According to the bar itself, this is the one with the largest choice of beers; yet they don’t choose very well; too many similar beers, too many beers that are there just because it’s funny to have a beer from Perù, and not enough attention for the growing German microbrewery scene (apart from one Camba Bavaria and two Propeller, and a couple of Austrians). Helpful and friendly service.

Last night was my second visit to Finkenkrug. They have 20+ taps and a lot of bottles and like pivnizub below mentioned not a whole lot for a very experienced taster as far rarities. They do have enough classic beers though and I had Schneider Hopfen-Weisse from the bottle and Schneider Aventinus from the tap both of which are great. They also have Orval as well which is a great treat. The burgers and pommes were very tasty. It was a pretty busy Saturday night with music playing and a friendly vibe.

Students’ pub in the eastern suburbs of Duisburg, one "classical" tap-room plus an adjoining light winter-garden-like room; almost incredible - by german standards - selection, 20 taps and over 100 bottles…, but the experienced beer-hunter will not find here too many rarities; the waitresses are friendly, do not seem to know much about the beers they serve. Worth a detour, by all means!

Didn’t expect such a pub in Duisburg at all, found it only through ratebeer. Most noteworthy for the very large selection of beers available (21 regular + 2 changing taps and more than 200 bottles). The offer includes German and foreign beers that range from outstanding to awful and are brewed by very small to industrial-scale breweries. So you need to chose wisely, it might take some time to go through the beer menu and pick the gems (it’s online, you can check before going). Ambiance was ok, though I hated having to walk through the smoking section to reach one of the quieter smoke-free rooms. Prices are very reasonable, though of course higher than what the average German is used to paying for a random local beer. Staff was very friendly, attentive and fast. Food was ok, nothing fancy.

Very pleasant visit. Found this place thru ratebeer.com and decided to drop by. Was very quiet at 18-19 on saturday, but started packing up pretty fast. No music, just a TV showing football. Staff at the moment was very nice and also spoke english. They also seem to sell beer to go. Haven’t found a similar beer oriented pub in Ruhrgebiet.

What a great place for the Ruhrgebiet! Not too far from the Hauptbahnhof, about a 15 minutes walk in the opposite direction of the city center. 20 taps and 200 bottles available. Most beers are from Beers of the World in Essen, but there are some gems available. I had the Schloss Eggenberg Urbock 23 and the quite delicious Schneider Aventinus Eisbock, served for only € 3,50.
Smoky, but friendly service. A must if you visit ugly Duisburg.

A bit loud and smoky, depending on the time. Patio in good weather. Nice tap selection and bottles, too. Recommend the spaghetti mit kase uberbacken. Where I had my first Rochefort, in 1993. Not much has changed by 2004, except for the prices.
