A tailor-made tour through Düsseldorf’s historical Old Town, The Tasteful Craft of Draft will help you to uncover one of the city’s most important traditions: Altbier (traditional German beer). 

The experience will take you behind the scenes of several of the city’s most popular local breweries, as well as a couple of newer, more innovative ones, where you will be introduced to the master brewers, who will share more details on the various tastes of different beers and the crucial role of beer in German society. 
 


The name ‘Zum Schlüssel’ means ‘The Keys,’ and originates from the custom to keep the keys for the town gates in the nearby public houses.

The final stop on the tour will be ‘Zum Schlüssel’, which was established as a local German brewery and bakery in 1850 by Jakob Schwenger. The name ‘Zum Schlüssel’ means ‘The Keys,’ and originates from the custom to keep the keys for the town gates in the nearby public houses. Today, the brewery is owned by Karl-Heinz Gatzweiler, who has almost 40 years of personal experience in the brewing industry – the Gatzweiler family have been perfecting the art of brewing since 1313.

During The Tasteful Craft of Draft, the Brewery Master will join you for a local meal, where he will share his knowledge on this booming German tradition and more information on how the ‘Original Schlüssel’ is made; the skill used during the brewing process gives this beer a very inimitable and distinctive touch, which makes it a popular specialty among the top-fermented beers of Düsseldorf.
