A large and brightly-lit two-room affair not far from the main station, Schumacher has a taproom at the front with high seating and a large L-shaped room with tables to the rear. Even on a Monday night the atmosphere was buzzing.

Beer is the house Alt, made in the brewery out back and served, of course, on gravity from a wooden cask. Service is friendy and the food is decent too.

Unusually, a lighter "Jong" is offered alongside the Alt, but it's best to keep things traditional.

You can't really visit Düsseldorf without visiting the four Altstadt pubs (Schumacher, Uerige, Füchschen and Schlüssel) and while Uerige is the most well-known in the U.S. (thanks in large part to their Sticke Alt--and the fact that they're the only one that exports to the U.S.) I got the impression that Schumacher is just as well-respected with the locals. I had the good fortune to go there on Latzenbier Day, when they serve their extra-strong Alt (their version of Uerige's Sticke). It gets so crazy later in the evening on Latzenbier Day that they actually take most of the decorations off of the wall. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful, spacious pub with lots of hardwood.

It's really unfair to rate a Düsseldorf pub by selection, as everybody's there for the Alt so I'm rating "Beer Selection" based on the quality of their one beer. Schumacher's is what I would consider the standard-bearer for the style. Crisp with just a hint of esters, dry but rich with Munich malt, and a bracing but never overpowering noble hop bitterness.

We didn't enjoy a full meal there (so I won't numerically rate their food), but the snacks we had were excellent. Their mustard is just as worth a visit as their Altbier is. But, simply put, you gotta go for the Altbier.
