Wonderfully atmospheric multi-roomed pub. My friend and I sat in ’Der Uerige’, which is all stained glass windows and dark wood. We both had the pea soup (with a frankfurter on a side plate) which was delicious. The altbier, although not a favourite of mine, was the best of the four brewpubs we visited. If you only visit one pub in Dusseldorf, this is it.
Eye-opener Alt and Weizen beers at about 10am with a couple other fat Americans. Surly service, as is typical in Germany. Cheap beers, decent enough. Not really anything I would care to have again, though. Really cool place, though.
Another world classic; the best Alt in the world? Certainly one of the best. Here it is the wood that makes it good; barrels of alt flowing and being pulled up from the cellar. Food was ok; just had some beer snacks. Great atmosphere with people hanging out on the street outside. Top place to visit in town.
Quite the busy little place on a Saturday afternoon. As well as a Wednesday evening the last time I was there. Standing outside to enjoy the atmosphere and people, and beer. Grabbed the guy with the tray and got two beers for a nice little amount. Enjoyed watching everyone as I sipped the alt. Not much else in the way of selection, but I don’t come here to try and get a kölsch. I come for a decent beer.
Gigant outdoor serving area and a lovely dark brown interior. The waitors were much too busy at my visit on a hot summer friday afternoon. The selection consisted of their lovely alt and a somewhat boring weizen.
How do you rate the selection at a bar whose beer sets the simple standard than is never bettered. How should you rate the service at a place where three waiters lift each up-ended wooden cask to the bar counter after broaching? How can you rate the food in a bar where a pickled egg needs to be prepared with such precision before consumption or the minced raw porkand onion are just vehicles for the mustard? Seven rooms and an ever-growing outside zone. How do you rate unique and world tour standard?
