drinking Germany dry British style

The English fans who have descended upon Germany for the World Cup might very well drink Germany dry.

The Mirror reports that “In Nuremberg, organisers revealed 70,000 England fans who flooded the city drank 1.2MILLION pints of beer - an average of 17 pints each.”

And in Stuttgart, “900,000 pints were sunk last weekend where 60,000 fans partied before and after our 1-0 win over Ecuador.”

According to Herrmann Murr, a bar keep in Nuremburg, in a charmingly Churchillian manner: “"Never have I seen so many drink so much in such little time."
