Hopfenreich claims to be the first craft beer bar in Berlin, and I cannot find any other place that claims that. I feel like, maybe, Vagabund in Wedding, is a little bit older but I might be wrong. At the end, who cares about it?
Hopfenreich is located in a surprisingly quiet corner in Kreuzberg. Close to the party center that is Schlesisches Tor, this is a place to taste some beers before you head towards another bar or go clubbing. At least, this is what I do when I visit this excellent craft beer bar.
One of my favorite details in the bar is how the beers come from taps that were built into old machinery and the huge mural that decorates one of the walls. There you can learn more about different types of beers and, maybe, try something new from the tap.
Hopfenreich is located next to the U-Bahn Schlesisches Tor, but you can see it better on the map below. They’re open daily, from 16:00 on, and you will love to visit it. Also, they offer beer tasting!
