    ...to the Reinheitsgebot.
    The Bavarian Beer Purity law turns 500 on Saturday. The 1516 law only allows water, barley and hops to be used in the production of beer.
    I'll definitely celebrate with some Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, or Ayinger.
    Fans of German brew out there? What is your favorite?

    I was in Germany for work a few years ago and some of my local colleagues got me into Bitburger, Jever, and Flensburger.

    Jever was my Dad's favorite beer.

    For those interested, Weihenstephaner released a Kellerbier called 1516 in honor of the beer purity law. I gave it a try and it was pretty darn good. They carried it in Total Beverage, but I'm not sure who still has it in supply.
