C'mon. It's Germany. I had to do it. The beer there is plentiful...and pretty.
And while in the next photos, it may appear that I am a bad mother...yes, I did let Young Boy taste it. We were in Germany, for gracious sakes...and, he's never tried it before. Know what? Even though he's smiling, he hated it :) (And those were borrowed mugs, not his own!)
I asked our hostess about drinking beer during the workday (say, on your lunch break) and she said that is quite acceptable. Go figure.
I didn't partake in any of the golden beverage while we were there...just not my thing. But I do appreciate the craft...it seemed as if every town had its own special brew. Tradition...that's cool.
