Just follow the railway east from the H. Markt station and you can’t miss it. A modern brewpub (to quote Rune), three regular beers (Pilsner, Original and Weizen) with a seasonal. Ours was a stunning Märzen. Now, I know that I wrote brilliant or something 30 times today already, but this years edition might just be the best lighter lager I’ve had in the last half a year. The regulars are nice but not stellar. The service spoke good English (though we did try to communicate in broken German too, as usual :) ) and was friendly enough. We didn’t eat. Another one you shouldn’t miss while in Berlin.
Visited on June 5, 2008. In ’GBG Germany’ listed as pub number 8 under Mitte, page 446. Located in one of the arc’s below the S-Bahn. Looks almost the same inside as Mitte which we visited just before interior design, menus, sample trey is the same. Beer is better here though. Also feels cozier, though the frequent S-Bahns above was quite disturbing. Nice and clean toilets, even for Germany’s high standards. Service was OK, selcetion rather limited to their own brews. Did not eat. The sample trey is nice looking and a very good idea.
i like this place especially for it’s central location just off alex platz .. i never tried the food but seemed to me pretty standard .. the beer atre good but not exceptional, i prefer the original than pilsner and i enjoied the marzen as well ... the service is professional but not very frindly ..
Big, modern brew pub under the S-Bahn between Hackescher Markt and Alex. Platz. Friendly staff, my modest german was enough to get me a beer, but inevertably the barman broke into english to tell me about the food. Is my ignorance that obvious?! Gets a good rep for their beer. I had the Hefe Hell and the Original, both were ok. I hindsight I should have tried the seasonal Stout that was on, but drinking a beer descibed as ’English Stout’ in Berlin seemed a bit redundant to me. I was offered the all day brunch for 6 euros - a massive all you can eat buffet that the german patrons were tucking into. I didn’t go for it but it looked good value. All in all you’ll probably come here anyway ’cause its one of the stops on the Berlin beer trail. Its a decent place to linger. A word of caution: It was closed for a private function one of the days I was in town, don’t know how offen that happens, but bare it in mind. Oh, and they have a patio out the back.
Brewpub in a central location of Hackescher Markt. Beers are solely from the brewery usually 3-5 taps. Beers are pretty average, the quality varies from batch to batch. Recommended to order a sampler before ordering a pint. Reasonable prices. OK service. The food was surprisingly good. Overall a decent place for the dinner.
Visited March 2009. Bustling spot (mid-evening anyway) under the railway arches. Beers are solid enough without being exciting. Food was decent although I can’t remember what we ate. Considering how busy it was, service was prompt and friendly. Especially as I had to run straight past a line of people waiting to be seated to empty a dangerously overfull bladder. There was a short wait for a table but they said the wait would be 5 minutes and it was.
Nice brewpub in the railway arch close to S-bahn station Hackesher Markt. Quite spacious restaurant area and a nice beer garden at the back (or front if you enter from that side of the railway). They had five beers of their own on tap: Original (dunkel), Porter, Zwickel, Pilsener and Hefeweizen. Most of them were quite good. Service was efficient and friendly enough. It’s in a fairly lively area, so it might get crowded. Nice place, worth a visit, and it’s rather centrally located.
Located inside the rail bridge at the busy Hackescher Markt, this spacious but cozy (save for the occasional train screech, that is) brewpub offers an agreeable refuge for the tourist. The staff are friendly and service-minded. The selection is okay for a brewpub: eight taps of own produce, including some traditionally non-German styles, like the IPA or the Imperial Stout. The quality is mostly tolerable but do not expect beer wonders here. Decent food. Rather fair prices, given the location. Could be back to taste more of their beers.
This is a large open plan joint under railway arches with a warm friendly feel to it.
As you walk in, down a couple of steps the bar is just to the left, a few stools along it. You can also stand or sit to the right near the entrance otherwise it is food like seating on long tables. The toilets are to the right where another foody room and the brewing equipment is.
Service was attentive and pleasant, beer quality fine and although I only had the ’Flammkuchen’ on my two visits (Feb 2013) the proper food looked huge and good.
On my first visit I had the four glass ’Probe’ which held the only beers on tap available: good way to start if you don’t know which beer you are going to like.
