Pubarschknall Anyone?
« on: July 05, 2011, 11:53:01 AM »
We had a German consultant in a few weeks ago, a fellow out of Cologne Germany.  He was talking to a friend about beer and crazy translations, and mentioned that his father and brother like a beer called Pubarschknall.  According to him it literally translates as "fart a$$ bang" and was named because when the beer would get somewhat old it would cause some serious digestive disruption.  I looked it up on the web and apparently its a brown ale that is only 1% ABV.  One web translation had it as "beer-fueled flatulence", just slightly less surly than the literal meaning mentioned earlier.

Just thought I'd share, and see if anyone has tried this ale.
