History of German beers
The origin of beer in Germany dates back thousands of years. History places it in the 6th century BC; at that time some Germanic tribes that lived in the south of the country already consumed it. The first brewing company in the world did not arrive until the year 766; It was the monastery of St. Gallen in Geisingen, next to the bank of the Danube.
In the Middle Ages, hops began to be added to the formula of brewing beer. A curious fact is that in the sixteenth century Prince William IV approved the so-called "law of purity", which forced all breweries to use no more than four ingredients to make the drink. A law that extended throughout the German Empire in the year 1906.
