Samuel Adams, Weinhenstephen (1040) and the Reinheitsegebot

Samuel Adams, the largest American-owned beer company that brews its own beer, is partnering with Germany's oldest brewery, Weinhenstephen (founded by Benedictine monks in Bavaria in 1040).  The objective is to produce for sale in the USA and in Germany a "new" beer that meets the requirements of the purity brewing law, the Reinheitsgebot.
