The Quest for the Holy Grain - Best Microbreweries





Vagabund Brauerei
Antwerpener Str. 3, 13353 Berlin, Germany

Vagabund Brauerei is a microbrewery in the Berlin suburb of Wedding.
When one enters the repurposed storefront from the not-so-busy side street, it still feels like a store.
To the right is the small bar where one can buy merchandise, draft beer, bottles, growlers, tee shirts, and other paraphernalia. All of that is located behind the counter.
The rest of the room has a few tables and chairs.
A door on the left was open to the rear where one could see the brewing equipment and the brewers brewing.
They brew in the evening as they have day jobs.
The offered beers included 2 of their own and several guest beers.
The bottle selection had several from the US.
As vagabund points out on their website:
Nothing ever tasted better than a cold beer on a beautiful afternoon with nothing to look forward to than more of the same. Hugh Hood

Westerners in Berlin who are getting weary of Pils, Dunkels, and Hefeweizens, and are beginning to have withdrawal symptoms from lack of hops, may wish to seek out Heidenpeters.
Heidenpeters is a new micro- brewery in Berlin's Markthalle Neun.
Located in the Kreuzberg neighborhood, it is similar to an American microbrewery in that it is only open for limited this case Thursday evening, and Friday and Saturday afternoons. Heidenpeters brews American-style beers such as Pale Ale and Red Ale. Since they have no facilities, the Heidenpeters' patron must wander around the market whilst drinking their beer.
Thus they charge a deposit on the glass.
Early on a Thursday evening, they seemed to be doing a good business.
