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 earliest documented mention of beer by a German nobleman is the granting of a brewing license by Emperor Otto II to the church at Liege (now Belgium), awarded in 974.
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.

followed. Good food served by good people.
- On May 1, 2014 I found my myself in
- Fontainbleau, France enjoying a holiday called May day. The only people who have to work on May day are the restaurant employees so I went to this bistro down the street from Napolean’s house called L’escapade and tried some rum from Martinique.
Staff is friendly & the food is delicious. Go here!
- Thank you / Merci L’escapade !

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
11 Rue Toullier 5 eme
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.
At the web site listed below you may find the information to the first sign I saw upon arriving in the Paris underground metro. Exiting the Métro at Place des Fêtes and having just left Santa Monica you can imagine the surprise this sign caught me by. I laughed and knew I must go check it out.
After traveling for 14 hours I was ready to drop my bags off, eat and wander around Paris. The pizzeria was closed so I didn’t eat there until the second night of my stay and found Ismail and the staff to be friendly and hospitable. Thank you.
