Located in the old town of Spandau, the brewpub draws corowds of hungry and thirsty middle aged guests who want to enjoy a pint of the local brew (always two to choose from) and a portion of unpretentious but decent German food. Despite the considerable area - two storeys and several ’adjacent’ rooms - the staff are quick to serve and friendly. I had a really good Braumeisters Flammkuchen and small ampunts of the brewpub’s Helles and Rotbier. Decent, clean, cheap and nice. I will gladly come again.

Visited with the wife and two friends on a very cold Sunday early evening on 18th Jan 2014.
Nice looking place, used to be a military laundry according to the waiter. Neat, smart and spotless: very different to most of Berlin’s brew pubs being both bright and airy.
Waiter was fine, beer OK, but only three to choose from, two regulars and one seasonal: Potz-Blitz Bier on our visit.
I liked the set up though, the wife and friends not so much. Huge beer garden and semi-covered area unusable because it was so cold: visit in the summer if you can, be a whole lot better.

Visited several times, first time just before taking part in Berlin Maraton 2009 :-) Lovely, cosy brewpub a bit away from the citycenter, but for sure worth going for. Outside is a lovely beergarden, and inside traditionel german brauhaus deko, rather spacy eventhough it doesn´t seems so. The food is traditionel german brauhaus food, but I haven´t eaten there yet, mayby next time, for sure I would like a revisit. Friendly staff and the beers were nice.

The best place in Berlin with the best beers in town. Nice sorroungins (ok, I love Spandau, but I’m writing honestly), the food is normal german brauhaus food with some Berliner special (boulette). Let’s come to beers: simply amazing. I really enjoyed the Havelbräu, and their schwarz is one of the best I had so far in Germany. A must-visit if you’re in Berlin. Don’t be afraid of the distance from city center, with just 30 minute s-bahn ride you are there. And their beer worth the detour! The best beergarten I’ve been after Spezialkeller and Wilde Rose in BAmberg

I can only imagine sitting outside enjoying the view in the summer with a fresh pils. Looking forward to do that someday. 2 beers avaliable. Pils and Dunkel - both in good condition and a little above average for Belin. Friendly and efficient service. A fine place to visit if in Berlin.

Brewery restaurant in Spandau next to Alt-Spandau U-Station. Includes two major biergartens, one in the front and main one in the back. Beers available were Havelbräu Helles and Maibock. Both were fairly good beers, Helles especially was tasty in the Biergarten at a temperature of 30C degrees. Food options are also good. The classic Solianka soup was great, meaty and tasty and more than enough to accompany my beers. Service fairly quick and friendly. Visit during the late afternoon. Well worth the visit. Check out the Siphon 1l bottle with beer of your wish to buy out with yo. Mine was Helles.

To find Spandau, take the S9 from Berlin city centre (or the U7 to Altstadt Spandau, which is closer). Walk up past the red town hall and the modern church of St Nikolai, and hopefully the tall redbrick chimney of the brewery should guide you in, over the dual carriageway. For the first-timer like myself, the Brauhaus ticks every box – large outdoor beer garden, busy but well-organised bar, huge plates of sausage. The brewing equipment seems to be woven into the building, with two giant coppers behind the bar. A wrong-turn to the toilet led to a foaming bath of beer in the conditioning room, frothing away gently.
Don’t expect Flanders-esque menus at the Brauhaus - they only make two beers at any given time. No agonising choices to be made here. Have one, then the other. Their regular is Spandauer Havelbräu Hell – an unfiltered lager. Each month, a special is also produced – which for my April visit was Spandauer Schwartzbier. There may well be nicer beer gardens in Berlin – and probably better brewers in and around the city, too. Sadly we never made it to Eschenbrau or Sudstern (we did go to Prater). Spandau may be a trip out of the centre, but it’s absolutely worth it.

Surprisingly large place, easy to find with different theaters of action, would be pleasant to sit outside but I’m early for that. LOUD and happy Stammkunden, and a pleasant if slightly snarky vibe. Service was fine and the beers have some real potential (the seasonal Schwarzbier easily validated the trip.). A bit out of the way, but Spandau does have a nice little dense Altstadt to blow an hour or two, and I think I’ll enjoy a summer visit much more.

Large building with brewery, restaurant/pub and hotel. Two or three beers available, the specials/seasonals can be just that: special. Good food.
