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?
