I  was already pretty strongly opposed to fracking... but this  goddamn
serious

If there are two things Germans have  traditionally loved, it's purity and
beer. Now, according to a German  brewers
association<http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/energy/oilandgas
/10076467/Fracking-could-ruin-German-beer-industry-brewers-tell-Angela-Merke
l.html>,
both  are at risk because of a potential law that would legalize fracking in
the  country.

A 500-year-old beer purity law called the "Reinheitsgebot" is  apparently at
stake. The "Reinheitsgebot" states that German brewers can  only produce
beer using malt, hops, yeast and water. The chemicals produced  by fracking
could, according to the Brauer-Bund beer association, pollute  water in the
underground wells used by some  breweries.
