when is the last time you purchased beer? :-(
Quite a while ago, thanks to boring prescription contraindications, but you may have misunderstood. Western Europe has-- or used to have-- stricter rules about what could and couldn't go into a beer. The other stuff would be, let's say, "grain-based vaguely alcoholic beverage" in your language of choice. Slap on the Export Quality label and you can ship it off to the US and call it beer. That doesn't mean you can't also sell good beer. It means that it doesn't legally have to be good to be called beer.
