German beer-makers are concerned about the impact of fracking on beer quality

That's fucking it......Now I am pissed.....

German brewers have sent a letter to various officials in Berlin to voice their concern that shale gas exploitation via fracking could endanger the water supply on which they depend, and thus violate the venerable "Beer Purity Law" (Reinheitsgebot) of 1516, the world's first food purity law. They ask the German government for guarantees that their high-quality water supply will be protected, something that the government has not done so far, they say.
