German brewers are warning the country’s government that the controversial fracking for shale gas could ruin the industry.
Basically, the brewers are concerned that fracking, which involves pumping a mix of water, sand and chemicals into sediments deep underground, might cause impurities in some of the water sources the industry relies on.
Although it’s still very uncertain if fracking could impact the brewers in any way near what they’re fearing and at the same time impossible because of the brewing process, it could be kinda funny seeing an Oktoberfest where people in lederhosen were lighting their beers and burps on fire. Or is that just me?
