Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Here is all you need to know about this beer, if nothing else...they are the "World's Oldest Brewery."  But don't stop there.  It proves the age old axiom that "...practice makes perfect." 

This Brauhaus has been at it since before the German Purity law of 1516.  How long?  The Weihenstephener (easier to say after sampling several of their brews) Brauerei has been practicing since 1040 !  That is remarkable.  So how's the beer you say?  Well, their dedication to craft delivers a crisp, light and delicious beer like no other.  You can read more about it on their website, in the language of your choice.  This beer is enjoyed the world over.  You should enjoy it too.
