Strassenbräu is a craft beer bar in Friedrichshain that has one of the most exciting menus we have seen in the bars around town. Whether you a beer curious or a pro, you’ll like to try out the entire list there. I know we almost did this when we first visited the place.
The craft beer bar and brewery opened to the public back in 2015. And its founder, Timo Thoennißen, has a mission to bring different beers, ales, stouts, and anything else possible to the Berlin beer drinkers. And they are doing this with a lot of success as you can see on the picture we took there on a cold November night.
But, you might be thinking about what is the difference between Strassenbräu and every other craft beer bar that Berlin has to offer. And we can say that our visits there felt like they were more experimental than average. We might think this is the work of Head brewer Sebastian Pfister, who even teaches how to brew your own beer there. You can take a look at the brewing courses here.
Since they brew their own beers there at Neue Bahnhofstrasse, they have all the tools to challenge German beer orthodoxy, and this is why we went there at first. But, of course, they have some international beers on their taps. But, differently from other craft beer bars that we covered here, I felt like the focus at Strassenbräu is on their own beers. Since they are great, I can totally understand this way of thinking.
Since they make beers onsite, the bar looks a little bit different, and you will sit among the brewing tanks and kegs where the beer is brewed. Which was something that gave this craft beer bar in Friedrichshain a unique atmosphere that I really enjoyed.
Strassenbräu can be found on the map below. They are open from 17:00 until 01:00, from Monday to Thursday. Fridays and Saturdays, there open from 14:00 to 02:00, and, on Sundays, you can grab some craft beers from 14:00 until 01:00.
They have beer tastings, teach you how to brew your own beer, and you can even take their beers home on the one-litre bottle. If you don’t know Strassenbräu, you know now that you need to drink some beers there.
