German brewer accused of making 'Nazi beer' critical of refugee policy | World news | The Guardian - Röhrl Brewery removed the variety from sale this week and apologised for “hurt feelings”, but denied having any sympathy with the far right.

Frank Sillner, the chief executive of the brewery in Straubing, said he had intended the special issue of 2,000 crates to be a commentary on the migration crisis and a reminder of Bavarian values.

It also says “the homeland needs beer”, while the back of the label features the words “protect”, “defend” and “preserve” alongside virtues such as “diligence”, “loyalty” and “discipline”.
