Ein besonderes Jahr. Ein besonderes Alt! Voller Stolz stellen wir Ihnen anlässlich unseres 175-jährigen Bestehens zum 01. Mai 2013 das neue Familienmitglied der ältesten Hausbrauerei Düsseldorfs vor. Unser Jubiläumsaltbier ›1838er‹ wird mit erlesenen Zutaten und viel Liebe zum Detail von unserem dynamischen und kreativen Brauerteam mit 5,0% Alkohol gebraut. Die spezielle Auswahl an Gerstenmalzen und exklusiven Aromahopfen verleiht dem neuen Glanzlicht unseres Hauses seine dezente Bittere sowie sein sensationelles fruchtig-prickelndes Hopfenaroma. Ein Feuerwerk der Geschmackssinne – Prost!
