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.

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 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.

Visited in 2012. They had decent selection of bottles, however nothing too interesting. Food was cheap and good. Not a bad choice if you’re nearby.

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
