    I was afraid that I was stuck in a sea of pilsners and other varieties limited by Reinheitsgebot. HERMAN turned out to be an oasis for a beer fanatic. A good selection of sour and barrel aged beers!

    Great place owned by a very friendly Belgian guy called Bart who loves telling the story about Herman whose photo is on the menu. Ask him ;-) and ask why the bar has no surname.

    Beautiful bar, surprisingly modern interior. Fantastic choice of beers, incl the famous Palm, Duvel, Hoegaarden, Leffe, La Chouffe, Westmalle Tripel and many, many more. Really good prices as well!

    Bart is a very welcoming owner and beer afficionado. Stellar selection (probably largest in Berlin) of Belgian beers. Good talks too.

    The bar is very tripple-, dubbel- and football friendly. Fun chats with the owner guaranteed, and the selection is very solid. 4 numbers on tap, and their house brew is something to not overlook.

    This is my regular place in Berlin, the people are very diverse (ossies, expats, tourists) and very open for conversation. Love how Bart created a place for strangers to meet.

    Bart, the owner of the bar, is a great person to chat with. Apparently he named the place after his late German teacher from school back home in Belgium. Herman's portrait is on the menu cover.

    Friendly setting, maybe not the best place for me since I don’t like beer, the wine selection is very poor. But I can still appreciate the atmosphere and it’s a great place to chill with friends

    The home of all trappist beers. Good for a change from German beer. Friendly staff as well, they can recommend.

    Basically the only Belgian bar in the whole Berlin. The choice of beer is very nice, but in compare to other places prices for drinks bite. But! Different types of Kriek make this place worth of it!

    Huge selection of Belgian bottled beers, and the bartender will always make a good recommendation if you tell him what kind of beer you feel like drinking.

    Great service, the guy in the bar noticed I wasn't happy with my beer and offered me a new one with no extra charge. Always nice with places where the bartenders care.

    Mellow Belgian beer bar with a solid beer list. Look for the gueuzes and the krieks, including cantillon, 3 fonteinen, boon, our beersel, etc.

    Germans don't really seem to understand the stuff, but this place has an excellent selection of quality Belgian beers accompanied by expert advice from the Flemish barkeep.

    My favourite bar in Berlin. I found the easiest thing to do was tell the barman what sort of beer I liked and go with his suggestion.

    Very nice to drink different beers but the place is kind of boring. They should cheer up the place a little bit more, especially inside. Outside, in the summer, it is ok.
