Agreed. It'll be interesting to see what happens to their beer culture. I've been reading for years that younger Germans aren't drinking the traditional lagers as much. I've read that they have been going for Bud (believe it or not) and other lighter fare like Radler concoctions. Hope they don't lose their beer culture altogether.
There are a lot of people into craft beer there too. I mean, booze sodas and light lagers are incredibly popular drinks in America, especially with young people, and we still have a pretty good beer culture.
