On "St. Pauli Girl" Beer

Hello all,

My bro came back from L.A. and his wife showed me an empty bottle of "St. Pauli Girl" beer "imported from Germany". Let me say that there is no such brand here and I fear that the wellknown Beck's brewery in Bremen, Germany bottles and exports what sh** left in their tanks and can not be selled as "Beck's" without ruining the company's reputation.
What I found funny is that the label reads that the beer was bottled in Bremen. St. Pauli, however, is the red light district of Hamburg while the girl on the picture wears a traditional bavarian costume (a very rare view even in Bavaria, southern Germany).
Nice mixture, hm?

And btw: "Erdinger" actually is a german brand but that "Brewed for Oktoberfest"-sticker is nonsense. It is brewed for export and tastes unlike (or worse than) the original.

I feel sorry that some german managers may think they could easily fool american costumers - or can they?

St. Pauli is the cheapest beer in the store and everyone knows it. Not even dumbass frat kids are fooled that this is Beck's brew from Bremen and frankly nobody really is "fooled".

I thought they were talking about the city in Minnesota!
Anyway, seems pretty stupid to name a beer after a red light district.  Confused

I'm pretty sure they would NOT ever have a beer in Germany called Skid Row or Grungy Truckstop Beer.

Get your patchouli stink outta my store!

Sorry Guys, but Beck´s is not longer a German beer: since summer it´s owned by Interbrew from Belgium! You know, Belgium, this country, where they put chocolate or strawberry in your beer!! But the new owner said, they will still be brewing under the German "Reinheitsgebot"! Haha, who believes!?!
Try Jever, a nice beer from the German Northshore in Niedersachsen!!
BTW, at my University they sell from time to time in the Mensa Erdinger at the price of 1,50 DM for 0,5L - that´s nice for the students!!

Frohe Weihnachten from Niedersachsen/HAJ

I understand what you want to say!
But there is an other side of the medal.
there are a lot of people especially in the US and other overseas country who when they think on Germany they think on Bavaria.
German mangers know that so it is easier to sell german products with a bavarian dressed girl or something like that.

Untill today I didn't know the "St. Pauli Girl" brand. I've searched through the internet a bit about that beer. So here are some facts:

-St. Pauli Girl Beer was brewed during the 17th Century for the first time.

-St. Pauli Girl Beer is still brewed in Bremen and must adhere to a national brewing standard known as the German Purity Law of 1516.

-The name "St. Pauli" comes from the ancient St. Paul's Monastery on which the original St. Pauli Brewery was founded and built.

-The waitresses on the label wears a traditional outfit not especially a bavarian one.

-St. Pauli Girl Beer was introduced to American in select markets in 1965 and then expanded nationally in 1975.

I hope you are a bit more carefully with your prejudices in the future.

Hey! Don't slam St. Pauli Girl. It is a very popular beer where I live on the east coast, and is very respected. And don't think it is some cheap German beer. My brothers friend who IS from Germany commented on how we have it over here, and that it is one of his and his families favorites.

Here's an idea, lets get someone who is actually from Germany to comment on this.

I'm not saying Beck's is bad, and in fact I think it may be a little bit better.

Although I'm not old enough to legally drink, I have had a some that my parents have let me had.

Try www.stpauligirl.com , that should help.

I've always liked liked Beck's, but I also thought St. Pauli's Girl was also a pretty good beer, too.

A shame, since it seems to have been pulled off the shelves, at least in Western Canada. (dunno about ON and PQ, because of my country's insane liquor laws!)

Alitalia777, if you check the profiles you'll notice that three German members have already replied to this thread. But as I have never tried St. Pauli Girl beer I can't comment on that one. I like Erdinger best.

Thanks for your replies. Aerodrome, yes I slammed on St. Paulis and expressed a prejudice - sorry for that. The girl on the label combined with St. Pauli perhaps made it a little easier.

BTW: I suggest to try Jever - and in doubt: a good bottle of wine, such as Zinfandel or Merlot.
