Beyond the Purity Law: Explore the diversity of German beer

Think German beer and you might think of lager and the "Purity Law," which was enacted 503 years ago on April 23, 1516. But there's a lot more to German brew than barley, hops and water!

Andre Gifkens and Robyn Anderson of the ironically named Berlin specialty shop and taproom Lager Lager have selected nine beers that illustrate the German beverage's broad spectrum. DW's Jefferson Chase tasted them to find out just how different brews can be.
