German Brewing Treasure Saved!


Weltenburg AbbeyAs I was watching NBC Nightly News yesterday, one item stood out that I knew that I had to share.

The 1400 year old Benedictine Abbey in Weltenburg, Germany escaped damage to "its famous church, full of Baroque masterpieces, and even worse, the jewel that attracts many of the Abbey’s half million visitors a year: its beer."

Yes, O lovers of that precious fluid, Weltenburg Beer seems safe. This has to be especially good news for many in Germany, since Weltenburg has become one of that nation's most popular brews.
