A sea of Paulaner red in a thirsty city. That’s a sight for sore eyes, even as the distribution facility is directly across from East Cemetery. Perhaps it has something to do with getting closer to heaven after leaving this world. Either way, Paulaner is Munich’s largest brewery, and the impact of having several local heavy weights in the industry is that exports are shipped all over the world, and locally you can get a case (20) of beer for about 12 euros – once you get beyond the deposits for bottles and these lovely carrying cases. Going to a local Getranke market in Munich, is like being a kid going to the candy store – every variety you can think of. But back to the photo, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news – but these crates are empty.
