If you are interested to find out what we consider good beer, please have a look at the beer rankings of Aktion Gutes Bier at the right. The figures come from a meta-analysis of twelve different beer rating sites on the internet. You find rankings for all major beer styles in Germany. Our goal is to offer as much of these beers as possible.
For travellers to Berlin, there is a story about good beer in the travel section of the New York Times.
