German beer variety
A good beer is generally not alone
With their outstanding brewing instincts and delight in innovation, German brewers have managed to take the ingredients prescribed in the purity law – water, malt, hops and yeast – and create a diversity of varieties and brands that is unique in the world. In Germany there are over 1200 breweries, which together produce around 5000 different beers: A true paradise for all beer-lovers who, in theory, could spend more than 13.5 years in Germany sampling and enjoying a new beer every day!
You can find more information about varieties of German beer in the “Vielfalt geniessen” (“Enjoy diversity”) brochure from the German Brewers Association.
