Plastic Gem├╝tlichkeit?

In a major break with tradition, a Bavarian beer garden owner plans to switch to plastic beer mugs for this years Munich Oktoberfest. He reports that last year they had to clean up 26 tonnes of broken glass in his beer hall alone. The new glasses will weigh around two pound less apiece, making it easier for dirndl clad waitresses to haul fistfuls of liter sized mugs around. But they just won't have the same 'clink' when singing drinking songs.
