Probably no beers here that are unique to you or extra special. But as far as German beer goes, the beers here are as good as any other place. But you are not just here for the Beer. Aufsturz is on Oranienbergerstrasse which is a site to see if you are visiting Berlin. Donít waste your time and go to this bar during the day> Try to go on a Friday or Saturday and just enjoy the ambiance. Great place on a great street. Gorgeous working girls and drunk Brits just add to the overall character of one of the greatest streets in the world. One of the reviews says "this section of the city gets a little dicey at night." Ha! Yea, it does get a little scary if your Mom still needs to accompany you to the bathroom at Dennyís. But for the rest of us it is incredibly safe and totally fun.
Aachh, ja, Helga! Oranienburger strasse! Restaurants, trashy bars, sinful women in extremly short golden hotpants and a great place for beer geeks! ( And a big synagogue..) My fellow beer friend and I shared some good beers here a late Wednesday evening. The highlights were Rothaus Pils, Augustiner Lagerbier Hell, Engel Hefeweizen Hell / Dunkel and Tegernseer Spezial.

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.
From the looks of their website and the overall design of their menus, etc. you would think that it would be a little more modern and a little less divey of a place. Not that I mind, really, I do like dives, it was just surprising. Short tap list and pretty large bottle list, especially for German standards. Unfortunately I didnít do enough homework on German lagers and was basically guessing when it came to what to order. Oh well, I got some decent beer anyway. Service was pretty good at the bar. I think if we were at a table it would have taken longer. Pretty good bar, but that section of the city gets a little dicey at night with some less savory characters and a fair amount of (legal) prostitutes.
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.
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 shouldíve. 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.
Slightly scruffy, boho cafe feel (which is fine by me) in a lively, late-night area. Free Wi-Fi, which isnít common in Berlin (a real blessing as internet access in our hotel was outrageously expensive). Extensive beer list with a fair few German rarities (unlike Haus der 100 Bieres) that kept me busy for a leisurely afternoon while surfing the net, catching up on email etc. I believe it is open quite late at night and seems to have some sort of music venue attached but, as I only visited during the day and it was on the other side of town from where we were staying, I didnít put that to the test.
Well, sometime has passed, so time to update. Far from being one of the most interesting beer places in the city these day. A lot has changed around the city, but not much have changed here. Still most of the same beers as previous time Iíve visited. Mostly traditional German styles, nothing too interesting beerwise anymore, but still a perfectly good place to have a beer and some food. Fair amount of seating outside, and service is usually friendly. One of the few places in this street that has survived that long time. Worth dropping by if one happens to be in the area, but no need to go out of your way to visit.
Nice pub in a nice area. Good selection of both beer and whisky. They seem to have a vast selection of glasses too, because we always get the beer in the right glass (from the right brewery).
A nice bar with a great selection of beer in a party street of town. Quite ordinairy inside, the weather was nice so we sat outside and had some nice beers.

Awesome cafe in a great part of Berlin, beer list is great, long enough to keep you there all night. Service is excellent, food is a mixture of a few european influences and is done very well. Great music, great crowd... Very Berlin in character. I Could think of no better place to drink Berliner Weiss and all the Ayinger stuff until dawn. A must visit. Oh and the prices are pretty good compared to the other beer bars/brewpubs in town.
To repeat previous reviews: great location, you canít miss it. As its on Oranienburger Str you sit outside on the benches watching Berlin go by. Very pleasent. Service was friendly and prompt, the beers we had their were served in the correct glassware for the style. Has a really attractive laidback vibe to it, in keeping with the area. The beer menu was retricted to bottles (only Heineken on tap), which knocks down a few points in my opinion. The strongest point here is the German bottle selection. There are about a dozen choices in the Hefe weizen Hell/Kristall/dunkels and about 7 - 8 in most other catogries. The menu has a good íspecialtiesí section where I found Engelís Keller bier in both Hell and Dunkel varities amoungst other unusual brews. Amoungst the european beers it has about half a dozen Austrian beers as well as Belgians etc. As with most places in Berlin compared to UK prices it wasnít expensive - about 3 euro a bottle, less that youíd pay in an uk supermarket. A great place to go to because itíll keep both the beer geeks and the regular tourists in your party happy! Oh, and on the hookers front - there are ALOT less ladies of the night on Or. Str. than when I was here in 2000. Back the we nicknamed it íHooky Streetí!
