Beer. It’s what’s for breakfast.

In Bayern, you can have a traditional breakfast of Weisswurst with sweet mustard, a soft pretzel and a delicious Weissbier. (There is no lemon in beer. Lemon is for lemonade. Get over it.) Here I am in action last year when a friend came to visit.

Now that is a healthy breakfast, and you get to have beer before the 10 o’clock rule. Then I get to see this. Talk about your bummer. I mean sure, I’m still paying less for a case than anyone in the US, and it’s the best beer on the planet, but damn. Hits you in the wallet, with a follow-up jab to the liver.

And yes, that woman is carrying 12 litres of beer at Oktoberfest. 12 . litres . of . beer .

  1. Think….that barley farming problem they are experiencing is screwing up the beer prices….now apply the same pricipals to our own agricultural system. Farmers will stop growing edibles and start growing “eco-fuel” because of the huge government subsidies. Den what we gonna eat? Also, what we gonna EXPORT? And does anyone in govt recognise this or care?

  2. I get to work all happy becuase it is Friday which means I can get out of here early and go enjoy some Belgium white beer (I know not as good as the stuff from Germany but hey) and then I see this. I am sad now I don’t need to be thinking about how my bio-fuel is going to cause my beer price to increase while I am drinking. I need a beer.

  3. oh yeah on a good note in my industrial complex there is a micro brew opening up that brews only wheat and rye beers mostly dubbels and quads. So yeah for me in a month when his first batch is done and I am drunk at work. This complex is starting to shape up. We got me a -shirt printer, the dance studio(hot women) the caterers, hmmmmm bbq pork, and now a brewery. Yeah it is going to be a good year.

  4. JC… it truely is a never-ending cycle. I am drowning my sorrows in some Andechs Bergbock Hell tonite.

    And Belgian beer is quite tasty in its own right.

  5. Those pretzels are soooooooooooooooooo good on their own. And then you get sausage… and then beer?! Your head can explode. I gotta visit again soon. Top it off by the fact the wife had no problems with beer b4 10am because it was the local culture? _Awesome_

    PS> Someone should have taken a bar to your head sooner :)

  6. Yeah… the bar… If you take a bit or Marty Feldman , mix in some early Sinatra, then run it through equal parts Snake Pliskin and Michael Berryman (the Hills Have Eyes…) then you’re getting somewhere. Not sure where, but it’s somewhere…

  7. sommer,
    Yes, they recognize it. It’s another scam to pass out tax money to corporate welfare programs, it’s exactly what the politicians want.
