German army removes 60,000 cans of beer from Afghanistan

1 week ago

In Afghanistan the German military got a surplus of beer because of the ban on its consumption, which came from the leadership.

After the ban the military was left with 22 thousand liters of alcohol, including wine and 60,000 cans of beer. Because of local religious restrictions and environmental concerns, the military cannot sell or dispose of alcohol in Afghanistan.

Therefore, the army leadership has contracted a contractor to take the alcohol back to Germany. The Defense Ministry believes that reselling the beer will cover the cost of transporting it.

By the way, the alcohol ban was imposed before the withdrawal of German troops from Afghanistan. The military must leave the country before September 11, 2021.
