We were fairly late in finding a place to go for the Easter family break, which meant the cheap tickets were gone for Paris, Amsterdam and England. But Air Berlin and Norwegian Air Shuttle had nice fares, it is only an hour and a half from Oslo, and we found a nice hotel on the East side of town.
All in all we were four adults and four kids, so I did not expect much time to explore the more beery sides of town. But, as usual, with careful advance planning, a little help from Google plus fantastic spring weather, I managed to find some nice stuff.
We stayed in Friedrichschain, the part of East Berlin where we ended up on our January visit. I did not have time for a return visit to the two brewpubs we visited at the time, but that was no reason to go thirsty.
