Still alive

You'll be pleased to hear (most of you, at least) that I made it back from Munich alive. Just about. A couple of weeks in a sanatorium should have me almost as good as new. Or what passes for new in an old bastard like me.

Munich is a beery town. I already knew that. A very beery town. The industrial scale on which it's served can be quite intimidating. Even for such an enthusiastic pisshead as me. Seeing a waitress with 3 gallons of beer in her mits brings this fact home. Or when a 50 litre barrel is emptied in 15 minutes.

Binge drinking. There's a lot of that going on in Munich. A single beer in some places gets you into the binge-drinking zone, as defined by various twats in Britain. Germans couldn't give a toss about such twaddle. Especially in Bavaria. Or "ladies glasses". Or the rubbish that women don't like beer as much as men.

More details of my trip will follow. That's a threat. (Shouldn't that be "promise"?). Vicariously drink every Maß and crunch every Schweinehaxe along with me. Book the sanatorium now.

"...the binge-drinking zone, as defined by various twats in Britain."

I thought the twats did themselves proud this week. Having berated Brewdog last month for brewing an 18.2% ABV beer at £10 per bottle, which clearly is going to bring the fabric of society crashing to the ground, they are now having a pop because they have made a 1.1% hop bomb in response. OK so they did call it "Nanny State" ...

I think there has been a sense of humour failure in the twat camp. No surprise there then.

Still, more free advertising for Brewdog.
