Street numbers were confusing, but we soldiered on and eventually came to the right railway arch. Open interior. Friendly staff, though not super-sharp when it came to working out that we were trying to get every beer. Sampler plate of 6 of the beers is available, the other four beers on tap can be picked off as small portions. Nice range of beers - ales and lagers. Quality fairly solid, although there was a house taint. Food was good value for money too, the hock was delicious, and huge. Definitely worth coming here.
This was our fourth visit to this brew-pub. We have always felt intimidated here. The staff jump on you as soon as you enter and try to get you to eat when all you want is a drink. The beer choice was exactly the same as when we visited 9 months ago, even the guests. No wonder it was empty.
Wasn’t hard to find once we figured out where to go. Under the S-bahn. Quite impressive. Only once I felt slight tremble and noise, but all in all very quiet. They do selection of beers so that’s nice. Got hungry as well so pork knee was ordered. Fckin HUGE for 13 euros! Shared by 3 people and we were full. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will come back when in area.
Great biergarten and brewpub at Hackesher Markt. They seem to have outgrown the brewpub for the actual brewing though and have moved the brewery but kept the pub. Great food, great service and 9 beers on tap. However, the IIPA and Imp Stout ran out before I could taste them.
Nice and very large brewpub, kind of centrally located not too far from Alexanderplatz. Pretty big selection of their own beers (and I have to say these were tasty!), didn’t try any food. Staff was helpful but not overly chatty.
Went there in middle of June during the Easter Island and Pacific Conference (EIPC 2015). The Hackescher Markt was pretty busy that night, especially Lemke Brauhaus. The service was obviously affected by it and the waiter a little bit impacient. Food was good, typical Berliner Menu. Tried the Wiener Schnitzel and tasted fine. Good ambiance, slightly noisy for my taste. The beer was good. Fine sessionable Hefes and Pilsners, but also surprising non-German styles. Me and a friend ordered the whole Imperial Stout bottle (660 ml) and it was quite expensive (about $15 Euro if I remember well). The waiter stared at us with an "are you sure?" face. It was an intense and heavy malt bomb, but pretty unrefined. I had a good time overall, but the place can be improved in a number of ways. I will return for sure on the next trip to try more varieties.
