The first place I visited when I arrived in Dusseldorf for my 2-day stay. Had some lunch, as well as the Fuchschen Alt, which was incredibly delicious, very rich, right level of sweetness, properly hopped. For lunch I ordered the Schlachtplatte, which has some liverwurst, bratwurst, bloodwurst, back bacon, and a couple of other sausages - served with mashed potatoes and red cabbage. Wonderful meal. I even came back the next day for more food, ordering the special of the day, which was pork roast with cabbage and potatoes. Don’t visit Dusseldorf without hitting this place.
This is on the north end of the Altstadt and seems to be a popular spot. We were there pretty late in the evening on a quest to try every Altbier that evening. Upon arriving I asked to try all their house beers, to which they gave me attitude and asked if I meant an Altbier. I asked if they make anything else in addition to the alt and they came out with a bottle of hefe. The hefe wasn’t all that good, at least compared to the Alt. It was called silver fox. They also have a stuffed fox in a glass container above the bar. The place was pretty open and didn’t have the same feel as the other brewpubs. Service was a little gruff but not disrespectful or anything.
A rather fine, classy by german standards hang out with delicate glass ornaments and a really nice fox vitrine. A mixed clientele of business people, tourists and locals. I have not eaten, but it smelled very good. Their weiyen may be a bit ordinary, but their alt is the crispiest in town.
Visited late December 2008. Nice rather typical and cozy place. Tried the alt as well as the bottled weizen. Teh waitor was fast, but a bit typically rude, from what I understand. Got a pea and vegetable soup with wurst which was nice and well worth the money. Did not check out the toilets.
A typical old fashioned German beer-hall; wooden barrels, wood on the walls and on the ceilings........Often a bit overcrowded (in the evenings), but their Alt is worth a journey ! Quite tasty (by brewery-tap standards) meals, prompt service.
The Weihnachts-Bier ( a stronger Alt) is available in bottles already in November, on draught only on December, 24th...................
