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 latest April 2016 with my parents. Spacy, L-shaped bar, few seatings outside. Decent selection of beers on tap and bottles. Served in good condition and with a smile from the friendly staff. Easy to find, worth a visit.
Visited in 2012. They had decent selection of bottles, however nothing too interesting. Food was cheap and good. Not a bad choice if you’re nearby.

Fairly sparse decoration, a little lacking in atmosphere. Decent traditional German beer menu with some other international imports, but pretty much usual stuff. Prices seem fairly cheap. Stayed close by so worth popping into but wouldn’t go out of my way as a craft beer destination.
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.
Lively restaurant near the center of Berlin. Tables were all occupied on a Friday evening but there’s additional seating at the bar. No drafts but about 100 bottles though all were very common beers that you could find in any bottle shop with an international selection. Prices for German beers was good; imports were understandably a bit higher. I had some sausage and sauerkraut which were ok but nothing special. Overall, a pretty forgettable place.
