19:Beer :

German introduced beer first and still German beer has a special welcome around the world.

  1. Germans are the second largest beer consumers in the world, after the Irish (of course).
  2. Beer is officially considered a food in Bavaria.
  3. Michael Ballack does not like beer.
  4. Source materials vary somewhat in awarding countries their ranks in per-capita consumption, but it is clear that the Germans love their beer. In 1516, the Reinheitsgebot, the German Beer Purity Law, was passed in the city of Ingolstadt, allowing that only water, barley, and hops be used in the production of beer. At the time, they were unaware of the role that yeast plays in brewing (it had been a happy accident up to that point). The law has since been updated, but over the subsequent 500 years, the German enthusiasm for beer has hardly waned. Germany is home to approximately 1,250 breweries, nearly four times as many as all the other countries in the EU combined.This love affair is truly made manifest during a span between late September and early October, when Oktoberfest  is celebrated in Munich. Millions from around the world flock to the city to take part in the spectacle, where girls in dirndl dresses serve very strong (approximately 6.0 percent alcohol) beer in Maßkrug one-liter mugs. Perhaps not surprisingly, this excessive consumption can lead to problems, such as people fighting or passing out from intoxication. Those given to such massive overindulgence are dubbed Bierleichen (beer corpses) .
  5. The Munich Oktoberfest actually starts in late September. Don’t worry too much if you miss it: there are 60 beer gardens in and around the city that are open all summer.
  6. In a pub, you would raise your thumb and not your index finger to ask for a glass of beer.
