Only two beers, as usual, plus a Weihenstephaner Weizen... But the owner was kind and showed me the equipment, even if we had some communication problem ;-) The place looks "new" but wants to give the impression of being old.
No longer actually called ’Luisen-Bräu’ but has changed into a new Lemke. Now called ’Brauhaus Lemke am Schloss’. Now Visited on June 6, 2008. Very similar to Lemke’s other location. Tried the Brauhaus Alster, their pils mixed with sprite soda. Also tried the green Berliner Wisse Waldmeister here. OK serice, did not eat. Close to a few fairly big roads with distrubing traffic. Either go to this or the other Lemke, both is not necessary.
Modern building but nicely done out in old woody style. Tiled floors, wooden panelling etc. All go to make for quite cosy atmosphere. Although that wasn’t enhanced by the fact that I had the place virtually to myself on a quiet midweek lunchtime. That and the "sounds of the 80s" CD that was playing constantly, seemingly on a loop. Beers are the same as at the other Lemkes now. Marzen was the seasonal when I visited. The brewing kit is still in place but what is brewed where I don’t know. Handy for Charlottenburg Schloss.
Good place for a break after visiting the Charlottenburg castle across the road. A tasting tray with four different beer (1dl each) is a good place to start. A place to visit if you are in the area, if not the other Lemke at Hackescher Markt is in a more convenient location.
Newly renovated - probably when it was taken over by Lemke, I believe in 2008. But the style is kept traditionally with hig wood panelling and a huge wooden bar at the entrance with some seating, but off to the sides are lots of tables, kept in wood as well as the benches. 3 regular beers and a seasonal of own make. A bit pricier than the rest of Berlin, but cheap compared to Denmark. The food is solid German kitchen with big serving sizes. The service is nice.
Across the street from the palace, with sidewalk terrace seating in agreeable weather. Shiny coppery modern 90s-era brewpubbing happening inside. Decent lagers underrated by people who want something "different," which these days is provided in the form of IPAs and strong stouts and the like. I think the Bohemian Pils is money; if not Bohemian at least it’s spicy and bitter. There is a hoppy wheat beer that never seems to be in stock. Food is decent if unremarkable. Good service. I would take visitors here.

Nice brewpub close to the beautiful Charlottenburg castle. One of two Lemke brewpubs, serving four of their own beers (some of them may very well have been brewed at the other brewpub close to Hackescher Markt). Rustic wooden interior with the brewery equipment on display. Friendly and efficient service. Worth a visit if you are in the area, but you may well find the same beers at Hackescher Markt.
