A dry Germany?

Imagine a Deutschland where not a single pint of beer exists. Hard to imagine? What if the the English pay a visit? It seems the Germans can't brew it fast enough too keep up with the visiting British soccer fan's thirst. From the UK Mirror (via Drudge):
Breweries warned beer could run out before the final because of huge demand from our supporters. In Nuremberg, organisers revealed 70,000 England fans who flooded the city drank 1.2MILLION pints of beer - an average of 17 pints each.

Astonished bar keeper Herrmann Murr said: "Never have I seen so many drink so much in such little time."
That could even be funny if it weren't so freaky. (psst...I did laugh)

Wow! I hadn't heard of that yet. Mainly when they talk of the English fans, they're warning you about the hooligans. But then, I haven't heard anything about any incidents with them either.

But that sure is alot of beer!
