deutsches Bier: der Bierkasten

So in preparation for a little pumpkin carving party, we went out and got a Kasten of Bier.

In Germany when you buy beer in bottles, you can get a plastic crate (Bierkasten), and you pay something like 3,50 EUR deposit on the plastic crate, which you get again when you return the bottles (also a deposit on bottles). Sehr praktisch!

This particular one has 0,5 Liter bottles...good, German-sized beers...and quite heavy!

  1. 20 bottles is a standard now. In the good old times, the crates had 30 bottles.
