A popular place for very young people to go out. Therefore, if you’re there just for beers, afternoons are recommended. Wide selection of German beers, mostly macros, but some seem to be hard to find otherwise. Decent prices. Efficient service. Cool environment, lot of antique breweriana.
Great pub in Mitte Berlin. Lots of bottles, with specials,, like for this season christmas beers from a.o. Belguim. One tap (heineken), strange enough. I think about 200 different beers. Can be very busy, there’s a guard/porter letting you in. Departed more or less in two parts, where at the left a lot of people enjoyed the food. we didn’t though becauwe of other plans. Good atmosphere.
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.
Decent beer pub with good selection on bottles. Food is quite general but their goulash works every time for little money. As already mentioned below quite touristy, but drop in few hours before 19 o’clock and you’ll have all the space for your beer tasting. The prices are not expensive, but very affordable for locals like me. Service can be pain in the ass in the evenings, when it gets busy.

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.
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.
Ok, I update my review after some years with a better knownledge of what "beer" is (or should be). They got a large offer on their menu, but apart from the belgian ales and some nice german brew (Schlenkerla and Früh Kölsch) it’s just cheesy, commercial brews. The staff is kind, the food is cheap and ok, so I will always go there when in Mitte, but it’s far to be the best place in Berlin as it was some year ago
Nice place to go for a drink. Nice, wide selection of most German macro’s but why only one draft? Inside looks nice, decorated in an older setting with old brewstuff hanging around. Too bad that we couldn’t stay that long
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.
Stopped here for a few drinks based on the advice of a [non-ratebeer] friend. Decent place with an extensive bottle list. But, like most places in Berlin - seemingly - doesn’t go out of its way to impress. Had some berliner-weisse and got a few other ’macro’ ticks out of the way as well. Very good service, but maybe we were just there on a day where there wasn’t much to write home about.
