Cheers on the road

Darlington-based Cheers – and beer – enthusiast Ian Jackson has contributed another photo from a recent visit to Germany. He visited Dūsseldorf and Köln, enjoying the native Altbier and Kölsch along with the rather hot weather.

Ian says: “The photo with the caricatures of the old people was taken in the Brauerei Zum Uerige on Bergerstrasse in Dusseldorf. Incidentally, one of the backrooms at the Zum Uerige was used briefly in filming one of the early episodes of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.

“I read about it in a guidebook as opposed to being told about it. I did explain to one of the waiters about people regularly taking copies of Cheers with them on holiday to take a photo – which he found rather amusing.”
