A Maß is the standard German measure of beer - one litre. Usually it is served in a Stein but some more trendy places (and anywhere outside Bavaria) prefer serving beer in a glass. The alternative to this is the halb- (or girly-) Maß, a half-litre.

Variations on this exist in the forms of a Radler - Half beer and half "Sprudel" (carbonated orange juice) - and the ever-so-popular beer and a shot, usually in the form of schnapps.
