Well if there’s one thing we’ve all grown custom too while living in Düsseldorf, it’s the excessive beer drinking in public spaces. Spring is almost around the corner and it’s time to embrace our beer drinking habits at the best breweries in Düsseldorf!
Here are 5 Home Breweries in Düsseldorf That We Must Try Out This Year:
Uerige is in the center of the Altstadt located just a walk away from the Rhein River. It is a craft brewery made here in Düsseldorf and they offer public tours for those interested. The beer is delicious (I think) and made of caramel malt, roasted malt, barley, hops, water and their special Uerige yeast.
While I still can’t properly pronounce the name, the Füchschen Alt Brewery is located on Ratinger Straße in Düsseldorf. While they’re well known for the locally brewed Alt Bier, the pork knuckle (haxe) is a close second. The best part about this place… they serve breakfast!
The Brauerei Kürzer is a hot place to be on the weekends for those who love to party in the Altstadt. They also run the bar next door so that you can keep the night young. They pour their beer fresh from the tap so that you can try a little bit of their Düsseldorf tradition.
Brauerei Schumacher Alt is located at the Stammhaus on Oststraße in Düsseldorf. Their tradition will never grow old. If you’re looking for a very traditional Germany restaurant to take your friends and family, Schumacher has quite a hearty menu.
Well, their location is prime – right on the bar street of the city (Bolker Straße). If you’re planning on joining in on some fun here, make sure you’re prepared for crowds. Zum Schlüssel offers guided tours of the brewery for 10 Euros a person (prices subject to change) which includes two glasses of beer and an exploration through the historical times of the brewery.
Now, it’s your turn! If you’ve been living in Düsseldorf for a while, make sure you leave a comment in the section below on which one is the best place to be!
