Anyone remeber the episode, where Magnum describes "Old Dusseldorf?" I think it was something along the lines of, an old style German beer, brewed in Maryland (presumably from his Annapolis days). Hard to find on the islands...

I want to say it was in the first couple of seasons??

Funny to hear that he talked especially about old beer from Duesseldorf.

I live in that region, and can tell you, that it is a strong dark beer with a very unique taste.

There are in fact several companies which brew this beer-but it is only (I thought) popular in the region of northrine westfalia.

Most popular oldbeers in Germany are:

Schloesser Alt, Schumacher Alt, Gatz ( From the Gatzweiler Brewery)
Frankenheim Alt, only to name some.

If you ever go to germany, you should try it....but be careful, there is more alcohol inside than in a Millers or Coors.


Funny thing is also, that there is a little war between Duesseldorf and Cologne about which city brews the best beer. In fact, these two towns are nearly neighbours.

Means as much as that It is better for you, not to order an old beer in
Cologne, and you shouldn´t try to order a Koelsch (which is the the Cologne-beer) in Duesseldorf.


I hope I could help a bit...

Greets, Morten

I guess there was a song in Germany, mostly sung at "Bierfests", can`t remember it all, but it goes something like "there is no beer in Hawaii, there is no beer, that`s why we drink it here, our beer, we drink it here..."



Heh. I wonder if this song is closely related to the polka song that we sing here in Wisconsin:

In heaven there is no beer
That's why we drink it here
And when we're gone from here
All our friends will be drinking all the beer

IslandHopper76, he isn`t talking about beer from Duesseldorf, he said the beer is named "Old Duesseldorf" and was brewed in Maryland. So maybe it`s like "Hannen Alt" or some other of that kind, or maybe not.

Carmen -- when I read your post about the "no beer in Hawaii" song, I had the same reaction as Grapeshot did -- it sounds a lot like a polka called "In Heaven there is no beer".

But Heaven, paradise, Hawaii -- pretty much all the same, huh? :wink:

These songs are so very pretentious all over the world *VBG* Guess we all can sing our own version together and nobody would notice any difference

Ahhh . . . I found another Old Dusseldorf thread.

I say a dark beer in color, but not heavy in flavor, more on the bitter side, but not too strong.
