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.
