I found this sign in Berlin – a Kietzkneipe is a local pub in Berlin slang. Sometimes that’s what you need. With your standard beer, some local heroes to hang out with. And if you ask them politely, you might convince them to order some bottles of your favorite brews. Ask some brewery reps to deliver a few samples.
I’m afraid I don’t have any local pubs in the neighborhood. But there is one close to work I should step by more often. With a fine range of bottled beers and sidewalk seating in the summer.
That’s a new year’s resolution for me.
