In Praise of Government

Is there a greater, more superb execution of legislation than German Rheinheitsgebot Law of 1516? Me thinks not.
First outlined in 1487, the German law of beer purity ensured that all beers brewed and sold in Bavaria adheared to strict standards. Certain ingredients were restricted, A few accepted. While some will say the law stiffled competition and innovation, I say it established the roadmap for what today we enjoy as the finest of lagers and pilsners. When thirst calls I'll be sure to grab an ice cold bottle of goverment endorsed refreshment! More on the Rheinheitsgebot

A few of my favorite law-obiding beers:
Hofbrauhaus Oktoberfest
Hacker Pschor Weiss
Augustiner Dunkles

I think we need a Rheinheitsgebot for BLT's!
