The Circle of Beer by humon The Circle of Beer by humon
You can read all the comics here [link]

Okay, not so much a "circle" as a "food chain". Norwegians and Swedes think their beer is too expensive and cross the water to buy it in Denmark (or Finland, but we don't talk about that). Danes just think beer is too expensive in Scandinavia as a whole and cross the border to buy it in Germany. And Germans buy their beer in...nah, I could go on forever. :XD:

Yup, they're singing drinking songs. The first is a Swedish drinking song that is sung all over Scandinavia. The second is of course German.

First off, love your drawings.

But not only beer takes funny ways, vodka does so, too. In Åhus some famouse vodka get's produced, bottled and sent the Germany, only to be taken back by us, when we travel to our holiday home in Skåne, not even 30km from were it originated.

Nope. We buy quality beer.
We have the best breweries in the world - we are exporting weapons, cars and of cause, beer.
That's why economy needs germany.

and every german has their favorite beer.
bavarians drink weizen, people from colonge drink their "köllisch"
we in the north love astra rotlicht usw.

Danes go to Germany to buy Danish beer after all, we just ship it there and go buy it to avoid taxes.

I live my whole life in germany and I never heard that song. Maybe because I absolutely hate the kind of village feast (octoberfest counts as village feast because munich is just like a big village)... :D and yes, beer can be very cheap in germany. But the price doesnt say anything about the quality. ;)

In Mexico we hear a lot about German beer. Here it has the reputation of being the best in the world (along with Mexican beer, of course), but I've never known anyone who has tasted it... it's all in the fame.

This happens in the UK as well. There are lots of big cash-and-carries and wholesalers in Calais, to serve Britons who've hopped on the ferry for the Booze Cruise.

They buy beer in the Netherlands to! Every city has its own beer. They're among the most sold beer kinds in the whole world. They are the cheapest here but more expensive then small brands. And the dutchies sometimes buy beer in Belgium. Strong beer, a palmke or something like it.
The English guys stay on their island and everybody ignores the french!
