Bayern Munich beer bust-up

I've only just seen this story about an incident at Bayern Munich's last home game in which French Muslim winger Franck Ribery was doused in beer by a team mate celebrating the club's twenty-third League title.

The story encapsulates a lot about how the press treats Muslims and doesn't bother to check the facts before printing a story. One question strikes me though: why is Paulaner supplying Bayern with alcohol free beer?


  1. Probably because there'd be complaints about encouraging young Bayern Munchen to drink irresponsibly if the beer was alcoholic.

    1. Yes, that'd be my guess too.
