It has that Mikkeller Bar look for sure, close to the Copenhagen ones for sure. Tap selection is heavy on Mikkeller, few Baghaven, Warpigs,… Low on much else, few DE lager offerings. Limited bottle & can selection. Lots of classics and for this being Berling some 500 ml. pours were quite reasonable, 9ish euro for 500 ml. Warpigs Pale & Mikkeller Green Gold. Terrace was relaxing, dug my stay here for sure. Nothing hugely rare but an actual possibility to get into sessioning Mikkeller without going broke. Also tried a Mikkeller distillate. I enjoyed it definitely more than I expected. Good service.

Located on the 6th floor gourmet level. More standard offerings than anything else, prices more reasonable than expected. Bit too clean, modern, almost like hotel wine bar or something, didn’t fully fit it. It did fit within the surroundings. Not a bad addition to the floor.

Store in the gourmet food selection, looked quite posh obviously. Largely uninspiring BE beers & DE beers some cases available else for less money. Could have been more exciting, plenty of other places did have interesting things on the same level.

Tried hours after opening time, closed with no sign. Walked by later, still the same situation but with some vagrants chilling outside. Going by online reviews this the current state in general. Looked fairly dirty & rundown.

Close to the museum island, very touristic, view is great & place looks traditional enough, actually nice place to chill. Two beers on tap, Hell & Dunkel, Helles had light diacetyl & DMS but could be worse, Dunkel had largely the same but masked a bit by caramel. Two vegan options were available, tried the potato salad which was okay and fit the place. The patio was almost full. Prices are okay actually. Could have been way worse for sure. Toilet being paid also for customers took away a bit from it. Service was also bit better than expected. Not great but better than expected for sure.

Liked the Friedrichshain location more than this one for sure. Large spacious BrewDog bar. Service was on the uninterested spectrum but okay. One pinball machine only it seemed. Prices also seemed higher than Friedrichshain, 30 taps – about 2/3 of them being BrewDog Berlin & OG BrewDog, 330 ml. & 500 ml. pours but not everything available in both sizes. Straßenbräu, Gorilla, Fuerst Wiacek, Weihenstephaner on other taps. Right about okay. Smaller fridge selection. Food etc. available obv. Some seats reserved for that. Would recommend Friedrichshain over this one or other bars obv.

Neighborhood bottle shop & bar combination, Nordic smaller chic inside & tables outside. 8 taps with 300 & 400 ml. pours, interesting modern DE craft largely, one BA beer, lager, Stone & Mikkeller on tap as well. Selection of wines by the glass. 30 % discount for takeout. Fridge selection was bit more exciting than tap selection with few more exotic selection & cool cans & bottles. Tap beer could have been a bit colder & foamed hard, seems like installation is not functioning optimally. Service was good.

Apparently one of the first if not first craft beer bar in Berlin. Slightly rundown corner bar with nearly 20 taps. Good amount of beers are from Berlin but only from a small number of breweries (lots of Gorilla), indicated clearly as such which is fun. Some odd foreign choices on tap like Kees, Two Chefs, choices bit more motivated by cost than hype or quality it seems. Okay prices. Seems to be bit former glory but still gets a lot of traffic, tourists etc. From what I have heard it is a bit former glory but still not bad. Beer I got wasn’t all that impressive and neither was the condition.
