Craft Beer Lab
Time Out says
Since settin up shop up in Akaretler in 2012, Craft Beer Lab has introduced over 100 international brews to Istanbul’s beer lovers. The interior’s steel-meets-wood is both decorative and functional, as the large pipe hanging above the counter connects the many taps lining the bar front with the upstairs cold room, where the kegs are kept fresh in controlled temperature. The waiters at Craft Beer Lab take their beer seriously and approach food pairing with the sensitivity of a sommelier; that chopped steak served with strained yoghurt does indeed go nicely with a pint of London Pride. The roadside tables are ideal if you want to partake in some people watching while sipping a cold one, or you can grab a chair under the shade of a tree in the lush back garden and forget that you’re in downtown Istanbul. Don’t miss their October-fest themed events that take place concurrently with the festivities in Munich.
