This was my favorite beer bar in Berlin for three years (87-90), I revisited in 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2012 (Jan). The British sector had some good watering holes and this one is still going strong.
It is a great place to have a draught beer, 15 different (Andechs Doppelbock dunkel, Duckstein, Klostriker Schwartzbier, 6 German Pilsners, a Kolsch, Weihenstephen Hefewiessbier and some non-German beers also.) There is always a draught beer of the month at a cheap price, my last visit it was Warsteiner Pils.
The bottled selection covers the world, mostly well known brews, but still very impressive, especially in Berlin, where beer choice is not a big thing yet.
The staff are all pretty young ladies, with one young lad pouring the beers for them all, he works bloody hard, the girls just look good, I hope they share their tips with him.
Very German in decor, all wood and heavy tables. The conservatory doubles the size of the place, outside drinking is also available.
The food is big, bold and good. They have specials on various nights and huge buffet breakfasts that go on until 12.00 (as well as other breakfast options), on Sundays and holidays it extends into a buffet brunch until 15.00. We shared a cheese platter on my last visit and the four of us couldn’t finish it.
This is a lot better than the new place they have set up in Potsdammer Platz, this is the original and is well worth seaching out.

Restaurant bar in the West end of Berlin. Massive beer selection over 100 bottle and draught. Friendly service. Going back to try the food tomorrow. Expensive but the best place in Berlin so far. Updated rating. Went back for a meal - good quality food and fast service. Food better value than beer. Definitely the place to go in Berlin.

Great and nice, service is typical Berlin, just ok. Selection is nice but only bottled and no evoluating. Food is big and german, but well done and simple. Value ist good if you don t drink too much beer.

Located in Charlottenburg, near Kurfurstendamm. Nice selection of special beers from all around the world. When I was here, it was early in the afternoon, so it wasn’t very crowdy. So, the service then was quite ok, but the ambiance not too good. Don’t know if it’s getting more crowdy on certain evenings.

Smack bang in the middle of one of Charlottenburg’s (spelling) eating strips. Nicely fitted out with plenty of wood panelling and a decent amount of seating. Middle aged crowd midweek. 16 beers on tap although nothing hugely adventurous. 300ml glass should cost around e2.70. What is far more impressive is to 100 strong bottle list. Quite global in its coverage and should please most beer geeks although it should be noted that there’s a fair chunk of macro rubbish (but of course they appealing to the general market – fair enough). Most bottles priced at e4.0. Clearly a standout in the Berlin scene based on my brief 3 day visit.

Have visited this Charlottenburg bar on a couple of occasions, most recently Oct ’10.
Yes - it’s a bit gimmicky and some of the ’100’ beers (in reality it’s not likely to ever be 100 as my friends and I have requested a couple that weren’t in stock!) are beers you certainly wouldn’t bother with on a trip to Deutschland (ie Guinness!)
There are however a few interesting German beers that you may not find in other bars in Berlin.
Two of the times I’ve visited we’ve sat outside in the beer garden and people watched, it’s a fairly lazy/quiet back street to be honest!
Service has always been adequate.
Charlottenburg is a 10/15 minute train journey from Berlin Hbf, and the venue is 7 or 8 minutes walk from Charlottenburg station
Not really worth going out of the way for, but if you’re in the area for whatever reason , pop by!

Visited their 2nd location, Mommseneck-Am Potsdamer Platz. Was able to add Namibia, Portugal and Switzerland to my list. And tried the Schneider Aventinus (superb) as well as the Berliner Kindl (awful). Service correct but although I sat by the bar was unable to pull the barkeep into conversation. Had 7 beers and hearty meal for under 35 euro. Crowd very middle of the road.

Not the best, but not bad at all. Slow service and expensive dishes. Big variety of botlled beers with good prices. Maybe i ll give it a second chance next time that i ll be in Berlin.

Dinner with work on a travel to Berlin. Nice rustique ambience but with really loud tv-sets (visit was during soccer world championship). Staff was decent, beer list was fairly long (100 bieren) and was mostly german lager with some belgians and others in there.
