These days Berlin, as one of the main locations of the German craft beer scene, is inundated with craft beer concept stores and bars. There are places serving craft beers and assorted meats, or even craft beer with crepes. I like beer, but sometimes I find the craft beer hype somewhat over the top. Beer, the most democratic of drinks, was never meant to be tasted and discussed. Beer should be enjoyed, in the company of friends, without restrictions and pretentiousness.
Thankfully, this is the exact idea behind Home. This relatively new bar just around the corner of Ostkreuz station is all about beer, but without any pretentiousness. They have eight beers on tap and over 30 bottled ones from around the globe (including Einstök from Iceland, yay!), and you won’t find the word ‘craft’ anywhere on the menu – it’s really just about good beer here.
They also offer weekly live acts and parties on the weekend, all in the cozy surroundings of what would count as a slightly hip-ish neighborhood pub on the British Isles. In addition, they also offer cheese and meat platters to go with the beer. Without judging you, whatever you order.
