Posted by Brigitte Cox on Tue, May 4, 2010 @ 15:12 PM

‘Altbier' from Dusseldorf (literally old beer) is part of the longstanding art of brewing. Freshly tapped, it's not only loved by Dusseldorfers, it's a delicious treat to taste for all visitors! There are several breweries in Dusseldorf with long traditions and history. Try one - or try a few. It's definitely worth exploring, each with its own style of Altbier to savor.

A brewery with a long tradition, Schumacher bought the brewery in 1838, including the pub with its attractive wood carvings. The atmosphere is jovial around the long, scoured wooden tables.

Its coat of arms contains a fox - and an ale is brewed here, which is among the best of its kind. Good, down to earth Rhenish food is served and the pub also has its own butcher shop offering sausages to go.
