Nice beer bar on one of the more vibrant (or sleazy if you want that) night life streets in Berlin. Quite crowded on weekend nights, mainly inhabited by beer geeks and students. Friendly and efficient service. Although they only have one draught beer (Heineken), this is probably the bar in Berlin with the largest selection of bottled beers, mainly from Germany. No rare stuff, but still a good selection. Nice place with a decent amount of character ... and beer.

Located in a great street in Berlin, close to lot of other bars, restaurants and a big squatted building with lots of art, this street is the place to be for a good meal and drink.
The bar itself was so full that we were lucky to find two chairs add them together at the bar and wait a while for a beer.
The beers are ok, though there were few to almost no beers that were really new to me. No rarities. Prices are ok and staff is nice.
Had a nice evening here and met some funny people.

Located in a very... colourful secion of the town, at least at night. Completely full on a Saturday night. Good service considering the crowd, heck, we got both the beers and the check sooner than we should’ve. The beer list is enormous and some rare stuff on there. We pretty much ordered at random and got quite solid beers. A very good stop while in Berlin.

Visited in September 2014. A large place with a descent selection of beers, both very common omes but also some not that common, at least for a guy coming from Sweden. It was great to sit outside and drink a beer or two. The service was fast and friendly.

Fairly sparse decoration, a little lacking in atmosphere. Decent traditional German beer menu with some other international imports, but pretty much usual stuff. Prices seem fairly cheap. Stayed close by so worth popping into but wouldn’t go out of my way as a craft beer destination.

Very well located in the bar / restaurant strip smack band in the lively streets around the Oranienburger S-bahn station in Mitte. Plenty of tables inside as well as ample benches and tables on the street. Unspectacular bar food but will suffice for most needs (e6.0 – e9.0). Beer list (~115 beers) is nicely done and sorted by style. Macros / global brands / pilsners in 500ml should range around e2.80. High end Germans and Belgians will be closer to e3.50 per bottle. Good service and no problems with English. List standouts included: Andescher Doppelbock, Schlenkerla Rauch-Weizen) e3.20, St Bernardous 8 e3.30. Easily rivals Haus die 100 Bier for range albeit in a more relaxed and casual setting (and probably a better location). Highly recommended.

From the looks of their website and the overall design of their menus, etc. you would think that it would be a little more modern and a little less divey of a place. Not that I mind, really, I do like dives, it was just surprising. Short tap list and pretty large bottle list, especially for German standards. Unfortunately I didn’t do enough homework on German lagers and was basically guessing when it came to what to order. Oh well, I got some decent beer anyway. Service was pretty good at the bar. I think if we were at a table it would have taken longer. Pretty good bar, but that section of the city gets a little dicey at night with some less savory characters and a fair amount of (legal) prostitutes.

Stocks quite a few bottles. Selection seems quite random tough. Pricey by Berlin standards.

Ok, I update my review after some years with a better knownledge of what "beer" is (or should be). They got a large offer on their menu, but apart from the belgian ales and some nice german brew (Schlenkerla and Früh Kölsch) it’s just cheesy, commercial brews. The staff is kind, the food is cheap and ok, so I will always go there when in Mitte, but it’s far to be the best place in Berlin as it was some year ago

Stopped here for a few drinks based on the advice of a [non-ratebeer] friend. Decent place with an extensive bottle list. But, like most places in Berlin - seemingly - doesn’t go out of its way to impress. Had some berliner-weisse and got a few other ’macro’ ticks out of the way as well. Very good service, but maybe we were just there on a day where there wasn’t much to write home about.
