Strange beer names that inspire empty mugs
When it was originally enacted in 1516, the Bavarian Purity Law stated that beer should only contain water, hops and barley. It’s a simple recipe that hasn’t changed much through the years.

Some spend millions on slick advertising, while others pay a king’s ransom to athletes to pimp their beer. But for smaller breweries, it’s not that easy.
