Purity laws mean most German beers of the same kind taste so similar as makes no difference. Even the bottles are standard thanks to recycling. I bet you could swap the labels and most people couldn't tell one from another.

Are they adding peanuts and strawberries to Irish brews and serve it in cans so people can tell that it's different?

Can you expand on your non sequitur a little? Ireland has never had purity laws, not that it makes a difference either way to my point.

I'll be glad to. You mentioned, that because of German purity law, which allows only water, hops and malt as ingredients, all German beer essentially tastes the same. Obviously, this is not true, since one can achieve quite different results, depending on quality and quantity of said ingredients. But since you seemed certain that this is not the case, I merely suggested to add other ingredients to the brew to make sure, that even you will taste a difference.
As for the bottles, they're generally being reused, as in each brewery takes their own bottles back, washes and refills them, which doesn't mean that every brewery in the country uses the same type of bottle. If you feel like it, do a GIS for Haacke Beck, Warsteiner and Flensburger. I'd say those bottles aren't quite identical.

Based on your post, I have to assume, that you've never been to Germany, or if you have, you obviously had too much quality beer you couldn't seem to handle.
