A lifestyle expat travel blog about culture, history, Brexit, the Royal Family, travels around the world, Europe, and being British in Berlin!
If there’s one thing that Germans do well, it’s eat sausages and drink beer!
Beer in Germany isn’t a joke.
And neither is Oktoberfest!
Some people would have you believe that Oktoberfest is only known in Bavaria.
And that the Bavarians aren’t really Germans!
But it isn’t true.
Of course they are.
And I should know ‘cos I’m more German than the Germans.
But for goodness sake.
Whatever you do, please don’t order water at the bar.
I’m an awful beer drinker as I tend to cradle my drink and my pint lasts at least an hour!
I’m a disgrace to all that is British!
Having said that, German beer is one of the best in the world.
Because it’s brewed according to some of the strictest brewery laws and has been in existence since the Middle Ages!
These brewery laws are called Reinheitsgebot and are a set of purity rules that ensure that only water, hops, and malt are in your beer and that beers that don’t use a certain amount of barley-malt, are top-fermented!
In those days, it was healthier to drink beer than to drink water!
None of your crap beers here.
Having said that, the German laws on alcohol are pretty liberal as undistilled (fermented) alcoholic beverage, such as beer and wine isn’t considered “hard liquor,” the legal age is 16, and in some supermarkets, beer can be bought for as little as 29 cents a bottle and if you really know where to look, 18 cents!
So there’s that!
I’m sure you know that I’m not a beer connoisseur, but the easiest way to categorise German beer is as follows:

Some people might think that by coming to Berlin or Munich for a lost weekend, they know everything they need to know about German beer.
Not so my friends.

I enjoy an occasional beer, but like you, I don’t seek it out. Margaritas?…. yes please…haha! This is great for beer lovers. I have just been back home and di indulge in some Star Lager. I absolutely love the taste of that one, and miss it :-).
Yep! A beer every now and then, especially in the summer, with friends, is delightful. But like yourself, I do have my favourite tipple.
Mind you a margarita isn’t bad at all but I’m more averse to champagne and vodka.
But not together! Haw! Haw!
Thanks very much KemKem!
p.s. Any lager is a good lager! 😀
