Oh this is a cool place! Friedrichshain. We walked in, and they were showing a game first and then a German soap opera that was really riveting to the crowd, it was 9PM and all the patrons were watching a soap. Great vibe, hipsters but not snobs, if you know what I mean Friendly ppl, great boho/artsy vibe overall. And the beers are decent too!

If you are visiting the East Side Gallery, this is the same distance from the train station, but on the other side. Grungy neighborhood, very lively, youthful. This tiny brewpub fits right in with its huge old dog standing guard (with its tired eyes, anyway). Their unfiltered Pils was very good, as was their Weizen. Both had an interesting house character as well. Punk music, limping dog and tattoos on every second patron. Not your common German brewpub, to say the least.

Visited H&B early on a Monday night October ’10, so fairly quiet, but still a few people in (and the house dog who was a lovely old fella!).
All house beers were ’decent’ enough and we sampled Dunkels and Pils (and ...) the Cider.
not a cider person but the manager insisted we sampled it (as it was made from English apples) and it was really good, so much so we purchased a 2 litre take out to drink on the way to the airport :P
The food we had was decent rustic cheeses, meat and bread and great vfm !
They also have accomodation upstairs which seems really reasonable price wise (self catering).

Great place. Jammed on a Friday night, and not surprisingly. Four house beers (three regular, one seasonal), which were all excellent. Friendly bartender. Good prices. Great looking place; the draft system, in particular, is quite attractive. I could picture this place fitting quite well in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) or something; it’s got that kind of feel to it. A must visit when in Berlin.

Located not too far from Warschauer strasse S-Bahn station. A small place with a very small modern brewery in the pub, my guess is a 1 hectoliter brewery. The walls of the pub are beutifully decorated with tiles. The have 3 of their own beers as well as a home made cider and some bottled beers, where we stumbled over 2 non-alcoholic beers we had not tried before. The service was very friendly. The serve some open faced rye bread sandwiches baked with the mash, and you are welcome to order a pizza next door, and then the pizza man comes in and serves you in the brewpub.

Visited several times, first time when I took part in Berlin Marathon.
Smaller, very cosy pub with friendly staff and some great beers from their own brewing plant, which is placed in the pub. They do both regulars and season beers, most times in a good condition. At times their big, old dog goes around saying hello to people, and take a nap at your feet. They do snack food, cosy place I would love to visit again...

Hard to find, but worth the effort. Great spot to watch soccer and have a couple craft beers. Not many seats, though.

The best brewpub in Berlin. 4 beers that were all great. Amazing Pils, Dunkel and Tettnanger Hell. Average Weizen and 1 poor cider. Reasonable prices and great atmosphere. Top of the pops in Berlin.

Visited in March 2009 with Gazza and Sue. Although they have the standards Pils, Dunkel and Weizen (all good) here, there is also an ever-changing special. And they are not blinkered by German practice, offering, of all things, a Brown Ale when we were there. And there’s a cider too. A cracking little place situated in the lively nightlife area of Friedrichshain in former East Berlin. The front bar has some attractive tiling (it used to be a butchers shop) and there’s a back room too but that turned into a smoking room later on. Certainly not a smart place but there was a good vibe here. The fact that the owner/brewer was both enthusiastic and hospitable certainly helped to enhance the experience. He made sure that we were supplied with a sample from the last remaining couple of litres of the Brown Ale and provided us with a tasting of the new special, Bernstein, as soon as it went on. Unusually for Germany he did not seem bewildered by the presence of beer enthusiasts from overseas seeking out new beers and was keen to expound his plans for even more exotic specials (anyone for a German IPA?). It was truly difficult to get away, and not in a bad way. No food to speak of but there’s plenty in the vicinity. An essential stop in Berlin.

Small coasy and mostly youth place not far from the U-Bahn. Three house beers plus one seasonal (Brown Ale) and one cider at the time. Not so loud music, reasonable prices. Recommended.
