Whole package--good atmosphere (more restaurant/cafe than bar but nice place for conversation), good music, good service, good food (had blue cheese walnut & spinach flammkuchen) and very good beer, probably the most promising of all the Berlin brewpubs beer-wise with the possible exception of Brew Baker.

Nice new location, but the beer didn’t seem up to snuff. It seems like they need some time to get things in order, but there’s definite potential here.

4 beers that are all in good condition. Well brewed and fresh. Friendly and down to earth service. Reasonable prices. Will visit again.

Friendly service, good food, the beer is among the best of the Berlin brewpubs. Not a wide range, but combine it with Hops and Barley. Easy to find. Recommended.

Visited in September 2009. Had only just opened at the time of my visit. Airy, street corner bar. The Pils and Dunkles beers were enjoyable and service was friendly and able to accommodate my poor German. On the other side of Frankfurter Allee from Hops & Barley, but walking from one to the other was not a problem. Didn’t try the food, but the Alsatian Flammkuchen looked appetising. Worth a visit.

Very bright and open cafe, good Flammkuchen though I tend to like them a bit thicker. Sweet service, and though Hertha was playing today (and losing, but is there really a difference?), the door to the smoky back room with the loud television managed to shield me from most of the mourning. Place is easy to find and I always seem to find some colorful characters in this area. Beers were a little hit or miss, the super fresh seasonal was excellent but the dailies might have been from the bottom of the barrel. Worth throwing into a crawl with Hirsch and Hops & Barley. And Gute Mucke!

Visited for lunch on a Saturday just after opening, and was the only one there. But given the area, you can imagine some loud and fun nights most days of the week. Four beers on tap this day and pretty good beers too. The cassoulet I had was quite Germanized, but no need to complain about a simple fried duck leg served with bacon and sausage as a beeer companion. And the fingerling-type roast potatoes showed a bit of ambition too.

Visited on a Tuesday evening. Pretty crowded due to a football mach and a rather large group. The latter made the wait for my food (flammkuchen ) pretty long as I guess they had ordered just before I got there. The atmosphere and staff were friendly and the beer was quite decent. Certainly a place worth visiting. Both S-bahn and U-bahn is just a short walk a way, and my favorite brewpub in Friedrichshain (Hops & Barley) is not far away either. I’ll be back!

A new brewpub in Friedrichshain, easily reachable by exiting the U-Bahn at the Frankfurter Allee station, going east a little and then up north, north-west on the Pettenkoferstraße until you reach it. For us it was a slightly longer walk from Hops & Barley. It shows that this is a new place, and the ambiance is a bit lacking, not as crowded as some on a Sunday night, but that was more than made up for by the really friendly and cheerful, communicative waitress. There are three regular beers, as usual, a Helles/Pils, a typical pale red Dunkel and a Wheat. We were also lucky enough to try their first ever seasonal, a Märzen that came on tup just 3-4 days earlier. All solid fare and well worth visiting while in the neighborhood. We didn’t have the food but the prices seemed quite fine. I liked it there.

Nice brewpub tucked away in a residential area in the eastern parts of Berlin. Not far from U- and S-bahn stations Frankfurter Allée. Rather far away from any tourist area, so it’s mainly inhabited by locals. As with downender I walked between this place and Hops & Barley, which works fine (but bring a map). They had three beers of their own on tap at my visit: Pilsener, Dunkles and Weizen. They were alright. Tried one of the different schnitzels, it was very nice. Service was friendly and efficient. Worth a visit.
