There is so much to discover in Berlin by a way of food, drinks, and culture. Let me show you how the locals do it!

"You are crazy my child. You must go to Berlin.
The famous Austrian composer Franz von Suppé wrote these lyrics back in 1800 but they are still very accurately describing the social and cultural extravaganza of this old yet modern city. Being born in the northeastern outskirts of the town, I have always been fascinated by this melting pot called Berlin. The clash between modernity and history also reflects in the renaissance of handcrafted beer varieties and a rapidly growing craft beer brewing scene in Berlin. Due to the so called German Beer Purity Law, a medieval order which dates back to 1516, the diversity of the German beer culture has historically been limited to the standard types like Pilsener, Helles, Dunkles and Hefeweizen. But since this law has been loosened, especially Berlin has become a petri dish for a lot of new micro breweries and brew pubs, where enthusiastic local as well as international brewers trying out new ingredients and flavours (not that Berlin ever cared about rules and cultural norms ;).
As a very open-minded food and beer lover, I eat and drink my way through the city in order to constantly discover new secret spots which I can't wait to share with you.
So do what for example David Bowie also did: Be crazy and come to Berlin!!"
