  •  Mrs Dood is German... I been there 5-6 times (7+ / 0-)

    over the many years... my German is still an atrocious amalgam of Spanish/German... I'm old, OK?...

    Funny story... I never drank much, and certainly didn't like beer... My father-in-law in Wiesebaden was like... "Was?!?... ach! nein, nein, nein!" ... needless to say, I sampled MANY beers the first time I was there, and discovered... "Hey! I REALLY like beer!" ... came back to the good ole US of A and said to myself, "I'm gonna get me some beer and drink it, since I like it!"... went straight to the supermarket and brought home "The King of Beers" thinking it ought to be the best.... MASSIVE spit take, followed by, "What the HELL is THAT!!"...

    After decades in the brewing wilderness, and actually bringing home bottles of beer from Germany in suitcases, we finally have passable microbreweries here... still, I can tell the difference... ;)

    (BTW... still love Mrs Dood very much... and[bit of advice] NEVER forget to say it every day..;)
