Verbotene Fruchte

For over 500 years the _Reinheitsgebot_ has dictated that German brewers can only make beer using barley, hops, water and yeast. But what happens when German brewers go on holiday? Brewed in collaboration with legendary German brewers from _Bitburg_, *Verbotene Früchte* is a rich, black dessert lager inspired by the classic cakey goodness of the _Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte_ or Black Forest gâteau and brewed with a lavish amount of sugar, lactose, cacao powder, vanilla, cacao nibs and sour cherries. We counted at least seven contraventions of _Reinheitsgebot_, but hey, what goes on tour, stays on tour.
