Having read the reviews below I think I must have been to a different place. Only 2 beers on but I really enjoyed the dunkel. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was standard German fare. Location probably deserves a better brewpub but hey the whole area is a tourist trap.
My second visit to this brewpub, thought Iíd better review it:
We sat on uncomfy stools in the center part of this modern, slick, well run place. Outside it was wet and cold, so the mass of tables and chairs outside stood empty, inside it was rammed.
As we attacked our Pitcher of Hell and the two fresh, hot pretzel we looked around at the brown tiled flooring noting the green shirted staff scutlling about feeding the masses. Neat booths are in most areas of the inside, we however were perched in the main bar area, lots to see here, you can watch the beers being poured for a start.
The beer was fine, as were the pretzal, nice place.
Bottom line, the beers here arenít good. This place makes two beers is each is quite dire. The food is decent. The place itself is fairly charming and pleasant. The server I had was quite friendly and efficient. Prices are average. Only worth visiting for the sake of visiting.
Very nice brewpub on small square righ next to the canal. Due to bad weather we had to sit inside (pitty). Inside it looks more like English brewpub than typical German brauhaus. Unfortunately, only two not so good beers.
Clearly a big and tourist oriented opration, but reasonably cosy with lots of small rooms. On a sunny day the Biergarten on the Spree must be awesome. A shame that the beer are both terrible diacetyl bombs. Order two small ones for the tick and get out ASAP.
Pretty good location in Berlin, but not worth a detour. Decent location in a nice neighbourhood. Neither the dunkel or the helles was anything to write home about, but itís still not the worst place in Berlin for a beer...
