how to order a beer in german


It might be worth learning a few extra words or phrases (especially hello and thank you) when you visit a new country – the local people will appreciate that you at least give it a try, even if you mispronounce (which is bound to happen!).

No matter the language, it is always good to enjoy a beer after a “hard” day of traveling. Especially when it is hot and the beer is ice cold.

Happy travels and enjoy your beer(s).
