So last year myself and 2 friends flew from England to Amsterdam and hired a car and drove to Wacken. One hell of a roadtrip there and back as you can probably imagine. The thing that was most difficult though was trying to find a shop that sold canned beer. We stopped at about 6 big supermarkets on the way over and none of them sold beer. We even had someone back home do a google search for beer shops near Hamburg, gave us the directions and even they didn't sell them on packs bigger than 4. So where can we buy crates of beer near Hamburg? This year we fly into Hamburg airport and again have a hire car (so we can do whatever we like) but want to know where to go beforehand. Surely with Germany's rich history of fine craftsmanship in beer they sell it in bigger packs than 4. We did manage to get some crates in the village at Wacken but it was expensive and we would have preferred to have it there when we arrive. Wordy but any help is appreciated.
