STRASSENBRÄU: THE NEIGHBORLY BREWPUB WHERE EACH BARREL SURPRISES

STRASSENBRÄU: THE NEIGHBORLY BREWPUB WHERE EACH BARREL SURPRISES

Whether you’re a beer pro or merely curious about ale, you’ll definitely want to try the entire menu at Straßenbräu, the Friedrichshain brewery and pub where experimentation is very much the norm. Since 2015 founder Timo Thoennißen and his team have been on a mission to bring an endless variety of ales, wheat beers and stouts to Berlin drinkers. But what makes this craft beer pub different? For one thing, it’s the team’s willingness to be bold. Head brewer Sebastian Pfister isn’t afraid to challenge German beer orthodoxy, recently causing a storm with the “Coconaut”, a chocolatey stout that rather improbably contains coconut. Like the team, the offerings are international, with the “Sonnenallee 20″ pale ale that combines German and American hop varieties for a truly transatlantic brew. Beer making is onsite, and you can swig your brew amongst the very kegs and brewing tanks from which it came, or simply head outside to one of the traditional beer tables and bring your own food from the surrounding imbisses. Not enough time to taste everything? You can also take the brews home in 1L bottles. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Johanna Rademacher-Flesland & Straßenbräu)
