tinfoil-hat maggie: As long as your raising cool kinders and up for that go for it, I'm just not the type.


Please don't infer any judgment on my part, Mags.
The kidettes met this singer a few years back when she was here. They adopted her as a "cool granny."
It took them about twenty seconds.

Dude, you're brave enough to raise kids, and well defiantly looks like you're raising then right, which is something well. something I'm unwilling to do so I didn't have them and good on you for raising them right. and really no judgement there, and congrats again.
Now drink ; )

So now it's German beer that will be fracking close to water?

OMG, I hope not, that would be a truly sad day.

squibbits: I once half-jokingly asked for an American beer at a bar in Ulm. The bartender gave me and odd look and asked: "Do they make beer in America?"


Did they pour you a glass of water?

demaL-demaL-yeH: Bavarians are deadly serious about Bier.


Until it's in the bottle/barrel. After that, we tend to be a bit more lenient. I mean, mixing beer with X might be bad, but it's certainly better than just drinking X by itself.

/X being e.g. lemonade ("Radler" or "Russ" -> Biker/Russian) or coke (can't tell you what that's called).

No but that would have been funny! Instead he introduced me to a "friend" of his... a very cute but sort of butchy girl who was an unemployed truck driver. She took me to an underground club that stayed upen all night in the old part of the city. It was a fun night and a very rough next day at work.

Hmm... I use natural gas to make my beer, so I'm kind of torn....

Don't care, already got their recipes and I make my own.

Homebrewer snobbery: GO.

I used to moonlight as a musician in the Hofbräu Beer Garden in Panama City Beach. All the beer is imported from the HB in Munich. Wonderful stuff.

Germany is very serious about their beer. Weihenstephan is a town in Bavaria that houses a literal beer university. It is a three-year school you are required to go to if you want to open a brewery. Incidentally, they also produce the best beer I've ever tasted.

TFHM, I'll buy you a pint if you're ever in the St. Augustine area.

Deucetoo: Colabier?


Colaweissbier/-weizen is getting more popular, but the original name made an allusion to the dark coloring of the beverage. Not very politically correct nowadays, but still rather common on menus.

It is all good...

German beer gives me natural gas!

/what?

Good thing that German researchers can use the U.S. research to show that fracking is not a problem. Politicians, not so much.
If only we could put a reservoir cap on politicians, to seal them away where they'd do no harm.

Radler is sparkling lemonade mixed with Bier - Russ is when it's mixed with Weitzen - and it's a summer beverage.
I never encountered Colabier. (Sounds like a hork-for-distance kind of thing.)

Spezi is another nice thing about summer in Bavaria.

tinfoil-hat maggie: Gyrfalcon: timujin: The first time I read the headline I thought someone had figured out a way to frack for German beer...

That's what I thought!! And then I thought, Drew...?

If I ever get back out that way you have to promise to come drinking with me : )


Don't know if you meant me or Gyrfalcon, but since we're both "out that way", I'll say yes.

I didn't realize that fracking for German beer was possible.
 
2013-05-24 09:43:44 PM
There's plenty Deutschmarks here to earn
And German tarts are wunderschoen
German beer is chemical-free
Germany's alright with me
