Let the good times roll: Starting September 17, more than six million people from all around the world will be enjoying themselves at the #oktoberfest in Munich for two weeks. Traditionally, #siemens supplies drives and control systems as well as energy distribution for the festival's rides. Automation solutions from #siemens also control special beer pipelines – the only ones of its kind worldwide –that supply the Hacker, Winzerer Faehndl and Braeurosl festival tents with their tasty #oktoberfest brews. Because many breweries use #siemens technologies within their brewing process, #siemens doesn't only ensure fresh beer at the #oktoberfest.
2016 marks a very special year in the German beer industry: the 500th jubilee of the Purity Law or "Reinheitsgebot". In 1516, the Bavarian co-rulers Duke Wilhelm IV and Ludwig X issued a decree in Ingolstadt to the effect that henceforth, only barley, hops and water could be used in the brewing of beer. The world's oldest food law was born, and its fame has since spread around the world. German beer is one of the country's most popular exports, with around 1.5 billion liters shipped to foreign shores every year.
