Kollwitzplatz, Berlin

We left Stone and took a bus, then walked for a bit in some neighborhood and then two trains up to Kollwitzplaz in northern Berlin.

We ran into a farmer’s market, kids got ice cream while I watched a World Cup game at an Italian restaurant. Then we walked to Salt ‘n Bone for dinner where we found out that they, and most places in Berlin, don’t take credit cards! We have very little cash so we had to leave and find a place that does, eventually landing in another Italian restaurant.

The Kollwitzplatz neighborhood is very cool, I could spend more time there.

Stone Brewing in Berlin

We went south of Berlin to Stone Brewing’s brewery (and “world bistro”) – the first American brewery ever in Germany.

That photo is the good side (and the one they show in marketing material) but is the last view you see only if you go all the way through, out the back and turn around. The entrance is through an industrial part of town, which includes an Amazon warehouse, and then through a seemingly defunct gas works facility.

But inside is very cool:

They have the usual Stone beers available but also have some Berlin-only beers; two bocks, a Berliner Weisse, a Saison, a sour, etc.

Update April 5, 2019: Stone closed this brewery. I’m glad we got to see it.
