MASH PIT: FRESH BREWS ON TAP AND WORKSHOPS FOR BEER-LOVERS IN THE GRAEFEKIEZ

MASH PIT: FRESH BREWS ON TAP AND WORKSHOPS FOR BEER-LOVERS IN THE GRAEFEKIEZ

Beer is, of course, the German national drink. And almost as much fun as enjoying a refreshing ale or pilsner is brewing one yourself. Alas, producing a good brew at home can be quite a challenge, which is why Tim Hauke and Christian Gläser opened their own open-access brewery, Mash Pit, at beginning of 2019. Anyone with the time and passion can come to their bright and airy premises in Neukölln’s Graefekiez and do some brewing. The only requirement before you can work at one of their six brewing stations is to complete a six-hour workshop. There Christian will tell you everything you need to know about barley, hops and fermentation. Did you know, for example, that the color and taste of beer depends on how the barley is germinated and dried? By the end you can proudly hold your very own self-made beer in your hands before it goes into the cooler for four to six weeks. And if you can’t wait that long, there are a range of home-brewed beers available on tap for instant consumption. (Text: Hanna Komornitzyk / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)
