On a German Beer Trail Evan Rail travels in search of Germany's local heroes. "I wanted to try those German brews that had maintained a sense of local flavor, beers that were produced in their hometowns and, more or less, nowhere else."
Why the Reinheitsgebot is a load of old bollocks My personal view on the German beer purity law. As you may be able to guess from the title, I'm not one of its greatest fans. I present a series of detailed, reasoned arguments why it works against the interests of the real beer lover. Well, that's what I say - there is, as usual, a fair amount of frothing at the mouth inbetween the odd rational outburst. I attempt to analyse and expose brewing's greatest myth. I don't expect that it will please everyone who reads it.
The Trouble with German Beer Do you think that Germany is the beer-drinker's paradise on earth? Do you believe that the Reinheitsgebot guarantees that only beer of the highest quality is produced in Germany? Do you think that the 1200 or so breweries in the country provide unparalleled diversity? Do you think that the moon is made of blue cheese? Well I certainly don't. I'll explain why.
Old German Beer Styles A quick glance at the Germany's lost (and forgotten) beer tradition. Or, when Germans brewed like Belgians.
German Beer Statistics A few figures concerning the German brewing industry - total annual production,number of breweries - the type of thing to set obsessives like me polishing their shoes with their tongue.
