Dragonheart and his dad(Click photo for a larger image)

Bayern (Bavaria) is known as the "beer capital of the world" and München (Munich) is, of course, famous for the Oktoberfest celebration that takes place every September and October.

According to my humans, the breweries in Munich produce some delicious beer. In this photo, I am quite comfortable on my dad's lap, and he's stuck this bottle of beer next to me. The beer is Paulaner Helles, which is one of my mom's favourite beers here in Munich. Paulaner is the name of the brewery, and Helles is the type of beer. Some of the most popular beers in Munich are Helles (light beer, similar to North American lagers), Dunkles (dark beer), Weißbier (wheat beer), Pils (pilsner), Starkbier (heavy beer consumed during Lent) and of course, Oktoberfest (not quite as heavy as Starkbier, consumed during Oktoberfest).

Great photo! My hubby used to like German Black beer and use to have one of them whenever a restaurant or bar had them. But not that much places in Hawai'i has Black Beer.

Thanks for stopping by.

There are some incredible beers in German--some are very bitter though. Thank you for sharing what your humans like.
Have a wonderful weekend.

This is very late I tried to post before but my PDA doesn't seem to let me.

Now you know you're under-age to be drinking alcohol.
