Did I forget to spellcheck the title of this post? No, just testing your German. Reinheitsgebot, which means "purity order", refers to the German Beer Purity Law of 1516. It stated that only water, barley, and hops could be used in the production of beer. Though the law was later repealed, it is still referenced in the marketing of many beers today.
