    • It made it very easy to photograph and identify the beer we were drinking based on the glass – it was much harder in Holland, where they only did this once in awhile, and other places where they put where they put all the beer in the same glasses – this doesn’t make much of a photo!

      • I didn’t mean to edit you, of course you can write whatever you like. It’s just typical of all European countries and their pubs, so I wondered what struck you as so unusual. 😉 It reminded me of the song “Tuesday – It Must Be Belgium”. 🙂
