CBS Sunday News aired a really cool segment yesterday on how American beer is beginning to enter into and change the German beer landscape. Touching on how important beer is to Germany in both culture and tourism we also learn the industry has began to flag with a younger generation turning more towards mixed drinks. In comes American Greg Koch of Stone Brewing and local craft breweries like Vagabund Brauerei who are challenging conventional brewing and Germanys Rehienstegebot beer purity law. Greg Koch of Stone is featured in the 2nd half of the more than five minute long segment and its mentioned that their may even be a challenge to his planned Stone Brewery in Berlin based on the purity law. It’s a surprisingly good little piece on craft beer in mainstream major news.
