The sad economics of the missing beer bottles
Beer brewers in Munich may not be able to supply enough beer for the annual Oktoberfest beer festival, local newspaper Munich TZ reported, but the problem is not a lack of the alcoholic beverage.
Instead, 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.
With out a supply of bottles to build up a inventory of bottled beer, there is not going be enough beer for the Oktoberfest. How could this happen in Germany? What is happing to the bottles. What other use could these missing beer bottles be put to that is more important than botteling beer in Germany? Any ideas?
