Warum?

Michael Jackson war ein toller Typ und mitverantwortlich für die Entwicklung der Craft-Beer-Szene wie wir sie kennen und lieben.
Das Crowd Funding der Vagabund Brauerei läuft im Juni aus. Wir wollen, dass es Erfolg hat! Ein Teil der Einnahmen des Abends geht dorthin.
Der Bier-Index hat kürzlich sein Bierlager im ECC bestückt, um von nun an hervorragende internationale Biere über ganz Berlin zu verteilen. Das ist ein Grund zum Feiern!
Die Berliner Bierszene zusammenbringen und vernetzen, wirklich gutes Bier trinken.

    Unfortunately, will not be able to make it for the movie and was too late to grab a place for tastings. Making a spot free. I hope it's not too late.

      Hi Chirantan; you're welcome to grab one of the tasting places at 19:00 or 20:00 if you would still like to join!

    Hi everyone. Since the addition of a third tasting, we now have some space freed up in the first two. If anyone wishes to join at 19:00 or 20:00, please contact me directly and I'll put you down.

    List of bottled beers available this Sunday just posted by Bier Index: https://www.facebook.com/events/447126072050085/

    The list too long to post here!

    Recommendation: find yourself a drinking buddy to share bottles with, as you will want to try many of these.
