23 April

The Bavarian Beer Purity Law ("Reinheitsgebot") is a law that governs what ingredients can be used for beer made in Germany.

Many alcohol aficionados, particularly beer enthusiasts, will know about this already.

Even if you do know, though, do you know what are the three main ingredients originally allowed, and which was the fourth additional ingredient allowed in the late 1800s?

Two kinds of beer have special exemptions -- do you know which they are? CooksInfo.com does -- click the See Also below to find out.

And to recognize the day, why not raise a toast with a German-brewed beer?
