    Brauerei Schumacher: worth a little walk

    sorry for the web pic but I was in a rush!

    Schumacher’s main location is a bit apart from the Old Town and is in fact closer to the train station. It is a beautiful dark wood traditional pub that I finally made it to on my most recent visit to Dusseldorf. There is a smaller pub on Bolkerstrasse for those not willing to make the pilgrimage but for those with the time it is well worth the small effort.

    Favorite Dish: Schumacher makes one of the city’s drier alts which makes for a “can’t get enough” experience that was made worse by my short allotted time in the pub. You see, we were on a short layover from Dresden back to Florida. Most people would while away the hours in the airport lamenting the schedule and bored stiff. But with no decent alt in sight I decided to make a mad dash for the city center and this great brewpub. We only had about an hour to kill once there but it was enough time for three beers and a small snack. They were out of both metthappen (raw pork on a roll) and tartarhappen (raw beef on a roll) so I opted for a Frikadelle (the forerunner to a hamburger) served oddly without a roll but quite tasty. I could have stayed for hours but then I’d have missed my plane back home! Forgive my forgetting to take a photo but hey, I was a bit rushed!

    Their stronger beer is called Latzenbier rather than Sticke and is only served on the 3rd Thursday in March, September and November.

    Walk with the river back along Bolker Strasse and before arriving at the end look at your left for a building with gold word SCHUMAKER. Here you can taste the traditional ALT beer (tipical of this city) with food as RHEINISCHER STIELMUSEINTOPF (very good!)
