I'm sure there are some good stores you could drive too just like me, who sell various beers. But they are pricey to say the least.

I pay $2.00+ per bottle.

God this is getting exciting. It looks more and more like people are seriously taking matters into their own hands. By some of bigger business's leading the way, it will help the unsure small business and individuals put their foot down and take a stand.

I also agree that this is exciting, if only if it were on a larger scale. But it is nice to see people taking matters into their own hands and this may apply pressure on other companies to do the same. I am afraid to get my hopes up too high though due to the power and tricks that corporations and their affiliations possess to put an end to this type of change in consciousness....perhaps they will find an excuse to deem these non GMO ingredients unsafe?

Nice Oettinger... when I was young and could not afford good beer, I always drank this one... and Hansa.

But now, I am older and I can finally buy some beer which tastes better, Oettinger does not taste that bad, but there are way better beers.

btw. fyi Oettinger is arround 7-9$ for 20* 0,5L bottles which is really cheap and it tastes ok. best for young people who want to get drunk. premium beer is arround 16-19$

Mmmmm.

I rediscovered my love of beer a few years ago when i found a little biergarten that had beautiful dark beer on tap.

Kostritzer, Warsteiner, Paulner, Spaten.....ah the list goes on.

Nothing like sitting down to a good schnitzel and bier. or maybe some rouladen!!!!!

I rather expected the Bier Law to come into play (or at least hoped).

Good on my kinsmen!!!!!

gott mit uns!

Warsteiner


Warsteiner was good arround 7 years ago, now it tastes like water... somehow like a light beer. You should try Krombacher or Veltins
but the other ones you listed are really tasty

We have been changing our crops by selective breeding for thousands of years. The foods and plants you think of as "natural" are not the original plants. They have been radically altered by man. The difference is that now, we can change them directly. Of course changing plants or animals has the POTENTIAL to be dangerous. Many technological advances have the potential to be dangerous. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be used. It does mean that certain technologies need to be carefully monitored, like nuclear power or genetic engineering. And they are being monitored. But as there are huge advantages to GM crops, we're going to have GM crops; those that are approved by the FDA. Don't think you can hold back the future.

A 0.5 liter glas bottle of Öttinger costs around 40ct in Germany, which is considered cheap since other brands cost a lot more.
In genearal, europeans don't want GM crops, because the logic to make one one single genetic line of plants, resistant against Monsantos Round Up and literally give the copyright to them, is nuts.

Nobody or no company especially Monsanto (DDT, Agent Orange) should have a copyright on selling seeds of a key cereal like Wheat, Corn or Rice.

They want to aquire a monopoly on certain seeds, to dictate the price for it.

Over the years the targeted, unwanted insects or plants will mutate and render the whole system of resistant seed + chemical useless.

Why change a system which worked for thousands of years and give on single company the right to decide?


I'm looking forward to the American European Trade Pact, which sure will be heavily discussed in Europe as soon as GMO come to speech.

Its sad that we have to buy beer at 2$ a bottle and still not be completely sure about GM. I usually drink higher end microbrews and notice I get headaches on the cheap stuff. Hence I have totally started avoiding the light cheap stuff. Wonder if it is the GM or some other kind of ingredient.. Anyone know what beers are GM free and affordable?

Reinheitsgebot has absolutely nothing to do with GM ingredients, nor quality beer. They had to amend the reinheitsgebot when they discovered what yeast was. So you had people making rules for beer, that didn't even understand beer. Make sense?

Germany makes some great beers, but their isn't a lot of variety or complexity with specific beers. Belgians, which don't abide by any sort of purity law, make some of the most incredible and complex beers available.

And of course, American craft breweries make some of the best beer in the world, and there are more quality styles that come from America than the rest of the world combined.

Don't worry, TDawgRex.

If you only drink german beer, it's difficult to push your blood acohol levels over 0.2%/vol

chill.

Beer can bring world peace

Brew can do it.



When I worked in Bavaria, It was how every workplace dispute was solved..

Peacefully and respectfully over a bottle of beer.

Never a Fight.
