Brauhaus Lemke is one of the oldest functioning microbreweries in Berlin; for a city that really loves beer, that's saying quite a lot. The brewery was started by Oli Lemke in 1998 when he put together his own brewing system in his garage. Friends helped him set up the brewing system in an old S-Bahn unit, and in 1999, the Brahaus Lemke served its first beer. Today, visitors can sample the brewery's excellent craft beers, and even take home some bottles of their very own. The brewery also serves up delicious traditional German fare to go with its brews.
In a country that is known the world over for its profound love of beer, it is hard for any single brewery to distinguish itself from the rest, yet the Vagabund Brauerei has done just that. This local brewery and taproom offers a modest selection of small-batch, craft beers on tap, alongside a well-curated selection of bottled varieties. Of special note are the brewery's own experimental creations, including a rather delicious salted lime beer. The staff on hand are always friendly and happy to share their knowledge. The brewery is located on site, so be sure to ask for a tour for a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes. Whether you are a connoisseur or are simply curious, the Vagabund Brauerei will welcome you with open arms.
