I've just come back from

I've just come back from the supermarket, and because it's Saturday, the Danes are primarily buying beer. As you walk down the street you pass couples carrying crates of beer between them, and because cans are banned here for environmental reasons, you have to buy bottles. Hence the average beer drinker in Denmark gets his exercise on Saturday when he lugs two dozen bottles home. Some have turned to innovation though, and modified their bikes (cars carry 200% tax so many people cycle) into dedicated beer carriers that will take anything from one to six crates. Carlsberg tend to have a monopoly on this market and they advertise that it's "Probably the best beer in town." Indeed, Danes are never happier, and often only happy, when they have a beer.
