To the south west of the city in Wilmersdorf near Schöneberg lies one of Berlin's little known gems, the Wirtshaus zum Nussbaum, at Bundesplatz 5. Fortunately both the S-Bahn and the U-Bahn stop almost right out front, so it's easy to get to from almost anywhere, it just might take some time.

There's a small outdoor area under the walnut trees, hence the name, with 50 seats during the warmer months. (On that note, a wirtshaus is a "word house" where people would meet, not to be confused with a wursthaus!)

Inside it's quite cozy and charming with lots of wood, stained-glass windows, and antique lamps, photographs, paintings and maps. As you enter there's an original bar area to the right, and there are dining areas in front of you and to your left. Altogether they can seat about 100 plus another 40 for banquets.

They have a full menu, and hot foods are served from 11:30 am until midnight. The food is traditional Berliner fare, and quite good at reasonable prices. Here are some examples:
Starters / Appetizers -
Potato Soup €4,20
Gulasch €4,50
Mixed Salad w/ egg, ham, cheese & baguette €8,50
Baked Camambert Cheese w/ cranberries, butter & toast €7,95

Entrees & Traditional Berliner Dishes -
"Strammer Max"... ham, eggs, and bread €8,75
Königsberger Klopse... meatballs in capers-white sauce w/ potatoes €10,75
Chicken Fricassée w/ mushrooms, asparagus, and rice €11,25
Kasselerbraten... cured pork w/ sauerkraut and potatoes €11,25
Bollenfleich... lamb & onion stew w/ potatoes & salad €11,75
Schinkeneisbein... ham knuckle w/ sauerkraut, peas, and potatoes €12,50 (@$17.00)

International Dishes
Pork Wienerschnitzel w/ fries & salad €11,50
Veal Tenderloins w/ mushrooms & salad €13,50
Fried Beefsteak w/ roast potatoes & salad €15,95 (@$21.50)

More important than their food, they have 18 beers on tap! That's pretty much unheard of in Berlin, and I'm not aware of any other establishment that has as many.
Here's the list:
1 Kilkenny ,2L/€2,40
2 Guinness
3 Memminger Pils ,3L/€2,60
4 Rothaus Pilz Tannenzäpfle ,3L/€2,80
5 König Pilsener ,3L/€2,80
6 Flensburger ,3L/€2,80
7 Bitburger Pils
8 Warsteiner
9 Wernesgrüner
10 Budweiser Budvar ,3L/€2,90
11 Pilsener Urquell
12 Kloster Andechs hell
13 Zille Pils ,3L/€2,60
14 Wallenstein Hefeweizen ,3L/€3
15 Duckstein (Rotblondes Oberbräu) ,3L/€2,90
16 Köstritzer Schwarzbier
17 Früh Kölsch
18 Beer of the month (changing depending upon the season)

I only listed the prices for the beers my party tried, which were all ,3L glasses (except for the Kilkenny which is just ,2L) although they do serve ,5L glasses. You should be able to tell from the slight variations in pricing, however, that they take their beer seriously - and these prices are reasonable.

Overall, regardless of whether or not you're looking for a place to try a few different beers, this is a really nice place to have an inexpensive lunch or dinner (they take - and suggest - reservations!).
