Düsseldorf is famous for its dark top-fermented Altbier, which has been brewed and served here for centuries. However, brewers not only on the Rhine but all over the world produce beer specialties in a wide variety of styles and flavors. We have put together a list of local dealers for that special hop pleasure.

Brewtique Beer Store

A classic Pale Ale or a complex Imperial Stout? At Brewtique in Pempelfort, you'll find a constantly changing selection of creative craft beers from breweries in Germany and abroad. Some beers are offered in a bundle sorted by brewery or style, so you can easily try them out.

Real Düsseldorf Alt

Düsseldorf is an Altbier stronghold. The dark beer variety with the bitter, tangy aroma is brewed strictly according to the Purity Law. Six breweries, namely Schumacher Alt, Uerige, Brauerei Kürzer, Füchschen Alt, Schlüssel Alt and Gulasch Alt produce the refreshing drink directly in Düsseldorf. It is served in the parent breweries, but also in many restaurants and pubs, as well as sold in specialty beverage stores.

The perfect quartet: Die Toten Hosen and Düsseldorf, the Altstadt and Alt beer. Even if you think it doesn't get any better than this, a fifth has crept in. The Hosen Hell.

After all, in their opinion, the best Altbier already exists in the form of the Uerige. Who has not yet tried it: You can find Hosen Hell in the band's own online store and, of course, at the Uerige!
