Keep Your Laws Out of My Beer!

Every so often I'm reminded to visit this charming little Web site that aims to break down much of the romanticism that seems to surround the so-called German "Beer Purity Law," the Reinheitsgebot:

"The Reinheitsgebot -- what a load of old bollocks"

Really, any respectful beer lover should be able to see right through this silly and hugely antiquated and inapplicable concept, which many German brewers, and some American ones (Gordon Biersch, for example) seize upon in an attempt to claim some kind of high ground when it comes to brewing.

Come on. Just brew your beer, and make sure it tastes good. That's about all I ask.
