had 2 when we were asked to eat the rest later as the steak was ready- went into shock, however took delivery of the steaks, although I suspected they were part...

We first oppened to public on April 24th of 2009, but the first brews started in 2001.Praxis´s came up with an idea of giving back to the city an old tradition of Brewing, taking advantage of the amazing properties of Coimbra´s Water.The Bremaster carefully selects all the ingredients (malts and Hops) in order to have a 100% Natural Brewing Process with a lot of Time to Make it. If you curious about it, you can visualize here all the Stages of the Brewing process.We have always available 4 of our beers:Weiss, Pilsener, Ambar and Dunkel.Praxis it´s also a Restaurant with great Steaks, Fish and Seafood
