England fans travelling to Euros in Germany issued with beer strength warning

England fans travelling to Euros in Germany issued with beer strength warning

England fans would be offended by the notion that they can't hold their beer, but we all remember 'flare up his bum' man.

A warning has been issued to England fans who will be heading over to Germany for the Euros over the power of das beer.

Before you fly off the handle England fans, nobody's saying that you can't quaff pints of beer with the best of them.

It's just that some of the German beers have more alcohol in them than you might be expecting and you could find the drunkenness creeping up on you, with catastrophic consequences.

Let's be honest, when it comes to football fans the crowd of supporters that follow England around have something of a poor reputation.

I honestly don't know where such ill-repute could stem from but for some reason people think England fans might have problems with getting drunk and misbehaving.

Remember to behave yourselves out there.

With the Euros beginning in June it'll likely be lovely sunny weather, meaning the time between games will be perfect for having a pint and soaking in the atmosphere of whichever city you happen to be in.

By the way, England's group games will be played in Gelsenkirchen, Frankfurt and Cologne, if you were wondering which cities to be in for Euro 2024.

Plenty of England fans will be descending on the pubs of those fair cities with the intention of drinking lots of beer, but given the alcohol content of some German beers they could find themselves suddenly sloshed.

The Foreign Office issued a warning about the strength of German beer for those going to the Euros.

They also urged fans to give their trip some thought and planning to avoid making it to the tournament only to get turned away at the stadium, saying "Beer can be stronger than in the UK, so drink responsibly, know your limits and respect local laws.

"You may not be let into the stadium if you drink too much.

"Ticket holders will have access to discounted national and international train tickets, as well as a 36-hour travel pass for public transport.

"Transport routes around the stadiums will be very busy during the tournament.

"Local authorities may ask you to enter or leave the stadium by specific routes. Make sure you plan your journey [and] leave plenty of time, particularly on match days."
