Morning pint

brunch (GB)
Term for a morning meal that is traditional in Austria and Germany, which could also be called the German version of brunch. In Bavaria it is usually understood to be a breakfast consisting of white sausages, sweet mustard, pretzels and wheat beer. Since the latter is enjoyed in the form of "Schoppen" (0.5 litre beer), the meaning of the word "Frühschoppen" can be explained. However, it is also understood to mean a regular gathering in an inn on Sunday mornings, mainly in rural areas, at which beer or wine is drunk and, if necessary, a snack is taken. It also refers to an event held in the morning in a pub or as part of a tent festival with mostly folk music, but also jazz, for example. See also the section on wine-growing customs.
