first of all I`ve to say that we really, really like Derek, Greg, Tim, Dave & Janna and we didn`t want to make fun about the beer drinking abilities.
Maybe it was my fault because I ordered a last round for them.
So please Derek don`t be mad about our photos!
To some questions:
Normal german beer is about 4,5 % to 5 %.
Oktoberfest beer is about 6 % to 6,5% plus you`ll drink it even faster than you normally drink beer because it`s really hot in the tents and I think a lot of foreigners forget that it is a 2,1 pint glass (in Europe 1 litre or 34 us ounce) and not a normal glass!
So Derek had nearly 4 glasses. So you can recalculate it in Budweiser!
4 glasses is good for a lot of foreigners, but for germans, especially bavarians, it`s really not that big issue. But don`t understand me wrong: we`re no alcoholics!
By the way if you wanna try real strong beer you`ve to come to munich end of march. There`s a 4 weeks festival where you`ll get "Starkbier", it has about 10% - 12 % alcohol!
And Derek, if we`re coming to the states next september we`ll bring you a bottle of this "Starkbier"
