Im Füchschen Altbier Launch at Spuyten Duyvil

Where:  Spuyten Duyvil, 359 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn
When:  6pm onwards

At long last, after many years of trying, we're extremely pleased to be bringing in the classic Düsseldorf Altbier from Im Füchschen

Please join Alex Foschi from the brewery and us on Wednesday for their NYC launch.

Brewing in the same location since 1640, Brauerei Im Füshschen is one of 5 remaining traditional altbier brewpubs in the old town of Düsseldorf.

Altbier ("old-style beer") is an historic, top-fermented dark ale which survived the 19th century Pilsner revolution and is thought to be the world's oldest continuously-brewed local style.

Brewed from the same recipe since 1848, Füchschen Alt is recognized as a world-classic.  It's copper colored with a rounded but not overpowering bready, nutty, and toasty maltiness balanced perfectly by its delicate but lasting spicy hop bitterness.  Cool fermentation and cold lagering give it a characterfully restrained yeasty fruitiness.

  1. I happened to be lucky that my friend couldn't find a date for an event so he generously took me with him, which happened to be one of the best experience for me in recent times. I was lucky enough to see party halls in Boston MA. If you get a chance to check this out please do so.
