The Have-a-Beer Statue

A guy from Bama will tend to notice that German towns tend to have extra cash just laying around (all those massive taxes and such).  So, you need to find a way to spend that money before folks figure out you've got way too much money in your pocket.

Over in Mainz....about a block away from the train station....there's this four-foot tall statue.  My title for it?  The Have-a-Beer statue.

Mainz has a reputation as a party town, and folks tend to drink a fair amount.  I'm guessing they felt this statue would make sense with the locals.

You can put up statues over dead warriors, loser politicians, baseball players, cowboys and Indians, horses, and imaginary why not a beer drinker?
