A German version of Delirium ... crowded and touristy with plenty of German beers, many Belgians and other world beers along with spirits, etc. At least they have a decent selection of various German styles while not breaking grounds on rare beers. Draft selection is limited to one crappy pilsner.
Atmosphere .. touristy bar, not really a reflection of a Berliner bar.
As with many things in Germany simple things get overly complicated as placing a simple order at the bar was.
Easy to find or reach with U-Bahn and bus.
When we visited this place was quite on a Saturday afternoon. It took awhile to be served, but from putting the order until beer was served was fast. The place is somewhat run down. The beer list has approximately 100 bottles on it, but I could only get 1 new and Papsoe got 3. The prices are decent.
An arty, old-school beer cafe with good local dishes (potato-bacon soup, bread with lard, etc.) and useful daylight hours (easy to reach from nearby museums, etc.). Not much "craft" beer but the 100 bottles include several Belgian ales like St. Bernardus, Schlenkerla, and a few bock beers, etc. Nice place in a part of town that lacks interesting pubs.
Visited in September 2014. A large place with a descent selection of beers, both very common omes but also some not that common, at least for a guy coming from Sweden. It was great to sit outside and drink a beer or two. The service was fast and friendly.
Located in a very... colourful secion of the town, at least at night. Completely full on a Saturday night. Good service considering the crowd, heck, we got both the beers and the check sooner than we should’ve. The beer list is enormous and some rare stuff on there. We pretty much ordered at random and got quite solid beers. A very good stop while in Berlin.
Nice beer bar on one of the more vibrant (or sleazy if you want that) night life streets in Berlin. Quite crowded on weekend nights, mainly inhabited by beer geeks and students. Friendly and efficient service. Although they only have one draught beer (Heineken), this is probably the bar in Berlin with the largest selection of bottled beers, mainly from Germany. No rare stuff, but still a good selection. Nice place with a decent amount of character ... and beer.

Located in a great street in Berlin, close to lot of other bars, restaurants and a big squatted building with lots of art, this street is the place to be for a good meal and drink.
The bar itself was so full that we were lucky to find two chairs add them together at the bar and wait a while for a beer.
The beers are ok, though there were few to almost no beers that were really new to me. No rarities. Prices are ok and staff is nice.
Had a nice evening here and met some funny people.

Modern innards, sometimes live music, but more of a chatter’s paradise, though one must occasionally rise above the din. They also have internet for public use. Probably first beer bar I found in Germany with a large selection (though probably not in my top ten overall); has a lot of classics on the menu, and 40+ whiskeys, too. Might have to wade through the prostitutes if you leave later in the evening, but that’s usually a good time, anyway.
Right across the street from an S-Bahn stop, Oranienburger Str. , with a view of the towering synagogue.
Very well located in the bar / restaurant strip smack band in the lively streets around the Oranienburger S-bahn station in Mitte. Plenty of tables inside as well as ample benches and tables on the street. Unspectacular bar food but will suffice for most needs (e6.0 – e9.0). Beer list (~115 beers) is nicely done and sorted by style. Macros / global brands / pilsners in 500ml should range around e2.80. High end Germans and Belgians will be closer to e3.50 per bottle. Good service and no problems with English. List standouts included: Andescher Doppelbock, Schlenkerla Rauch-Weizen) e3.20, St Bernardous 8 e3.30. Easily rivals Haus die 100 Bier for range albeit in a more relaxed and casual setting (and probably a better location). Highly recommended.
