As I was scouting for my second edition of BeerBerlin map, I found many restaurants and bars and breweries, which offer tasty beer in Berlin. So what’s the best place for a typical Feierabend in and around Berlin? The city is full of many amazing beer spots, so it was hard to pick just five. So relax, sit back with a beer and enjoy this post! In case you need a good overview of beer gardens in Berlin, my BeerBerlin map can help you out.
Local brewery with a wide range of classic German and international beer styles. Speciality of Lemke is their “Berliner Weisse” – a sour beer style originated in Berlin in the 17th century. The “Weisse” is produced with a traditional three culture fermentation. Beside the “Budike Weisse” (a pure Berliner Weisse) they offer also a version fermented with real raspberries, real woodruff and aged on oak. Brewpubs at Hackescher Markt and close to Alexanderplatz. Brewery tours in German are available, for groups of 10 or more tours in English can also be arranged – previous reservation is necessary.
