Why, you ask? Well…
“We cleaned up almost 26 tonnes of broken glass on the floor of my tent,” at last year's beer festival, said Wiggerl Hagn.
“The waitresses won't have to carry such heavy loads anymore. These
cups weigh around a kilogram less than those made out of glass,” he
said, confirming a report in the Munich TZ newspaper.
I think of Oktoberfest (I *will* go one year…) I picture the
waitresses carrying massive steins of beer and wonder how they do it.
This kinda kills that image.
