Do you know what a "Wegbier" is? What do you do if you don't have a bottle opener at hand? In her first episode of Meet the Germans, presenter Rachel Stewart took a closer look at German beer culture.
Rachel Stewart is on a mission to investigate the quirks and idiosyncrasies of daily life in Germany. Every two weeks she explores a new topic — from beer to nudity to complicated grammar — and heads out to get some tips from the Germans themselves.
Stewart moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer, she casts a fresh eye over German cliches and shares her experiences of settling into German life.
Update: Since the filming of this video in 2018, the per capita beer consumption in Germany has declined: It is now at about nearly 90 liters per year, instead of more than 100 liters per year.
