22 beers on tap, 30 bottled beers and 5 spirits made in Berlin – Hopfenreich is a paradise for beer lovers and everyone who wants to become one. This so-called “Berliner Eckkneipe” (corner pub) was opened in 2014 as one of Berlin’s first Craft Beer Bars. You ask what Hopfenreich means in German? It’s an adjective, that describes a beer which is full of hops.
Whether an Ale with a hint of pepper from Michigan or a classic Pils made in the Berlin neighborhood Friedrichshain – the barrels come from everywhere and change every day. If you are not sure what to drink, just ask the nice barmaid – she knows what you like! And you can even try a sip to be sure.
While chatting and sipping take a look at the taps, which are made of old lathes and drills. Together with the rustic wooden interior and the dim light Hopfenreich resembles an old workshop which could be linked to the times 100 years ago, when Kreuzberg was a worker’s district and every street had its garages and corner pubs.
You can’t get enough of good beer bars in Berlin? Try Hops & Barley in Friedrichshain or local breweries like Vagabund and Eschenbräu in Wedding. Need some souvenirs for home? At the store Hopfen & Malz you get great German and international bottled beers! (check all these article on the blog.)
