Reason #1 Why Germany Is Better Than Texas
As you may or may not know, Germans love their beer. Men, women, young, old, pils, bock, hefe-weizen -- they're into all* of them. So much so that they will defy the strongest taboo in German culture**: good customer service. Germans believe so fervently in the magical offspring of malt, water, hops and yeast (and wheat, if you want the cloudy goodness of weizen) that they will allow good service.
So I give you Durstalarm. For those of you not fluent in German***, this means "Thirst Alarm". And the best part? If you buy by the case, it's only about 5 cents a bottle more than buying it at the sto' myself and lugging it 100 yards back to Stately T Manor.
So, for all of you yutzes having trouble finding Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen, much less dragging it back to your domiciles, perhaps you should head to the 'dorf. Swapping friendly waitrons for surly eurotrash servers is a small price to pay for home delivery of everyone's favorite cirrhosisade.
* Ok, they're not feeling the Belgian beer
** Surprisingly, it's not food with flavor
