German Beer

German Beer

Germany is a proud brewing country. The Reinheitsgebot, commonly known as the German Purity law, has enshrined in their brewing practices the notion of quality above all else. This essentially means that all traditional German beer is brewed without additives. They only use the 4 base beer ingredients – Hops, Malt, Water, Yeast. Yet using just these four ingredients (and some wheat sometimes of course) they have made some of the best beer in the world. While the Germans themselves are obsessed with wheat beer, Germany is still regarded as the home of lager and is yet to be beaten for taste in this widely imitated style. Except maybe by the Czechs. Each area of Germany has its own take in the styles from the sweeter Munich beers and their huge Oktoberfest, to the Black Forest and it's dryer variations. Oktoberfest of course is its own unique thing. As beer festival with one beer, it is more of a celebration of drinking and remains unpretentious and fun to this day. All this tradition is not to say the Germans aren't making new and interesting craft brewers with more people coming out everyday and evolving German beer to become more modern and using more hops in different ways. German beer is still a standard bearer and conisdered a mark of Quality around the world
