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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Awesome cafe in a great part of Berlin, beer list is great, long enough to keep you there all night. Service is excellent, food is a mixture of a few european influences and is done very well. Great music, great crowd... Very Berlin in character. I Could think of no better place to drink Berliner Weiss and all the Ayinger stuff until dawn. A must visit. Oh and the prices are pretty good compared to the other beer bars/brewpubs in town.

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’!

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.

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.
