Do not miss Dusseldorf! This city is home to the true ALTBIER style, and
it is made far better here than anywhere else. My favorite stop is ZUM
URIEGE brewpub, in the Altstadt, which makes a stupefyingly great
altbier. Michael Jackson gives it four stars, and his description of Zum
Uriege in his "Pocket Guide to Beer" is mouthwatering.

I used the Jackson pocket guide as a beer tourguide to Germany - it
contains addresses and phone numbers of breweries, brew-pubs, and best of
all, brewery-hotels.

The best brewery-hotel I encountered was Hotel Hirsch in Ottoburen, which
has a swimming pool heated by the brew kettle. There are many others;
they are members of a brewery-hotel association, and you can get
a guidebook to their member establishments at any one of them.
