Beer Day in Bavaria

On 23 April, the focus in Bavaria is firmly on beer. On this day more than 500 years ago, the Beer Purity Law was passed in Bavaria, which ever since has safeguarded the quality of the region's 'national drink'. To mark the occasion, many Bavarian breweries will be open to visitors and restaurants will be offering special menus themed on beer. The festivities will be opened by the new beer queen Barbara Hostmann.
