    What is the name of the beer? I can not read the label. It's imported from Gemany, right? It must be dear!

    From Georgia's post(s), you can learn much about German eating habits. How everything is arranged on the table, etc. I was in Britain, and it wasn't so there. Every lunch meal, every meal actually, was a torture. Already even visually. It's true America differs from Britain.

    You also can understand now the German attitude to 'brands'. The beer on the table is 'German' beer, it's ONE BRAND of German beer. There are thousands of such 'beers', each of them brewed for and sold in a certain limited region. And each of these beers has its own two names: its sort name, and its brand name. You simply can't keep in mind all the names of all the beers. You will just know those beers which you prefer, or which you once tasted, or whose name you know perchance.

    But as it is with the German beer, so it is with each and every other German man-made thing: there are thousands of small workshops, of lone craftsmen, each and every making their own things. You can't know them all, because life is too short.

    The Weizenbier (wheat beer) is typically Bavarian. I can drink it, yet I do not like it so much. If I am in Bavaria (or in China), I will drink it. If I am not in Bavaria, I will not drink it.

    The name of the beer is "Weihenstephaner."
    The label reads "BREWED & BOTTLED BY BAYERISCHE STAATSBRAUEREI WEIHENSTEPHAN, FREISING, GERMANY."

    More information:

    And...dear it is . Pretty much the only beer I will drink is Kristallweizen.

    Weihenstephaner is one of the more famous beers, in Germany, the brandname is also known outside Bavaria.

    How much? Does the bottle speak to you: "Gimme 5!"??

    Spjabork,

    I am not a big alcohol drinker, never have been, never will be. I also do not smoke and I never even tried any other drugs. Never had the desire to do so. A 500 ml bottle of Kristallweizen about every 3 - 4 month is more than enough for me. And every once in a while I enjoy a small glass of very dry and heavy red wine.

    The Kristallweizen is "dear" to me, because it tastes just like the Kristallweizen in Germany and is actually a German beer. I am pleased I am able to purchase it about 2 hours from where I live, the store actually carries a large selection of different beer from all over the world. One 500 ml bottle is right at 4 FRNs.

    I was in Bavaria a few days before Christmas 2015. I love the rural regions as well as the Bavarian dialect. My ancestry is Sachsen and the Schwabenland. Meissen, Auf den Fildern and Hohenlohe im Frankenland, to be exact. I was born in the Hohenloher region. So yes, I am a Schwäbin through and through. My paternal Opa had lost most of his sächsischen dialect by the time I came along. He spoke more schwäbisch than sächsisch.

    When I speak with family and friends on the phone they are amazed at my heavy schwäbischen dialect, I never lost it despite having lived here for most of my life. I can speak the high German as well; however, there is always that beautiful schwäbischer dialect noticeable.

    I could write about my life experiences, a huge book with many, many chapters. I have a lot to tell. But I must take leave. The sun is shining at 20 degrees C after a light rain early this morning. Everything has turned green outside, the Azalea bushes are in full bloom as are the Dogwood trees and so many other trees and plants. So...nature, here I come....!

    Y'all on Skadi have a great and safe weekend.

    Georgia

    So, it is cheaper than I thought! The Bavarians are humane to them Southerners.

    (with 'dear' I meant = expensive, because in England, the word still can be used in this meaning. Now I know in USA it cannot, another difference between them.)

    Last night- leftover meatloaf my sister made when she visited and baked sweet potato, with cranberry juice to drink.


    Tonight -Steamed Cauliflower with White Cheese sauce, Kaiser Semmel, Deer Salami, Apple Juice and Coffee.

    I am very tired lately and don't feel like cooking much.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.
