Last weekend it finally happened: The 25th Schneider Weisse Fanclubtreffen! Expect no story and a lot of pictures!
Starkbierfest. Aventinusfest. Madnessfest! Madness? Almost suicidally so, I’d say, a fest where the main beverage is a glass of beer with almost 7! units of alcohol.
Schneider Weisse fanclubtreffen
The interesting part about Schneider is that they hold their fans in special regard. They even have fanclubs all over the world which they support and every year there’s a fanclubtreffen. This year the treffen was in Eindhoven.
German beer customs and quirkiness
It’s fascinating to see that Germany has a very extensive beer culture with a whole set of customs, behaviours and rituals. For tourists it might be confusing, as waiters/waitresses will seem quite curtly a lot of the time, until you adhere to the customs or are in any other way found okay, then nothing is too much.
