We picked up a map in our hostel for "young people" and this pub piqued our interest with its GDR style description.
Located in neustadt the bar is a quirky mix of tables, seats and styles. A large selection of beer is on offer, many local micro brewed. The guide recommended their Lenin beer, unfortunately it was out of stock so we plumped for Elbhang Rot (4.7% - €1.50), Bio Neustadt Hell (4.9% €1.80) and Dresden Cider (2.5% €1.90). All went down very well.
We supplemented our beer with some cheap, hearty pub fare.

Sort of place you could take a book, discuss the world or watch a band in. Recommended.
