Reinheitsgebot literally means ”purity order” and is commonly referred to as the “German Beer Purity Law” or the “Bavarian Purity Law”. This is a regulation about the production of beer in the Holy Roman Empire and its successor state, Germany. The original text states the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer are water, barley and hops.
The law originated on 30 November 1487, when Albert IV the Duke of Bavaria promulgated it, specifying three ingredients – water, malt and hops – for the brewing of beer.
On 23 April 1516 in the city of Ingolstadt located in the duchy of Bavaria two other dukes endorsed the law as one to be followed in their duchies and added standards for the sale of beer.
The world’s oldest continuously operating brewery is the Weihenstephan Brewery in Bavaria.
The Weihenstephan Brewery can trace its roots at the abbey to 768, as a document from that year refers to a hop garden in the area paying a tithe to the monastery. A brewery was licensed by the City of Freising in 1040, and that is the founding date claimed by the modern brewery. The brewery thus has a credible claim to being the oldest working brewery in the world. (Weltenburg Abbey, also in Bavaria, has had a brewery in operation since 1050, and also known as “Corn Beer” claims to be the oldest brewery in the world.) When the monastery and brewery were secularised in 1803, they became possessions of the State of Bavaria.

After walking around the Chateau Fontainebleau I realized I had worked up a hunger and as I walked down an alley I saw this cool old fish stand. I bought 2 oysters. 1 was an expensive one and the other was a not quite as expensive one.
Oysters provide our bodies with protein, iron, omega 3 acids, calcium, zinc, vitamin C and contain no cholesterol.
They guy at the counter shucked them for me so all I had to do was open, squeeze lemons and eat.
Staff is friendly & the food is delicious. Go here!
The Brussel’s Bar located on the main street in Fontainbleau, 47 Rue Grande, is a perfect place for an afternoon snack and a beer.
The prices are seasonable, the food is good and it is the perfect way to take a moment to enjoy another day in France.
Hint: the french fries may be in the top 5 worldwide. They are that good!
Captain Croc – Paris, France

As I walked the 65 miles or so around town I could feel my energy getting lower.
I needed to eat and when in Rome you do as the romans so, in this case french,
I decided I needed wine with my lunch. The Captains Croc provided me with a
delicious plate of salmon pasta in cream sauce and some wine to help keep me going.
If you are in the area then I recommend you walk over and eat lunch here. You won’t be disappointed by the food, prices or friendly service.
