You like to discover new beer flavours, local breweries and get lost in the city you just landed in? Very well, the Eschenbräu brewery is made for you. It’s located in Wedding, in the bermuda triangle formed by U-Wedding, U-Amrumer Straße and U-Leopoldplatz. Even with the address you will need some time to find the place, but it’s worth fighting for.
You’ve reached the house number, made it to the building, passed the entrance and entered the backyard. Easy to find in summer as it extends its winter configuration with a beer garden with the typical outdoor tables under the branches of a huge tree, producing nice shadows. If it’s raining there is still the bar downstairs located next to the garden under the containers and pipes you can see by the window.
As many local breweries do, Eschenbräu offers three or four different beers and a seasonal beer and apple juice. And because they know how to brew, you will always have an excuse to come back, at least I do. It is common to see people coming with empty bottles, getting them filled up by the bartender and taking them home for later degustation. A flammekueche can come with the drink, always good during the winter, if you’re not keen on it you are free to bring your own picnic, the staff will even provide you with plates and cutlery.
