Shit Beer Showdown

Here in Germany there is no lack of great beer; there is also no lack of shit beer. There are several shit German beers which have achieved international fame, the usual big name swills: Beck's, Bitburger and Radeburger, which are all relatively unpleasant pilseners. By no means are these the worst, and it is my mission to find the cheapest, nastiest, skunkiest pisswater in all of Germany.

German Lagers

Lager beer is, for better or worst, the most popular type of beer in the world. Most of the nastiest, cheapest, watery beers produced gigalitre by gigalitre by the enormous multinational breweries around the world are ignominious attempts at brewing lager.

My third week of teaching English in Germany is over and I’ve almost completely settled into my school; I now know the locations of all of my 12 classes and have spoken to all 11 teachers I’ll be assisting, and all of them are more or less approachable and amicable (though I can’t say the same about most of the teachers in the other departments).
