Oops. Not racial purity, I meant of course Germany’s Reinheitsgebot or beer purity law.
Nazi-branded Beer Sells Out at German Drinks Store – Thuringia police have already established the brand itself is legal.
Images were circulating on German social media on Friday showing a Nazi-branded beer for sale in a drinks store in the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt.
The images showed bottles labelled with the name “Deutsches Reichsbraeu,” or German Reich Brew, in a font favored by the Nazis on sale for 18.88 euros.
The numbers 1 and 8 correspond to the second and eighth letters of the alphabet – the initials of Adolf Hitler. The 88 stands for “Heil Hitler.” The new beer brand was announced online at the beginning of the year by a well-known right-wing extremist from the neighbouring state of Thuringia.
Eine Konsequenz gibt es bereits für den Getränkemarkt: Der Franchise-Geber kündigte die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Eigentümer des Geschäfts am Morgen nach eigenen Angaben auf.
