Easy place to meet up with friends, but there are many better places to drink in Berlin :)

A very nice bar that focuses almost exclusively on bottled beers. The bottle list is pretty large. Lots of common stuff but a few special ones to look out for (e.g. the Andechser Dopplebock Dunkel). Good value. Pretty mellow place when we visited on a Sunday afternoon, but I’d imagine the place gets jammed with youngsters. Lots of tables, original art on the walls. We have a nice server. We didn’t eat anything but the food looked decent. Laid-back music, like jazzy lounge stuff. Smooth. Definitely worth visiting. Quite coincidentally the hotel I was staying at (the Meininger Mitte) was directly next door, so that was pretty convenient.

When we visited this place was quite on a Saturday afternoon. It took awhile to be served, but from putting the order until beer was served was fast. The place is somewhat run down. The beer list has approximately 100 bottles on it, but I could only get 1 new and Papsoe got 3. The prices are decent.

Slightly scruffy, boho cafe feel (which is fine by me) in a lively, late-night area. Free Wi-Fi, which isn’t common in Berlin (a real blessing as internet access in our hotel was outrageously expensive). Extensive beer list with a fair few German rarities (unlike Haus der 100 Bieres) that kept me busy for a leisurely afternoon while surfing the net, catching up on email etc. I believe it is open quite late at night and seems to have some sort of music venue attached but, as I only visited during the day and it was on the other side of town from where we were staying, I didn’t put that to the test.

Interesting enough place, very wide ranging bottled selection (but why only draft Heineken?). Visited on a Sunday afternoon when it was very quiet, so can’t comment on busy periods.

Aachh, ja, Helga! Oranienburger strasse! Restaurants, trashy bars, sinful women in extremly short golden hotpants and a great place for beer geeks! ( And a big synagogue..) My fellow beer friend and I shared some good beers here a late Wednesday evening. The highlights were Rothaus Pils, Augustiner Lagerbier Hell, Engel Hefeweizen Hell / Dunkel and Tegernseer Spezial.

The ’happening street’ in Berlin currently, the whole area is a mass of bars, clubs and eating places. We missed this bar initially, because of scaffolding that was covering the front, plus the street is numbered strangely. We were on the wrong side of the road, no problems once we realised.
Don’t know what it’ll look like outside, but inside it is very basic, with wooden floors and loads of seating/tables. Some interesting paintings, lite very well, to highlight each ones striking points (like a spot light onto a nightscenes moon). We all liked the vibe of the place (two 50+ year olds and two 29 year olds). Lots of American English being spoken around us, as well as German.
The bottled beer selection is very interesting, the only tap being Heineken of all things. I didn’t really look past the German beers, but there were plenty of others and as has been mentioned most appeared to be Belgian.
Service was fine on both occasions my little party of four drank here in mid April 2011. Bottles brought to the table, pour your own. Update from Jan 2012, still busy and fun to use, found some interesting beers to drink (check out the bar top for ones not on the beer menu!).

A German version of Delirium ... crowded and touristy with plenty of German beers, many Belgians and other world beers along with spirits, etc. At least they have a decent selection of various German styles while not breaking grounds on rare beers. Draft selection is limited to one crappy pilsner.
Atmosphere .. touristy bar, not really a reflection of a Berliner bar.
As with many things in Germany simple things get overly complicated as placing a simple order at the bar was.
Easy to find or reach with U-Bahn and bus.

Nice pub in a nice area. Good selection of both beer and whisky. They seem to have a vast selection of glasses too, because we always get the beer in the right glass (from the right brewery).

Modern innards, sometimes live music, but more of a chatter’s paradise, though one must occasionally rise above the din. They also have internet for public use. Probably first beer bar I found in Germany with a large selection (though probably not in my top ten overall); has a lot of classics on the menu, and 40+ whiskeys, too. Might have to wade through the prostitutes if you leave later in the evening, but that’s usually a good time, anyway.
Right across the street from an S-Bahn stop, Oranienburger Str. , with a view of the towering synagogue.
