German beer has a "Tag des Deutschen Bieres" - Beer/Fluessiges Brot, liquid bread, is "Food" in Bavaria - even the smallest region has a brewery, and it's important to raise one thumb when ordering. Germany's beer has a culture of its own.

Obatzda, Beer Garden Favorite, Recipes
A Bavarian Beer Garden without "Obatzda" on the menu would be hard to find. A spicy mixture of different cheeses, always flavored with paprika whatever additional ingredients are included, it's a favorite Bavarian specialty that is really worth trying.
