The Circle of Beer


Okay, not so much a "circle" as a "food chain". Norwegians and Swedes think their beer is too expensive and cross the water to buy it in Denmark (or Finland, but we don't talk about that). Danes just think beer is too expensive in Scandinavia as a whole and cross the border to buy it in Germany. And Germans buy their beer in...nah, I could go on forever. :XD:

Yup, they're singing drinking songs. The first is a Swedish drinking song that is sung all over Scandinavia. The second is of course German.

@MrEvers
Okay, that comment means all-out-total-beer-war.
Just kidding. Had to reinforce some German stereotypes, right? ;-)
Normal Belgian beer is great and all, but some of the stuff you are allowed to put into beer is downright nasty.
Come on, strawberry beer? I laughed so hard when I saw that.

Beer is the foundation of our civilization. Scientists theorize that people in Anatolia stopped being nomads and settled down to become farmers because they discovered that if you left your barley porridge sit overnight something wonderful happened. You could cook it to make barley cakes or you could add more water and it would turn the water to a magical fluid that removed cares.

Actually, the song goes "Helan går, sjung hopp farellallan lallan lej" if you will have the correct swedish one. Maybe it's a little different in Denmark, but that's how it is sung in Sweden.

Only Belgium has real beer. We wash our dishes with the weak and/or horrible stuff other countries produce. :p

@KRyptic That is a sissy sounding beer. I can see i being for a whine cooler, but beer? As for the circle of beer in America, if youre in a border state with Mexico, they'll go there. Mostly due to haveing a lower drinking age in Meixco.

I am from Kiel, and we have special reminders in our shops downtown to remind swedes and norwegians of the legal maximum import of alcohol, because we have ferries to Oslo and Göteborg bringing 'tourists' that want to buy cheap beer...
