Joe,

I get real German bier here in Tacoma, Washington all the time. There are several places that sell it, but my favorite store quit selling it recently and I'm heart broken. Now I have to travel farther into a part of town I do not like.

Looking at this group makes me thirsty and not for whatever.
I want a real German beer and you cannot buy them here, because
we are safe and pasteurize our beer. I can drink 3 of them a day. Can anyone tell me how long of a trip I would have to plan to have 1 of each brand and type should I go to Deuscthland?

I remember the L Troop beer machine on the first floor, in an alcove near the troop offices.  When I was just assigned to L Troop, I was told to clean the floor in the alcove which was a b#$%h since the tiles were grooved.  A guy came down and handed me a broom and all was well.  Until we started moving around I always kept a bunch of quarters to buy beer, .75 cents think...

I agree. THE best thing was the Next Year, by then my future Ex wife had joined me, and the Expression on HER Face as I explained what was about to happen and Fraus started coming in? PRICELESS

At least it was the ladies, Mark, and not the gents!

I had a corner apartment in the old Rathaus in Bad Berneck. Spent most of my 1st summer in the field and that fall, there came a knock on the ally window and it was the Gal from Guast Haus across the ally, who annouced she was glad I was home and I had to open my window Door style for her to pass me my Beer. That was just grand. Then she propped what was obviously a custom made set of steps up to my window and came in. Locals were getting more interesting by the minute. then she put a sucker hook on my window with an arrow pointing in that said Damen? THIS was how I found out that my special bathroom with one hot and one cold toilet served as the overflow restroom for the local fest.

We had beer machines in Bindlach too, but they were empty more often than not.

Just guess how many beers have been opened with an Army issued 1911 with the slide locked in the open position.
