Aachen's Beer

Tube - the being being back for the time being

Very good entry! I think there was an entry on Printen as well somewhere.
There used to be a small brewery called Degraa. But then the place burned down and was not re-opened. The advertising slogan went "Opa wurde 100jährig, stets trank er Degraa Obergärig" (Grandpa lived to a hundred years, he always drank Degraa Obergärig). Some people came up with the answer to that, which was "Oma wurde 110, hat Degraa nie geseh'n" (Grandma lived to 110 and never even saw Degraa) (hope the Moderators are happy with the translations). The counter-slogan was so well-known that the brewery actually always printed both slogans.
There used to be the famous HIV-tour. You visited the Hauptquatier, Intensivstation and Voltaire. But now the I-Station closed some time ago and you had to come up with a new plan for the pub-crawl.
Tschö, wa! (note to Moderator: that's the Aachen dialect's way of saying 'see ya')
