Jim said he thought there was something about that in Miltenberg, and I noticed that my photo of the sign for the Hotel Zum Reisen in Miltenberg also had a star of David hanging from the sign. But I didn’t have any notes on it.
I got curious, and I googled “star of david german brewers” and came up with a fascinating explanation from the Museum of Beer and Brewing:
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
Footnote: for the record, I edited the link to the Museum of Beer and Brewing and corrected a typo. It should work now.
