Good Beer Area and the Wireless

We spent the past Easter weekend in the heart of Germany, namely the region Franconia in northern Bavaria.

As usual, we met my siblings over dinner in one of those rural guesthouses, where local cuisine and often home brewed beer is served. When I opened my iPad, this popped up:

Good Beer Area

We had a good laugh on this one – the guesthouse on main street in this small village of Hausen with a population of 636 residents – uses English. Quite modest is its claim of Good Beer Area. They should call it Best Beer Area.

Quoting Frank Zappa:

“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.”
