  • Description

    BERLIN'S OLDEST BREWERY CELEBRATED ITS 125TH ANNIVERSARY YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) WITH FREE BEER ALL ROUND. ALTHOUGH, AS USUAL, THERE WAS SOMETHING OF A CATCH IN IT - THERE WERE ONLY 12 SO CALLED BEER 'FOUNTAINS' THAT WERE IN A GIVE-AWAY MOOD.

    QUICK TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY BEER-LOVING BERLINERS QUEUED UP EARLY AT WHAT MUST HAVE BEEN THE DAY'S MOST POPULAR BARS IN THE CITY.

    SO EAGER WERE SOME PEOPLE IN FACT THAT ONE NEWLY-WED COUPLE MADE STRAIGHT FROM THE CHURCH TO THE NEAREST 'FOUNTAIN'.

    WHITE-COATED WAITERS, THEIR HANDS FESTOONED WITH BEER MUGS, WERE RUN OFF THEIR FEET TRYING TO KEEP PACE WITH CONSUMPTION.

    IN KEEPING WITH THE PREVAILING AIR OF MERRIMENT ACCORDION PLAYERS AND BRASS KEPT UP A CONTINUOUS SERENADE AS RIVERS OF BEER DISAPPEARED DOWN THIRSTY THROATS.
