What to expect at Berlin Beer Week

Berlin Beer Week features an exciting and varied programme to showcase the diversity of brewing in the German capital, including:

  • A big opening event
  • Beer cruises
  • Craft beer tasting sessions
  • Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival
  • More than 30 other events at bars and breweries all over Berlin

Berlin Beer Week (BBW) sees renowned local breweries, craft beer bars and international top-shelf breweries host events in the German capital, promising food and beer pairings that will make your tongue tickle. Think classic tasting sessions, brewing courses, freaky and inspired combinations of beer and the arts, music and dance, games - and a lot, lot more! The only limit is your imagination. 

From beer ice cream and Bavarian pub crawls with oompah bands to beer karaoke and beerlesque, the festival has seen a lot over the years, but it’s nowhere near done. The Berlin Beer Week festival programme is already live on the website for you to book onto the events you’re interested in - and stay tuned for monthly updates.

Berlin Brews Cruise

This year will also see the return of the ever-popular Berlin Brews Cruise - which promises 40 extremely rare beers on tap, on a three-hour River Spree cruise - too popular, perhaps, as it has already sold out. 

But don’t worry - there’s still tickets available for the Budvar Cruise, the tasting sessions and other events, so grab them while you still can! 

This year’s festival beer: Queen Kong

This year’s festival beer will again be a blast, just like the opening tasting session. BBW has teamed up with Brlo Brewery and Gorillas Cerveceria Berlin to bring to you Queen Kong, a 6% Indian Pale Lager.
