Beer wagons are cool. Even if you don't drink beer it's not hard to appreciate their uniqueness. Some are large and grandiose like the Budweiser wagon while others are small and quaint. Among the 'small and quaint' variety is this wagon from Zweibrücken, Germany. These photos were taken at one of the many fests during the 1980's and it was actually my first time (that I can remember) seeing a beer wagon in real life after having seen them on TV and in the movies. As I begin to photograph or scan more of the collection we'll be posting more beer stuff, so for now - Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
"Hopfen und Malz
Roughly translated: "Hops and malt God preserves". Or "Hops and malt never get old"
It rhymes a whole lot better in German!!
