Reinheitsgebot 500th Anniversary

Saturday, April 23

reinheitsgebot On April 23, 1516 the law known at Reinheitsgebot or the Bavarian Purity Law was enacted across a unified Bavaria. This law stated that beer could only be brewed with barley, hops and water (yeast was added later when it was discovered). This law is still in place today and makes it one of the first and definitely the longest lasting food regulation in history. It is also one of the primary laws that defines what German beer is today.
