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.

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.

Decent beer pub with good selection on bottles. Food is quite general but their goulash works every time for little money. As already mentioned below quite touristy, but drop in few hours before 19 o’clock and you’ll have all the space for your beer tasting. The prices are not expensive, but very affordable for locals like me. Service can be pain in the ass in the evenings, when it gets busy.

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 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).

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

Nice place to go for a drink. Nice, wide selection of most German macro’s but why only one draft? Inside looks nice, decorated in an older setting with old brewstuff hanging around. Too bad that we couldn’t stay that long

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.

To repeat previous reviews: great location, you can’t miss it. As its on Oranienburger Str you sit outside on the benches watching Berlin go by. Very pleasent. Service was friendly and prompt, the beers we had their were served in the correct glassware for the style. Has a really attractive laidback vibe to it, in keeping with the area. The beer menu was retricted to bottles (only Heineken on tap), which knocks down a few points in my opinion. The strongest point here is the German bottle selection. There are about a dozen choices in the Hefe weizen Hell/Kristall/dunkels and about 7 - 8 in most other catogries. The menu has a good ’specialties’ section where I found Engel’s Keller bier in both Hell and Dunkel varities amoungst other unusual brews. Amoungst the european beers it has about half a dozen Austrian beers as well as Belgians etc. As with most places in Berlin compared to UK prices it wasn’t expensive - about 3 euro a bottle, less that you’d pay in an uk supermarket. A great place to go to because it’ll keep both the beer geeks and the regular tourists in your party happy! Oh, and on the hookers front - there are ALOT less ladies of the night on Or. Str. than when I was here in 2000. Back the we nicknamed it ’Hooky Street’!

Has the look of a student bar only it is clean and not very cheap. Located in the tourist area of east Berlin. nice selection of bottled beer, nothing unusual except that apart from the Momsen Eck there is no comparable choice. Friendly and young place, worth checking out.
