BERLIN — German brewers have warned Chancellor Angela Merkel's government that any law allowing the controversial drilling technique known as fracking could damage the country's cherished beer industry. The Brauer-Bund beer association is worried that fracking for shale gas, which involves pumping water and chemicals at high pressure into the ground, could pollute water used for brewing and break a 500-year-old industry rule on water purity.

Star an Flag for you brother!
Wouldn't it be shameful if all it took to stop fracking was due to beer? Just a thought. I'm mostly Czech so I love my beer, afterall, Czechs are the biggest consumers of the nectar of the Gods.
