The natural components together with minerals and vitamins make the drink special. Bier has been a regular and important component of the daily diet of all population groups for several thousand of years. Bier's history dates back to prehistoric ancient times when the Sumarians discovered the fermentation process (about 6000 years ago).

A Type of German Bier • I was over the moon when I discovered there was an alcohol free Weissbier available as I've developed a real taste for this stuff over the years on trips to Munich and Erdinger is brand we've bought here and always found rather fine.
Bier Gardens Beer gardens have a long tradition in Munich. King Ludwig the first is to be held responsible for allowing brewers to server beer outside the "Braustube" (brewer's locale). Outside meant above the cellars where beer could be kept cool without available refrigeration. To keep the cellars cold chestnut trees were planted for shade. The not so wealthy citizens of Munich could not afford the food served but the brewers did not want to miss their business. A compromise arose letting people bring in their own lunches and dinners as long as they bought the beer and sat down at tables without table cloths. This is still true today.
