Stunning place. Extremely knowledgeable guy who runs this, I guess speaking German helps on getting to know the right stuff. A few locals showing in. Placed along Karl Marx Allee which is a really deserted place in the former East-Berlin. Anyhow. I received somewhat the best service ever and received background information about the beer scene in Berlin that was up to date. Selection holds a variety of rare German brews. Tell what beers you’ve had from the brewery and you’ll be presented by at least one new beer for each brewery you mention. Wide selection of beers from Haus of 131 Biere out of Hamburg.
This shop has a lot of different and interesting beers from Germany but also from all over the world. The owner is a beerenthusiast who likes to talk about beer and to present the Pilsener culture in Berlin. The most beers in the shop are more or less normal Style beers. It is no problem to drink some of the beers you buy insite the shop and to talk to the other customers and the owner.
Visited there on my Berlin trip. Very small shop with an old, friendly man behind the counter. He gave me some time to look around and then he decided to help me out. He showed me some stuff I’ve never heard about and I eventually walked out with around 15 bottles for 23 euros! I don’t know what everybody says about steep prices, they weren’t steep to me. Awesome shop, great selection and a lot of different, hard to get countries. Must visit when in Berlin.
Tiny beer shop packed with huge variety of beers. More than few people can hardly walk inside. You can drink only beers from there whole month, so to most travelers it’s just unfailing beer spring. Prices are a bit higher, but that’s comparable to most European beer shops. Helpful staff, which was trying to recommend some crappy, but admittedly weird stuff and helped us upon Berliner Weisse hunt. Highly recommended.
The owner was terribly crabby but very helpful. I produced a list of biers to which he proclaimed was mostly shit, but he provided me with many interesting German styles and I was grateful. Recommended.
Small beer shop with decent collection of beers from around the world. Most of the German beer are still quite common. The Belgian section consists of mainly typical Trappist and some other well known stuff. Also some beer from Canada and Africa. The service was rather weird although I spoke German . Also the prices are for local way overpriced. I got one overpriced Moosehead and got the f out as fast as I could. As said selection decent but too pricey by all norms, this goes for mainly international beers but also typical German beers.
Small shop filled to the brim with beer. It’s actually hard to move around the shop without constantly taking care not to bump into the beers. The clerk was friendly enough, but he had some beers which had labels in Cyrillic and he was unable to tell me which country they were from. I had hoped for Belarus like Ogivlado but ended up with two pale lagers from Russia instead. The selsction was good with lots of German beers and lots of exotic countries as well. The prices were very high for Germany. On some of the exotic beers prices were double of Ambrosetti. Go here only after you have visited Ambrosetti and you still have room for more beer.
Small beer shop with very nice selection of Germans plus some beers from hard to get countries (like Belarus for me). Bit higher prices than Ambrosetti or other getränke shops, but charging common Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn and similar foreign beers more than 5€ is totally insane.
Strange place with a strange man behind the counter. Excellent selection of beer and easy to find. It’s just a short walk for Alexanderplatz down the former Stalinallee (now Karl-Marx Allee) and almost right on top of the U-bahn (Strausberger Platz).
Big selection of German beer, both local standard beers, lots of Bavarians and beer from other areas. As a tourist looking for German beer it’s quite interesting. Prices are definitely more expensive than most German places.
