  Masses of beer at Oktoberfest
by TinyTuck

Bavarians drink "Weißbier" (white beer), and they drink it liter-wise! A liter of beer is called "Mass" (pronounce: Maas). You can also order half a mass, but that's "socially inacceptable", unless maybe you are a small female... Liters of beer are already ordered quite early in the day. Before taking the first sip you gotta clink glasses and say "Prost"!
A famous non-alcoholic beverage is "Spezi" (a mix of coke and limonade). I'd say it's less embarrasing to order this one than a half Mass! (People will think that you have to drive)... ;-)
