Today’s Number 22 and a beer comes to us from reader Holger Boerner of Berlin. Thanks Holger for the dish and recommendation.

If you are travelling through Germany on a budget Berlin is a great bet. In no other German city will you encounter as many restaurants with good food and almost ridiculously low prices. In a Thai place in Friedrichshain I actually once had a vegetarian coconut soup that cost less than the beer. And the brew was domestic!

Holger opted for a german classic: malt beer. Not actually beer, this non-alcoholic beverage is sweet and dark brown and a favorite among german kids. “Zis iss a bier, zat makes us look like ze grone ups!”
I guess it is one of those things you have to grow up with to appreciate. I hate it, then again, I have never ever met a German who likes root beer.
