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 Spuyten Duyvil 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.
