My favorite of the beer halls I visited in Dusseldorf. A large beer hall with distinct rooms that kept the noise down. Service was good and the alt was the only beer available on tap. The goulash I had was quite delicious and the prices were inline with the rest of beer halls around town.

This for me was the penultimate Dusseldorf altbier experience. I actually loved all the altbier places we visited (sorry but so much friendlier than Köln!) but Uerige was tops in all departments.
Went once for the regular altbier, and it was for sure the most woody and characterful in the city. Service was stellar.
Went the next day for Sticke day with Fred Waltman and the Sticke Warriors. The sticke was tasty. I would say Uerige is a must.This is up there with the world's classic beer cultures.

Visited September 2012 with chinoskillzian and womencantsail. Actually we visited twice but the first night they were just closing and wouldn’t serve us. So we got an eye opener on the way out of town. It was neat to see them tapping the wooden keg of alt. I think these guys are the only ones that make the doppelsticke year round, or at least make enough of it to be available year round. The server gave me attitude for asking to try something other than the alt. He was confused by my question and when I pointed out that there is a weizen on the menu he said that it was a weizen, not an alt. 99% sure he was just being an ass but I told him I wanted to try all their BEERS, and hefeweizen is a beer too. Maybe he was hung over from the night before, who knows. Anyway, the beers were all decent and I enjoyed the old timey wooden furnishings and decorations as well as watching all the beer trucks rolling through the cobblestone streets refilling the beer supply at the bars. I’d like to go back to Dusselfdorf some day during a doppelsticke day and when that happens I’ll make sure to stop back here.

May 2013. The second stop in Duesseldorf, and Uerige is one of the most atmospheric places where I have ever consumed a beer. Approaching on the street to a high top outdoor table, you can smell the malt and brewing aromas in the air. The area is shaded by trees and there are many locals early on friday afternoon. The waiter was less friendly than in many other places, but far from rude. A really great experience, and it is great they have a few beer options.

DIE Altbier-Institution in Düsseldorf! Am schönsten im Frühling und Sommer draußen vor der Tür 10 Uerige aufwärts genießen und dem Treiben der Schicki-Mickis zusehen. Hier ist jeder gleich, ob arm ob reich. Wer nicht im Uerige war auf Ddorf Tour, der war eigentlich nicht dort!

Had unfortunately some issues with this brewpub because I wanted to buy some special bottles and got send from one place to another ( from the normal brewpub to the underground area of Carsch House, from the Carsch House back to the brewpub and from the brewpub to their special room, the Stickum ) and when we have been finally at the Stickum ( opening times Fri / Sat: 2 pm) they told us, that they don’t sell bottles at all for taking away. Well, little bit stupid and confusing altogether, but at least they all were friendly. We didn’t want to take a drink at the normal brewpub because we didn’t feel welcomed at all (one waiter told us at the door that there’s no food except some sandwiches available at 11.30 am (!) and wouldn’t even want us to be inside at all). After some nos and yes’ we decided to go to the Stickum, which is just beneath the old brewpub rooms and we were really happy and feeling good there. The two waiters were really friendly and nice, and had a nice knowledge and told us -unasked- about the history of Doppelsticke and about the breweries rooms. The beers (Doppelsticke / Sticke) were just awesome and we are gonna try their own beer whiskey next time. Would go to the Stickum anytime again - but not to the normal brewpub rooms.

This place was packed when we went here. Inside was packed, street was packed and a band outside. Service was keeping up though, trays of Alt everywhere. The beer was great, the atmosphere probably helped but I’ve never had Alt like that. Can’t fault them too much for selection just because it’s an Alt town. Somewhere around 2 euro per glass I think with is not bad. Very cool experience.

A legendary brew pub. Many beer critics say this is the best place in the world to drink Altbier which is all served from wooden barrels. The quailty has made me mark up "selection" and "overall". They also do their own hefeweiss, which I,ve only seen in bottle form. The building ouzes with character and there are 2 or 3 drinking rooms and if the weather is good people spread out onto the pavement. A must in your life time visit.

The best of the brewpubs as it has the nicest outdoor area and their Alt beer can be seen being tapped from wooden kegs. Probably the nicest alt beer too

Beautiful interior with lots of rooms all with wooden furniture. Service is mediocre and some of the staff are quite rude. Is it so unreasonable to ask if they have their Weizen available or if the driver in our group could have water or a soft drink?
Altbier is €1.90 per 200ml
