A few good points. 100 beers are indeed a lot for a German bar. There is nowhere else very beery in the immediate vicinity and it seemed to stay open (and lively) quite late. Which made it a handy place for a nightcap as our hotel was nearby, so we visited a few times during the course of a week. Service was fine. Some bad points. The beer list was pretty run of the mill (especially the draught selections) with few German rarities. And padded out with a lot of international lagers and commonplace Belgians (which I donít go to Germany for). Two of the three German beers on the list that I had not tried before were out of stock. The Mommsen-Eck house beer was presumably a rebadge but I never managed to find out what it was. So, overall, useful if you are in the area but probably of more interest to locals and country tickers than visitors seeking out new German rates.
Although this place didnít have a staff that knew the beers and the ambiance was less that average. I had a good time drinking the beers. The price was a little high but I guess the overall experience was average. I donít know why other people rated the selection so low since Iíve never seen a place in Germany with over 100 beer options. The options were the biggest plus.
Haus der 100 Biere is located in a really nice area of Berlin. They had a nice outdoor seating area and a large menu. The beer selection wasnít so great as none of the beers in my top 50 German beers that I hadnít tried were available. They did have Aventinus in bottles so you canít go wrong there, plus they had a number of common Belgians (this is probably one of the only restaurants in the city youíll see a Belgian beer). The food was pretty good. I had the beer chicken and my wife went with a salad which was huge. Worth a stop if you are in the area but not really a great destination for someone thatís rated a lot of brews already.
Average food for average service.
They have a decent selection of beers with an array of typical German food that will keep you full.
I know of many other places in Berlin that are far more friendlier, and that have a lot better food.
Might be a good experience, but one time visit should do it.
Hugely disappointing. Mainly because of slow service and an unfriendly staff that showed no interest in what they were serving.
Most of the 100 beers are on bottle, the selection was OK but not impressive. Most of the beers on tap are standard too but thumbs up for Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock on tap. But that is the only positive thing I can say about this place. I will not return!
This place was terrible, nearly all the beers were crap, I had some peat smoked effort from France that I could only have 2 sips of. The berliner kindl was better. Didnt eat, staff were pretty ordinary. I didnt like the area either, its all wanky.. and the prices in this place reflect that.
Visited their 2nd location, Mommseneck-Am Potsdamer Platz. Was able to add Namibia, Portugal and Switzerland to my list. And tried the Schneider Aventinus (superb) as well as the Berliner Kindl (awful). Service correct but although I sat by the bar was unable to pull the barkeep into conversation. Had 7 beers and hearty meal for under 35 euro. Crowd very middle of the road.
Smack bang in the middle of one of Charlottenburgís (spelling) eating strips. Nicely fitted out with plenty of wood panelling and a decent amount of seating. Middle aged crowd midweek. 16 beers on tap although nothing hugely adventurous. 300ml glass should cost around e2.70. What is far more impressive is to 100 strong bottle list. Quite global in its coverage and should please most beer geeks although it should be noted that thereís a fair chunk of macro rubbish (but of course they appealing to the general market Ė fair enough). Most bottles priced at e4.0. Clearly a standout in the Berlin scene based on my brief 3 day visit.
Located in Charlottenburg, near Kurfurstendamm. Nice selection of special beers from all around the world. When I was here, it was early in the afternoon, so it wasnít very crowdy. So, the service then was quite ok, but the ambiance not too good. Donít know if itís getting more crowdy on certain evenings.
