Default The greatest beer in all zee vorld!

I assume most of you have seen brewfest at this point. I'm wondering what style of beer they are refering to? Since it is from Bavaria would it be a Hefe wiezen?

Something tells me that not much thought was put into that when they were writing the movie. Funny thing - those "Das Boot" things are not available in ebay. I'd love to have one of those

yeah I have to agree, there were some parts that were disapointing. Overall I really liked it but when he drowns in the beer because the yeast sucked him down.. That was stupid.

My biggest gripe was they didn't show enough of the sweedish chicks.

If you watch the deleted scenes there is one with one of the Swedish babes. Don't want to tell you too much about it, but it involves a guy, a Swedish chick, rope, and a bare chest!

Oh, don't get me wrong - I liked the movie. Yes, it was stupid, but I expected nothing less.

It was to dark to be a hefe. Probably a Munich Dunkle. Great movie by the way.

Considering they were drinking during Oktoberfest, wouldn't it have been in that style?

I'm gonna go get a slap and a tickle!

I didn't see the movie, but chances are Hollywierd fouled up the language/translations as they usually do.

You guys may be too young to remember the movie "Das Boot". "Das Boot" in German to English means "the boat" in this case "Das -U-Boot" or the "Unterwasser boot" which we call an "underwater boat" or "submarine".

What you guys are looking for is called a "bierstiefel".

The beer served during the O'fest is called a "Marzen" or March beer because that's when it's brewed.

You can get a Hefe, but it's not available in all the tents. I used to live 40 miles from Munich and have been to the "Wiez'n" (as it's called by the locals) over a dozen times...1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003...
