Differences between German and English versions[edit]

Someone should translate the German version of the entry into English. I'd do it, but with only rudimentary skill at German, this would take me a month. Just a suggestion.

Very good idea, especially as the German article disagrees considerably with this one:

"Damit gelten die Vorschriften über zulässige Zutaten des alten BierStG jetzt nur noch für die Bierherstellung in Deutschland für den deutschen Markt. Importiertes Bier ist aufgrund des o.a. Urteils des Europäischen Gerichtshofes von 1987 nicht an diese Vorschriften gebunden; auch deutsche Brauereien dürfen davon abweichen, wenn sie für den Export produzieren, oder für „besondere Biere“ eine Ausnahmegenehmigung erhalten."

That's very different from what is stated here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:19, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Based on Google Translate, I've tried to clear up the most obvious differences between the two, consistent with good practices around sourcing (lots of the German article, like this one, is unsourced). If anyone else wants to pitch in, you're welcome to! —Luis (talk) 02:34, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
I've done a lot more to get the key points from the German article into this one. Again, though, if anyone is a native German speaker, especially if you're comfortable with looking up German sources, there is a lot more information there that could be imported! —Luis (talk) 06:21, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Luis, thanks for your work on the article, you've made some good improvements. I'll try to translate over some more from the German article when I have time.IamNotU (talk) 19:11, 5 September 2015 (UTC)


Whoever keeps editing the English version of this page really to improve his or her writing skills. I went ahead and make (MADE) some grammatical changes; the page is still not pretty, but at least it doesn't sound like a first year "Inglisch" student wrote the wiki.

Future editors, if you plan to edit this page, please, please, please make sure you are a native or near-native writer. Don't just directly translate words from the German version of this wiki, or write without at least consulting someone who uses English on a regular basis.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 06:24, 28 November 2004 (UTC)

Bavarian centered view = POV?[edit]

Where is Weimar? Where is Weißensee? Have a look at the article by German Wikipedia for a more accurate point of view. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:17, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I have attempted to address this somewhat, but note that this section of the German article is poorly sourced, and I have had difficulty finding many good sources in English on the subject. —Luis (talk) 00:53, 5 September 2015 (UTC)


Hi, I think the article could be improved by rearranging its paragraphs to ensure the chronology of the events mentioned. --Gnom (talk) 15:30, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

There is a new stamp![edit] Stephanie — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:87:4A71:2716:AC22:6327:78E6:DB5D (talk) 12:18, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Unfortunately German stamps are somewhat problematic. (It is a little bit of a wonder that the 450-year stamp hasn't already been deleted.) For more details, see here. —Luis (talk) 05:13, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
