In Germany There’s a Word for ‘A Beer To Walk Around With’

Every year in my town there are 3 summer festivals during which we are allowed to walk around 2 city blocks with a beer in our hand for 5 hours. This reprieve from the restrictions of drinking only in little outposts along the streets stirs much glee in the hearts of my townspeople.

Such a thing each summer seems quite a special event, until you read that throughout Germany walking around drinking a beer in public is so normal they have a word for it. Wegbier is the term for a beer you drink while walking around…because you can do it all over the place anytime you want. #MyLawsAreStupid
