“Nice traditional brewery.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Have visited a few of these great traditional places across Germany and this is no exception. Located next to the old Citadel and was a welcome rest point after walking around there. We took advantage of their currywurst with some lovely fresh beer. Impressive and cosy place to visit. If in the area this is a must.

Very German pub with a couple of great beers and excellent food. Highly recommended. You have to try the Currywürst!

“High-quality meat - even fine women could not resist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Visited several times. Excellent meats with quality much above average. Beer is very good, too. However, some extra waiters would be useful: there are few of hem, they are real pros, but sometimes you need to wait a bit more. The building itself is very nice. Summarizing: go here for excellent typical German food.

“Beer is Ok, but don't touch the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

The menu is very limited, but the kitchen is not able to cook even those.

We ate some sausages and one sausage salad. The salad was worst I've ever got - there was a lot vinegar (probably like a sauce) and you can imagine that slices of sausage and vinegar is not the best combination. I could not eat it. The traditional curry wurst was not even close to the best ones either, because the sauce was almost pure ketchup without any curry taste. The normal bratwursts were OK, because there was not any sauce to spoil them.

The beers were not that good either - meaning that it is not the reason to visit there either.

“Best beer in Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Each time I come to Berlin, I go at least once to Brauhaus Spandau. Probably there are some places in Berlin where you can find better beer, but I haven't found any.
This place is a brewery not only by name, but they really make beer there by their own recipes, and the tables are placed around two huge copper boilers. Apart from two standard sorts: light and dark beer - each month they brew some special sort.
The service is very friendly.
The food is rather simple, which perfectly matches for beer restaurant, but very delicious. The traditional dishes, which you can find elsewhere in Berlin, say X-large Currywurst or Home-style Herring fillet, but they are prepared really at their best.
