Potsdam is more than castles and gardens. It is a university town and home to the parliament of the state of Brandenburg. And it has a splendid pedestrianised centre with small shops and cafes. The most charming part of that is the Dutch Quarter, which narrowly escaped the bulldozers in the final days of the DDR regime. Now it is restored to its former glory, and we headed there for dinner before returning to Berlin.
My beer radar steered me towards the Potsdamer Kulturcafe, an establishment rather strict in its approach to what to serve its customers. Well, the beers from Braumanufaktur had evidently passed the ecoløogical test. I knew of this local micro, but it was a bit out of the way, so I did not expect to be able to sample their brews on this occation.
Two beers in nice swing top bottles, a Hell and a Dunkel.
