Düsseldorf Alt beer culture: Zum Schlüssel

In the heart of the Düsseldorf Old Town (Altstadt), the traditional brewery “Zum Schlüssel“ has been extending an invitation to cosy get-togethers and just feeling good for more than 160 years. This has made it to a symbol for the Düsseldorf Alt beer culture. Enjoyment and quality are of great importance. Both, the managing director and the master brewer are certified beer sommeliers. The brewing process itself, which has taken place manually according to old methods of top-fermenting for many decades now, is supervised by the master brewer personally. The extraordinary mild taste of Original Schlüssel is created by using selected, whenever possible local, ingredients. The speciality of the Düsseldorf Alt beer scene has already been awarded twice for this reason: In 2012 and in 2014, Schlüssel received the gold medal at the European Beer Star Award. You can simply taste the devotion put into this brewing skill.
