Give me your recommendations for good bars in Berlin and Hamburg-with a few provisos!

We are going to be in Berlin and Hamburg this week and we already have our sightseeing itineraries worked out. We would like to complement this by going to some great bars when we are there. Five people are going.
A few considerations that I hope you can take into account:
-ideally we would like to go to areas that have a concentration of bars/nightlife. A great bar in an isolated area may be great in it's own right, but being in a group, we would like to be in areas where we can bar-hop and move from one place to the next if the current one's not to our taste.
-we would like the bars to be quite lively.
-we like good dive bars, a little bit scuzzy is good.
-we would rather listen to rock music/electro than hard techno.
-we would like to drink nice beer.
-somewhere that sells great food is good.
-hipsterish is both good and bad. If you know a good hipster bar, please tell me, if you know one to avoid, please tell me.
-any other info such as subway stations, best times to visit an area, anything else that you can think of would be most appreciated.
I've been to Berlin before, read a few of the Berlin websites and previous threads but anything you have to add would be great.
