Taking the German Beer Purity law into the future: Tradition Meets Innovation. At one point, 36 breweries were located in Heidelberg but they were closed in 1900. Now the four breweries that remain adhere the German Beer Purity Law, which is celebrating its 500th anniversary this year. They use the raw materials for experimentation and creativity and adhere to the motto: “Tradition meets Innovation.“  In a city where one in five people is a student, these breweries and other close by beer gardens and cafes are immensely popular watering holes among the locals and lively social scenes. The four craft brewers are The Heidelberger Brauerei, Kulturbrauerei Heidelberg, Vetter’s Alt Heidelberg Brauhaus and Brauerei zum Klosterhof Heidelberg.
