German Beer Purity Law from 1516
"How beer should be served and brewed in summer and winter in the principality"
"Herewith, we decree, order, express and wish, together with the Privy Council, that from this day forth everywhere in the Principality of Bavaria, in the countryside as in the towns and marketplaces, wherever no other specific ordinance applies, from St. Michael's Day until St. George's Day a measure or head of beer shall not be sold for more than one pfennig Munich currency and from St. George's Day until St. Michael's Day a measure shall not be sold for more than two pfennigs of the same currency, nor a head for more than three haller. Violators of this decree shall be punished as prescribed below. Whoever should brew a beer other than Maerzen, is forbidden, under any circumstances, to serve or sell a measure for more than one pfennig. We especially wish that, from this point on and everywhere in the countryside as well as in the towns and marketplaces, nothing is to be added to or used in beer other than barley, hops and water. Whosoever knowingly disobeys this decree will be severely punished by the court having jurisdiction over him by having his barrel of beer confiscated whenever this offense occurs. Whenever an innkeeper buys beer at the prescribed price from any brewery in the countryside as well as in the towns and marketplaces, he is allowed to resell it privately to the lowly peasantry for one haller more than the price of the measure or head of beer stipulated above."

That's true, but it was amended years later to include yeast. I forget exactly when it was amended.

It's too bad you can't get higher resolution output. I was able to do some fancy importing into Illustrator to convert the wheat ring to vector and really punch the res up. Now I do all the center image work in photoshop as a separate layer.

Don't know what kinds of music you guys are into but the Dropkick Murphys are one of my favorite bands. Kind of where I pulled some of the inspiration for these labels. They're an Irish punk band that is big on the working class and beer/whisky/having a good time.(only thing I'm not real sure of is the coloring...I do like the black/grey with the worker as that is one of their logos).
