Old German beer spot in Alt stadt. Most of folks inside were regulars. Staff did not care of foreigners. It was very rude if did not speak in German. It is a shame because beer was excellent.

Not easy to review this as it was around opening time (10), so not exactly busy and little atmosphere. Nice beer, not sure I would visit that often if I lived here though.

One of the worst experiences concerning beer. Yes - the regular Alt is good (Top 3 Dusseldorf) but the service is dammn near unforgettable. Whatever you do - Dont ask for their Latzenbier. I had 6 bottles set aside from the Sticke /Latzen event from a few days before but they all of a sudden refused to sell it. I showed them my email confirmation/deal I made with one of their Co-Workers and they freaked. Nearly got kicked out. Go to their tap: Goldener Kessel , instead. Better service and friendlier waitors.

Nice place where I sat at the smaller room where no food was served. Dark wooden interiour where they service the altbier directly from the wooden barrel. Came with a new beer right after you are done with your glass, nice one.

The Schumacher brewery and restaurant, on the edge of the inner city, an easy walk from the main station. Very nice traditional interior, lots of space. In the back is a courtyard that can be (partly) covered, behind that is the brewery. Altbier, plus Jung (a lighter version) and of course three times a year the Latzenbier, a stronger version. Recommended.

Excellent Altbier so nothing else needed if you’re a beer drinker rather than a ticker. The food is pretty good, although their Schweinehaxe doesn’t compare with that a Im Fuchschen. Although it is easier to collect your tick for Schuhmacher Alt at the Goldenen Kessel in Bolkerstrasse, this place merits a short hop on the U Bahn to Oststrasse.

I had a brief visit on June 2011. The place was crowded with locals enjoying the beer and nice atmosphere. I must say the Altbier was a bit too sweet for my taste. However, the place is still worth a short walk from the Altstadt.

Visited for lunch on Saturday March 13, 2010.
Had Eisbein for lunch, very tasty! Both the Alt and the Jung beers were very nice as well. Good service. Not too crowded on a fairly early Saturday.

This is the place to head when you arrive at the main railway station Dusseldorf Hbf. Predominately a resturant, it also has a small vertical drinking area to the left of the main entrance. When visitimg the toilets, have a peep outside at the impressive tower brewery to the rear of the building. The food is superb, easily the best of the town’s brewpubs. Many people in a rush miss out this pub as the same beer is available at the Goldener Kessel in the Altstadt, much more convenient for the other 3 classic brew pubs in town. I would suggest that it is well worth makimg the time to visit this place too, particularly to value the brew tower.
