Alt Beer (Altbier) is a full beer that is brewed mainly in the region of the Lower Rhine. Secretly, however, Düsseldorf is the Alt-Beer Capital of Germany, since several traditional breweries are located in the city on the Rhine. Here the Alt-Beer is tapped directly from the barrel and served in small, usually 0.2 liter glasses.

Alt-Beer

Altbier, the name of the Altbier comes from the traditional or traditional brewing process after Altbier is produced. Like all beers brewed in Germany, Altbier is brewed according to the German Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot). Furthermore a police ordinance came from Düsseldorf in 1706 after brewers and beer taps had to ensure that the guest was only served a tasty and digestible beer. This means that when brewing the beer, only hops, malt, yeast and water may be used. The original wort content of Altbier is between 11 and 16 percent, and the alcohol content varies between 4 and 5%.
