BEER EXCHANGE?
« on: 05.04.2015, 16:19:31 »

Hi

I heard about the snack exchange last year and wondered if anyone would be interested in a beer exchange?

Bring a few weird or quirky beers from your country/town/city/region or simply something unusual and maybe swap them for something else you've never heard of from somewhere else in the world?

Why not bring beer to the regular snack exchange? Snacks and beer should go together just fine.

I'm afraid the hotel will not allow serving beverages that aren't purchased from/via them, though.

That tends to be the official stance (was in the Maritim as well), understandably, and yet every year it's perfectly fine to have some samples of soft drinks and even a few alcoholic ones and nobody seems to care.  It is certainly not the right place for getting drunk at though.

Observing cans design won't be much of an event either. Bringing enough samples for everyone to take one is a difficult one too. I don't think i understand what you meant right there. Care to explain please?

You cant even drink your own booze in your room?. I'm unfamiliar with German alcohol laws.

You can, but you cannot have an official event serving alcohol without permission of the hotel. While bringing large amounts of alcohol to, and consuming it in, your hotel room is usually frowned upon by hotels (not just German hotels!) they won't stop you. A room party isn't an issue either, as long as it does not get out of control. However, consuming alcoholic beverages not purchased from the hotel in function spaces such as for example the lobby, hallways, conference rooms or ballrooms requires permission of the hotel which involves a nominal fee.

Basically, a hotel is restaurant with bedrooms. A large part of its revenue comes from selling food and beverages.
