There’s been a serious heat wave rolling through Germany and it’s becoming clear that the Germans are trying to beat the heat by chugging beer. We know this because some breweries over there are running out of bottles and crates.

One brewery has even gone so far as to post messages on Facebook, urging customers to return their empties to keep the beer flowing. (Fortune)
