Alles Elbe – Or craftbeer all along the Elbe river

Surprisingly I had the good fortune to get the book “Bier leben” fresh from the printers. It’s actually a book about the old and new beer brewery culture. As a wine drinker in the beginning it was just another book about “beer”. I decided to go to the reading by Oliver Wesseloh and his wife Julia. And this is how I came to Alles Elbe.

Hidden in a small street just between the Schanze district and Reeperbahn district, at the Hein-Hoyer-Straße 63, I found myself in a very familiar place. It was very cosy and people smiled at me when I stepped into the small pub. I tried one beer called “Buddelship“, a pale ale.

While I was surprised at how different beer can taste, the reading started. It was a very interesting excursion through the world of beer and the atmosphere was really familiar. We tried so many beers there, one tasted like grapefruit, the other one was dark and tasted like bananas. We got some handmade spicy sausages from the pub’s owner. Later I had the chance to talk to him. He is so full of beer knowledge – amazing!

It’s been one year since the pub opened here. From spring until autumn you can sit in the beergarden. From time to time there are readings or little concerts. All in all I can say I’m a craft beer fan now. It’s a wonderful place! Go there!

A sign “refugees welcome” in the window makes it even more sympathetic!
