Das Gift ist Irn Bru

From http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/sep/20/germany-british-food-popularity:

Anyone craving Irn-Bru can head to Das Gift, a new pub in the rapidly gentrifying Neuk├Âlln district run by Barry Burns, a musician in the Glaswegian band Mogwai, along with his Scottish wife, Rachel. Popular bar snacks include salt'n'vinegar crisps and Tunnock's Caramel Wafers.

Das Gift offers a large range of Scottish ales from breweries such as Williams Brothers and Brewdog. "The majority of customers who buy them are German, and they are very enthusiastic about trying them since they aren't very common in Germany at all," said Rachel. The beer is authentic but for one crucial difference. "I know some Scottish ales are recommended to be served at room temperature but summers in Berlin are sometimes just so hot and humid that a cold beer is necessary."

Thanks Ian
