We decided to go to this brewpub at it was recommended by the guy at Frankenbier Connection (bottleshop in the same area). They have a cool logo with a buxom girl. We had the dunkler stern which tasted like tainted homebrew. We also had the hefeweizen which was only ok. This place looks like an american style brewpub, ie more like a restaurant than a brewery. The food looked decent but we did not try it. I was not particularly impressed with this place. They do have wi-fi though if you need it. If I was in Berlin again, I would not go back here.

The Brauhaus Sudstern is located in the front of an apartment building in the nicer Sudstern neightborhood. Almost american style, they have a small dining area on the front patio, an indoor dining area and a slightly separated long bar area. The brewing equipment takes up a corner of the front of the bar area. They have three full time beers and seasonals as appropriate. The service was good, the beers were tasty and seemed true to style, but the menu seemed a litle pricy. I't a short walk from the U-bahn. I would like to go back.

Interesting space in Kreuzberg near the Sudstern stop with a portion of the floor that allows you to see down to the brewing area. A long bar near the entrance, a front seating area with a small stage, and a back area with large tables. Also patio space out front and perhaps out back too for use in non-winter weather. Their logo is a cross between a hofbrau waitress and xena warrior princess (or wonder woman depending on your generation).

The beers were fine - a dunkel with some roast, a perfectly decent Helles, Hefe and Fest. I got a little butter from the Fest, but the Hefe was quite good with a citrus nose and some caramelized banana. It's a bit darker than most Berlin Hefe/weizens. Unfortunately the food was pretty disappointing. We ordered specials, which were a bit pricey. The meat was not tender (lamb and wildschwein), the sauces and potatoes were not very interesting. The "bratkartofelln" were boiled potatoes covered in paprika.

We were also not successful at finding out what other beers might be coming up. Ah well. Worth a stop for the beer and perhaps you will have some luck with something interesting being on tap. From the webpage and the history of the brewer it appears he has done some innovative beers.

Update May 2011:
Now with Rollberg and the Franken connection in the neighborhood, this place is worth the stop specifically for the XXL triple bock which was like liquid orange marmelade soaked in port. YUM!
