Last night I was in a professional society meeting at a German restaurant and we were having some beer and the pitchers were running low so I decided to get a few more for the group. I asked what was on tap and then selected two for the waitress to bring and then a mug of Paulaner Salvator for me to enjoy. I really did not pay attention to the sizes she rattled off since I was in the middle of a conversation with some fellow attendees and so I was a little shocked to see my beer was a liter stein filled to the brim.
The solution is simple, make sure you know what the size is before you let the waitress retrieve the beverage. Sure it was delicious, but a liter of Paulaner Salvator is about 2X more doppelbock than I normally try to enjoy in an evening. Oh, well, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. Prosit!
