This year Germany celebrates the 500 year anniversary of Reinheitsgebot, also known as the “German Bier Purity Law”. According to the medieval food-safety law, the only ingredients that could be used in the production of bier were water, barley, and hops. At the time, yeast had not yet been discovered. The law intended to keep bier “pure” of cheap and often unhealthy ingredients, such as poisonous roots, mushrooms, animals products, and sawdust. It also prevented the use of chemicals, preservatives, and artificial process enhancers. Modern changes and exceptions have since been made to the law.
