Exploring Alt Stadt Beers

German Beermats

Back from a pre-stag stag, if you can call it that, exploring some of the local breweries in Dusseldorf and Cologne including Uerige, Zum Schlussel and what was one of the favourites of the weekend, Schumacher’s, all in Dusseldorf’s old town area.

The keepsakes, and thus allowing you to keep count of the beers consumed, are the beermats themselves, the process being that your beer server will place a tick on your beermat with every beer dropped to your table. I’ll have more of a recap on Any Given Food during the week.

Trying a couple of things here including a test with the Canon Powershot G15, a review of which is going online in the next fortnight over on Any Given Food (tool of the trade, don’t you know).

I’ve also rediscovered a set of Photoshop filter actions that I picked up in the last year via MightyDeals.com, so expect to see some heavily filtered shots in the pipeline.

RSAG (Rarely Seen Above Ground) played an absolute stormer on the final night of this year’s Kilkenny Arts Festival. He performed at the festival back in 2009 as the first live act in the venue but the performance last Sunday night was the best I’ve seen him in a few years.

Before the video comes out, here’s some select snaps…
