The Brewer’s Star

In my post on Bamberg and its breweries, I said that the Schenkerla brewery had a star of David hanging from the sign and I didn’t know why.  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:

The Six Point Brewers Star

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.
