For alt drinkers, this is mecca! During a trip to Germany I was lucky enough to visit this wonderful place. Located in the main "aldstadt" area you are confornted with a coner bar with some seating outside.

We choose inside seating and found a canarvous interior. Wood everywhere with large open halls and narrow bar areas abounding. The wait staff consisted of middle aged men that worked quickly. I had heard about slow service from these folks, but did not see it. Our wait staff was quick and spoke some service.

We did not have any food, but the mustard looked wonderful as you would expect from the area.

The beer...sublime! I have never had the chance to drink such a beer before. Having it on draft, served by a proffesional, in a spot that has a lot of history, is more then words can describe.

Must visit!

First stop on my alt tour in Dusseldorf.

I wanted to try one alt form the several breweries in Dusseldorf, and we stood outside next to one of the kegs to have one. Two magnificent beers later, we paid our tab and we ventured inside to look at the place. Lots of small rooms and quaint seating. I used the facilities (clean and adequate) and I met up with my friend who had two pieces of pork burgers dropped by a waiter. Just as I was to take my first bite, another waiter came by with more alt. Such beauty.

If I didn't have the agenda to try 3 other places that afternoon, I would have surely stayed there. A must stop if in Western Germany.

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.

Zum Ueriges is one of the must go to's for all altbier lovers.

It is a lovely looking oldtime brewpub on the corner of Bergstraße. I visited in summer and night and day, there was outside seating running down the side of the pub and every table was always full - a real bustling atmosphere. .Across the street are beer garden style tables and benches so you can drink under the shade of the trees which was welcome in the hot summer weather.

Going inside the pub, the drinking space is divided into small rooms and alcoves with wooden tables and dark wooden furniture,The decor very traditional with pictures of old time dusseldorf. Sometimes you had to look quite hard for a table but room could always be found. I found the locals quite happy to share a table and chat with you and dusseldorf and their famous bier and what you thought of it.

Once you get a seat, the blue apron clad Kobes (waiters) are patroling their designated rooms, with trays of delicious alt. You just have to grab their attention and ask for a beer, they mark your coaster to tally how many beers you have had each time you ask for another, then settle up at the end.

The waiters are interesting to watch as they walk around with their trays, or loading up new casks from the cellars. They are entertainment in themselves

Uerige only sells 2 types of bier - the alt or the weizen, there are the seasonal specials such as the sticke and doppelsticke. Only offered on the third Tuesday in January and October - a treat to savour.

As far as food goes - its very traditional, i only sampled the bar snacks leberwurst and a crusty roll, and gouda cheese. The leberwurst is recommended as a pairing with the alt. Specialties include a knuckle of pork and a special pea soup.

Overall Ueriges is a real treat for alt lovers. The traditional atmosphere, good food and good bier make this a place to remember and the friendly locals make it a place to hold special in your heart. You will always want to come back.

Amazing place, sat in a smoke-filled room in the back with views of the copper pots. Beer is amazingly fresh as every few minutes someone would take an elevator down and roll in a fresh keg to the bar. Great service with a fresh beer being delivered to your table before you ask and just as you are finished. Was pretty empty when we were there, but on a Friday night the crowd was all around the building and on the opposite side of the street. Clearly a local favorite.

An absolutely awesome place to drink a few alts.

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).
