Episode 90: Germany’s Beer Wars: Is it time to bid “Auf Wiedersehen” to the purity law? Common Ground Berlin
#Beer is a staple of German culture and in partnership with the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation, host Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson and senior producer Dina Elsayed explore the debate over the restrictive “#Reinheitsgebot” or purity law that beers in Germany are expected to abide by versus popular #craft beers by brewers eager to try new things. Adding to tensions is that brewers in Germany are struggling with declining consumption and rising costs. Join our team for this exciting episode that takes us to pubs in Berlin and the original German brewery, located outside #Munich and still run by monks!
