Berliner Weisse and some other refreshing German beer

The heatwave in Europe becomes unbearable lately, soon next Tuesday it will hit 35 degrees Celsius. Scary! And, the mobile aircos in all shops are already sold out. While thinking what I can do and where I can go to escape the heat. I just collected some beer pictures from my trip in Berlin. Hopefully they can make you feel refreshed too, if you are in Europe 😀

Berliner Weisse

I was fascinated by the neon color of this Berliner Weisse, the green one is with herbal woodruff taste and the red one, raspberry. When I read about the origin of these Berliner Weisse, I discover originally these beers are made to resemble the Belgium sour ales, like kriek. Although I have to say, the Belgian similarities taste a bit better in my opinion 😛 The green one is still special, for its color and unique taste. 

If you ever visit Berlin, give it a try, many bars offer it.

Eschenbräu

Eschenbräu is a bar and beer garden in Wedding (yea, nice name I know) district in Berlin. They have its own house brewery next to the beer garden. They make all different kind of beer, the one I ordered was great. It tastes a bit similar to the Belgian’s Best Duvel Citra triple hop (not that strong though), fruity and fresh. My favourite beer garden in town!

Address: Triftstr. 67, 13353 Berlin

 

More tasty German and Berlin beers: Gosser and Schofferhofer. I tried these three together with Steem Team Berlin @future24 @lex030 @datristan and @kathybell. It was great fun!

I hope you survive the heatwave, cheers!

最近欧洲大暑,热的不太正常。好像连北欧都热,加上这里大家都没有空调,太艰苦了。本来打算去买个移动空调救急,结果都实体店网店卖光了,想想那还是算了吧。这种大热天据说还有延续一周,下周还有几天热得不行,我正在想怎么避暑哈哈!

现在先分享几张德国啤酒图解解暑。德国啤酒全世界有名(偷偷说一句:其实我觉得我们比利时啤酒更好喝)。在柏林我也尝了不少有意思的啤酒。首先必须一提的是Berliner Weisse,尤其是绿色的,绿色的是不是很晃眼,颜色有意思,味道也有意思,是一种草的味道。红色比较常见,是树莓味。据说这种啤酒最初是模仿比利时的酸味啤酒,所以味道有点像比利时的樱桃酒的意思。

在柏林有很多“啤酒花园”,其实就是露天酒吧的意思了,其中有一家叫做Eschenbräu,是柏林人最喜欢去的一家,除了有自酿啤酒,还有一些德式披萨和面包,可以在这里做一下午避暑。他家的自酿啤酒很好喝,清新有多重hop的感觉。后来见了Steem的柏林帮,又尝了其他不同的啤酒。

你们要是去德国,别忘了尝尝这些啤酒哦!

 

Sunday flea market in Berlin – RAW Flohmarkt

I always get this feeling that Berlin is a place for flea market and vintage/second hand shopping. During my short stay in Berlin, I went for a visit in one of the most popular Sunday flea market in town, the RAW Flohmarkt, a former railway repair factory turned into a trendy marketplace. 

When I saw RAW market, I remembered this place directly with graffiti all around. Even though last time when I was in town was already more than 5 years ago and it was in the winter, I still remember my couchsurfing host took me here back then but not on Sunday, so it was much quieter. 

You can still see the old railway track here.

Want some orange juice?

Handmade engraved coins.

A block away from RAW, there’s another marketplace in the square.

The market itself isn’t that big, there are around 30 stalls by the time I was there, if you go a bit earlier, you should be able to see more. But the place is much more than a few stalls selling second-hand stuff. There’s a lot to do. There are a few beer gardens where you can enjoy a couple bottle beer in the shade. You can go wall climbing as well. The area is famous for its nightlife scene, but during the day there’s a beach bar with party (entrance fee around 8 euro). If you come to Berlin in the summer, you can enjoy partying any time. It’s also a great place to spot some nice murals.

今天跟我去看看柏林的一个周末二手市集RAW。在柏林有不少这样的二手市集,RAW应该算比较酷的一个,这个市集建在废弃的火车维修站(哈哈,欧洲很多城市都喜欢把废弃火车维修站建成比较trendy的二手市集)。

我一看到这个市集,居然还记得五年多前第一次来柏林的时候,就来过这里,当时我玩沙发客,沙发主是个古巴人,很喜欢玩派对夜生活,领着我来这里玩,当时是冬天也不是周日,看上去没那么热闹。夏天的周日早晨来这里很有意思,虽然摊位不是很多,大概30多个吧,但是这个可不仅仅是市集而已,有很多其他的活动,比如有露天啤酒吧,这个在柏林可流行了。还有可以爬墙,看上去也很好玩。如果往里面走,还有一个海滩酒吧,白天就有DJ趴体可以玩,所以夏天来柏林任何时间都可以享受趴体乐趣,不需要等到晚上,是不是很有意思呢!

这个区域遍布涂鸦,喜欢街头艺术的可以来这里找到你喜欢的涂鸦墙哦!

WooHoo! I finally reach Rep 71. Thanks all!!

I remember reaching Rep 70 right after my Central Asia trip and it took more than 4 months to reach that rep. Back then I could never believe 71 is coming much faster than from 69 to 70!

It was a great journey in the past 2 months. Thanks to all that has ever dropped by, left comments and gave me whatever amount of support! 

So, in case you don’t know what I’ve been up to on Steem (since I’ve never really written a proper self-introduction :D):

  • Inspired by Steemit news star @reseller (You don’t know who he is? check out his Steem Minute News show, it was great!), I started doing a daily news show in Chinese two months ago, reporting some interesting news of Steem on a (almost) daily basis. I hope my new reporting skill can get better and better throughout time! 
  • It was a honour to become Steemhunt influencer, I’m curating Steemhunt posts often lately and trying to motivate excellent hunters.
  • I’ve been blogging and will blog about my travels, my biggest passion regarding travelling is the least discovered part of the world, say, West Africa and Central Asia. I’m planning a Round-The-World trip, hopefully within 2 years. 

Some of my past travels, map generated with @steemitworldmap. 

Lately crypto is pretty low, so I decide not to travel much until SF3, then after that I’m going to travel to multiple parts of Africa, Zanzibar, Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana (or Liberia?) As I always prefer to explore developing countries, my ultimate goal is also to bring Steem to these parts of the world. 

Again, Thanks everyone!!!!

 

前天从柏林回来,发现我的Steem声望变成了71,每次都很巧,差不多都是旅行回来升级…… 记得上回升级是从中亚回来,当时花了差不多4个半月,没想到这次居然比上次快了一些。其实去年年底11月的时候,我对升级都不太抱有希望了,因为当时币价跟现在一样低迷。所以现在回头看,真的觉得已经是太好运了,碰上了Dapp的一些机会。

最近币价很低,从现在到SteemFest,我打算省点钱,暂时不出门大旅行了。说来也有意思,以前我只要有一些小钱,就会想着买张机票或者买条好看的裙子什么的,自从去年春天卖了很多Dash去南美旅游,错失了后来Dash飙升,错过了几十万,我就变的对买机票也很小心了,尽量不卖币…… 现在我衣服也都懒得买,看来加密货币居然让我变成一个极简主义的人,挺好的!

扯远了,如果你不了解我最近在Steem忙什么,主要忙两件事,一个是我在播新闻,每天找一些我觉得有意思(有钱途)的Steem新闻分享给大家。虽然水平不是很专业,希望以后越来越顺畅。还有就是Curate好的Steemhunt,很荣幸成为他们的Influencer,之前由于Hunt团队一直更新他们的规则,我也是半信半疑,后来通过跟团队交流,发现团队很多人都很值得学习,他们也是很有远见。

然后,我要不忘初衷,继续分享我的旅游心情。年底我要去我自己不太熟悉的非洲大陆,先去坦桑尼亚的美丽小岛Zanzibar,然后去西非的科特迪瓦和加纳或者Liberia。我喜欢去没有太多游客的发展中国家玩,看看各个地方人们的生活,如果Steem一直健在,也希望把Steem分享出去,因为也许对我们来说收益微薄,对他们来说也许可以解决一天的开支。

最后,谢谢大家一路以来给我的支持,谢谢你们!(90度鞠躬!)

 Haus Schwarzenberg Street Art Alley in Berlin

While visiting the east side of Berlin, I discovered Haus Schwarzenberg street art alley accidentally. It’s a narrow passage in the middle of a shopping street, full of very intricate and cool murals and tags. 

Haus Schwarzenberg started as a non-profit arts organisation that occupies the building deep within the Hackescher Markt and the alley next to it. The alley truly has a vibrant atmosphere, combined with creativity in this courtyard, you can spot some works made by famous street artists such as El Bocho, Stinkfish, Otto Schade, etc. There are two cafe’s and an ice-pop shop in the valley, you can relax with beautiful graffiti.

今天我想介绍一下柏林的Haus Schwarzenberg涂鸦墙艺术街。这条街比较隐蔽,藏在一条商业街的一个小弄堂。进去以后才发现别有洞天,墙面布满了有意思的涂鸦。不宽也不长的街看得我目不暇接。
 
涂鸦作品也不乏著名的街头艺术创作者,比如El Bocho, Stinkfish, Otto Schade等。如果你喜欢街头艺术,不要忘记在逛柏林东部的时候来这里逛逛。Haus Schwarzenberg有两家露天咖啡店,一家画廊,和一个卖冰棍的店,可以在这里拍拍玩玩。
 
昨天上传的Vlog里面也提到这里,欢迎大家去看看哦!
