With its tiled floors & walls, exposed pipes, and visible brewing gear, Hops & Barley has a distinct English brewpub vibe to it. And while Germany generally trumps England in just about everything (football, cars, delicious sausages), this Berlin spot does well taking cues from the Brits. The Hops & Barley crew regularly brews pilsners, dark pils, wheats, and cider, and, on occasion they even bring out special IPAs and brown lagers.
Johannes Heidenpeter is operating his newish brewing project out of Kreuzberg's Markthalle Neun, offering market customers a range of IPAs, pale ales, saisons, and, come winter, stouts and porters.
This microbrewery is the project of three American ex-pats who were home brewers back in the states. Although the shop is currently only open on weekends, Vagabund is hard at work on small batch IPAs, Szechuan saisons, and coffee stouts.
This clothing and apparel store in Kreuzberg has a diverse collection of items and brands from athletic gear to outerwear.
Search and Destroy certainly isn't the most inviting name, but that doesn't seem to stop plenty of folks from checking out this sweet skate shop.
Located in Kreuzberg, Hard Wax carries a massive collection of old school records, ranging from just about any genre you can think of.
