Of all the things Germany is famous for, from castles to high quality cars and sausages, the most outstanding product by far is our beer. Of course other countries are well known for their brews as well – but anyway – Germany houses an unique beer culture. No other nation has a purity law for beer or as many different breweries. About 80% of all the breweries within the European Union are in Germany! In some areas there is a brewery in every village. Small towns can easily host 2 or 3. The city of Aufsess holds a world record: 4 breweries for 1500 inhabitants, 1 for only 375 people. Most of the breweries do different kinds of beer, some are common while others can be found only in certain areas or in single cities. And our per capita consumption is still among the highest in the world. Only the Czech people drink more beer than the Germans.

Sadly, this small town beer-producing culture is threatened. Big industrial companies are taking over, smaller breweries are dying. But you can still find them if you know where to go, and we are willing to share our knowledge of beer with you. We will show you the great variety of our beer culture.

- Visit different breweries, big industrial as well as local (family run) low tech manufacturers. Some are even too small to bottle their beer; the only place to drink it is the brewery pub!
- See the production of the raw materials, especially the hops farming. Germany has some of the best hops areas in the world. German hops are exported all over the world.
- Learn about the connection between monks and beer in a monastery brewery.
