Here is an excerpt fro the Wiki page on Krombacher:

According to a regulation of 25 July 1618 the sale of beer was permitted only to restaurants having their own brewery and malt kiln. Therefore, John Haas established the brewery within the family business.

Anyone know why several German brewers hauled ass to the US in the 1800's to brew? Does the above regulation have anything to do with it?
