    Here you drink half liters of Weihenstephaner unless you know your German beer game.

    A piece of Germany in Amsterdam! Lady owner comes from Munich and she brought a piece of Berlin feeling with her when she made this place. Amazing beers, great German snacks, and cozy atmosphere. Win!

    Brecht is a tiny but cozy cafe with a Berlin-feel, where they serve an excellent selection of German beers. Tip: get here early, because it can get quite crowded. Great for dates!

    Se estiver com saudades de Berlin tem sofás , pouca luz e cerveja alemã. Mas se um berlinense visse essa galera bebendo club mate no copo com gelo e Berliner Pils custando 3,50€ dava risada.
