BIER     
Beer has a particularly long tradition in Germany and is of two main types: top-fermented beers (Weizenbier, made from wheat and barley) and bottom-fermented beers (lager beers that are stored in the barrel for four to six weeks). These are further divided into light, medium and dark. Some beers, such as Kölsch or Berliner Weiße, are drunk mainly in the region in which they are produced, but Pilsener or Pils -- a light beer with a strong bitter taste, served in traditional tulip glasses -- is found everywhere. Light beers such as Dortmunder, which is also called Helles or Export depending on the region and the brewing method, have a slightly bitter taste. Medium beers include Märzen and Wiener Bier. Dark beers taste more strongly of malt and are therefore somewhat sweet.
