Club-Mate is the drink of choice in Berlin’s startup community. Since a few weeks there’s a new Mate in town, Mier, a mate-beer.
Fabricio do Canto, a member of the German Pirate Party, is the man behind the new beverage.
“At the pirate meetings people always bring beer and Club-Mate. That’s why I came up with the idea of combining the two”, says the pirate to Berliner Zeitung daily.
Right now, Mier is only available in Fabricio’s Meta Mate Bar in Prenzlauer Berg for 3 euros a pop, but soon you might also find it in a kiosk and a few restaurants in Berlin.
