I’m of German heritage and I’ve never been to Germany (for Oktoberfest or otherwise).
I’d think Andy would be more interested in the local pub bringing in some of those beer garden waitresses.
Poor Andy. Brexit dashed his hopes, I guess.
Two liters are better.
@Linguist Today’s strip Is slightly funny what difference does it make for Jack in what he serves our HErO Mr Andrew Capp in , pints or litres he’s only getting another IOU :o) my avatar is of a flower shaped like a kiss to commemorate St Valentine’s day, I’m getting my better half , a card , a bouquet of Flowers and a big box of chocolates , are you going to do the same? Comment allez vous passer votre jour mon moins vieux ami? our Finally Friday as Starlet used to call today should be busy but calm I hope, BCNU pal
I can understand Andy’s argument… One litre is the equivalent to 1.76 pints (or 2.11 American pints)…
In the mid 50’s I was stationed in Frankfurt Germany and during the Oktoberfest they served dark Bully Bock Bier. Mmm good!
I think Jack might be Brexit supporter and never talks about Europe, lol. By the way this is February not October.
If you like drinking expensive beer with a drunken mob Oktoberfest is the place for you. I always preferred any one of the 100’s of other local beer and wine fests found any and everywhere in Germany. Oktoberfest is for tourists. A place like Killiani Fest, in Wurzburg, is for the echte Deutsche. So says an old Marne Dog.
Thank goodness Brexit has kept out liter-size mugs! All hail BoJo!
I’m sure Andy would appreciate one particular tradition they had at Oktoberfest. Whenever the oom-pah band strikes up Ein Prosit everyone sings along and toasts each other. If your stein happens to be empty at that moment someone next to you will pour half of their beer into yours. You must toast!
Looks like Andy has caught the liter-bug.
Construction crane in the background. I’ll bet they are hiring. Pay’s good, too.
When I was 14 my family was on vacation in Munich, and our tour group went to the famous “Bier Hall” for lunch. As soon as we were seated, the beer wench came over and served all of us a liter mug of beer, including my brother, age 16, and me. My mom was appalled. I did get to take a taste/drink of it, and quickly decided I didn’t have a taste for the stuff.
I like to practice Oktoberfest at home…a lot….
Last Sunday, I mentioned that I’d been working in Sandbach, Chester and I made comments about three pubs there – The Cobbles, Ye Olde Black Beare Inn and The Lower Chequer. Yesterday and today, I’ve been working in Sandbach again. Yesterday, I found another pub there. It’s called The Swan and Chequer. I asked in there and in The Lower Chequer but no one seems to know whether The Swan and Chequer and The Lower Chequer are connected in any way besides having Chequer in their names.
After drinking the beer in Munich, I didn’t know how I was going to go back to drinking the beer at home. But one adapts.
So just get a couple pints.
European beer may be better than American beer, but as far as I know, Europeans haven’t come up with a good soft drink. (e.g. root beer.)
! Number Six was surprised that’s He’s being ghosted [da Goat lacks the ethics to inform Its victims], but insists He’ll “be back”.
. . .meanstwhile; visit His Comics Fansite:
How about gallon-size?
I hope nobody forgot to send Vanna White a VOWELENTINE’s day card.
!? Anyone else a fan of the cult favourite Beerfest; It’s good to the last drop.
I was there in ’77. I was impressed with the buxom waitresses Holding FIVE of those litre mugs in EACH HAND !!! lol
Keep it up, Andy, and you’ll be lucky if he serves you beer in a little glass.
The bartender could go along, he should just charge Andy double.
I thought they were served in steins.
