Will there be enough beer at Oktoberfest this year to satisfy demand? It isn't like the breweries are holding back on the suds, NBC reports there's a shortage of bottles:
"Heiner Müller, manager at the Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr brewery told TZ, brewers do not have enough bottles to supply the festival. He called on drinkers to return their empties." ~ Germany's real crisis: Oktoberfest beer shortage looms
Yes, the bottles get washed and reused up to 50 times in Germany. I wonder if people are hording bottles of beer or just bottles? In any case, they'd better get to that recycling or there will be some dangerously thirst people at Oktoberfest 2012. Of course, they could always draft an amendment to beer laws, if you catch my real drift.
