November 30, 1487

On November 30, 1487, Germany enacted the first German Beer Purity Law in Munich by Albert IV, Duke of Bavaria. He stated that beer should be brewed only from water, malt and hops. This prove so popular that in the 1930s and 1940s, Germany tried to enact human purity laws, which did not prove as popular with the rest of the world. Too far Germany, too far.
