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