How do we select pubs for the Guide?

I realize it is a bit pretentious for somebody who lives in Los Angeles to do a web site on Good Beer Pubs in Berlin. But I hope you will find this guide useful in any case.

I've tried to include a mix of both modern multi-tap pubs and more traditional places that may only serve a beer or two. I've also included some pubs that might not be on many peoples top lists but showcase beers from different regional breweries that might otherwise be hard to find.

Like any other business, pubs open and go out of business on a regular basis. Before setting out on a long trek, please call ahead to make sure they are still open (or check the website, though sometimes the website lives longer than the business)
