My first day in Europe brings a day planned in Dusseldorf. Sure, I may be jetlagged and trying to adjust to the nine hour difference, but my excitement acts as a natural stimulate. All I want is a beer, and somebody in the old part of Dusseldorf will provide. Walk around, get confused about the street layout...I'm closing in on something. It says...Uerige. Woo hoo, objective complete!
History and character all over the place. Old walls and tables, wooden barrels spread around the glass, multiple rooms with different lighting and different numbers of seating. Only a handful of patrons inside as I walked in just after 11am, but by noon, the place was busting. Ok, so how do I order?
All you need to do is sit down and wait for a waiter to automatically bring you a 200 ml glass of the house altbier. Speak some English sir? Yes sir, and we have an English menu. Open the menu, explore the simple and inexpensive dishes. Mmm, bacon and bread sound good with the delicius alt (one that's much better fresh at the source than bought in California). Food comes out quick, but why is my bacon uncooked? This must be how its served. Eat it....I'm making a yummy noise.
I'm ready to change after several rounds of alt, which the waiters continue to bring to your seat automatically until you signal them to stop. Let's try the house weizen, the other beer available at Uerige. The weizen is alright, but the alt is where it's at. €1.90 per 200 ml of alt, and €2.90 per pour (larger size) of the weizen.
A classic altbier establishment which beer lovers should certainaly stop at.

Bring your camera if you visit Uerige, also bring extra money for souveniers for your friends, family and co-workers not fortunate enough to make the trip.
You will not have to wait to be served beer here, period.
You may need to fight for adequate seating if you stop by at a busy time, like most quality places in Duesseldorf. This will be your biggest worry while here.
Anything off the menu is tasty and the beer is fresh and proudly served.
Try to get lost inside the catacombs of this joint and your adventures will truly begin.

I stopped here with two colleagues from the UK during a business trip to Dusseldorf. We were looking to eat there but the place was packed (there was a huge trade show in town). So we settled with a spot outside to drink a few glasses before heading off to another alt pub for dinner.
They serve their own alt bier of course, and it happens to be in my top 2 of the style. It helps that it's widely available in the states, but after trying so many of them at the source I can say that Uerige is slightly hoppier and more flavorful in general (to my tastes).
The brewpub is not as big as Schlusser but still adequate size for a normal evening, it has the look of an authentic old beer hall. Lots of wood, beautiful windows, and prompt service (even outside). Glasses are replaced quickly. We didn't try the food but I saw it and it looks similar to what's available at all the alt pubs (which is fantastic, honestly).
