Beers Americans are more familiar with didn't fair much better. Warsteiner came in at 20.73 micrograms per liter, third-worst among all 14 beers; while Radeberger came in at 12.01 micgrams/liter; Bitburger and Beck's came in at the lower end, with Bitburger at 0.55 micrograms/liter and Beck's at 0.50 micrograms/liter. Still, all these beers were well above the allowable 0.1 threshold.
Of course, the German government and beer industry were quick to counter the study's findings, according to Reuters.
"An adult would have to drink around 1,000 liters (264 U.S. gallons) of beer a day to ingest enough quantities to be harmful for health," Germany's Federal Institute for Risk assessment said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the brewers behind many of the beers included in the study questioned the findings altogether, with AB Inbev calling the findings "absurd and completely unfounded."
Obviously, this battle is just beginning to bubble, and more back-and-forth about glysophate seeping into beer appears to be brewing, as Germany is Europe's largest beer producer, with more than 1,300 breweries and 5,000 different beers. Beer pun.
