Post-graduation job placement leaves a little to be desired, but these guys offer the best undergraduate program around.

We had to overcome a language barrier on our first visit to the academy. After a lengthy session at another pub, we wound our way back to Celle and decided to stop into the academy for a nightcap.

I looked the bar man straight in the eye and asked for "dunkelweizen".

He poured a Coca-Cola.

I repeated "dunkelweizen".

He shook his head as if not to understand.

"Dunkelweizen" again said the foreigner lost in Germany.

"Ah...Dunkles...Dunkles Weizen??"

Okay ... so the bartender obviously was behind in his studies. But we had a "Dunkel", an Einbecker Dunkel (not a "Dunkelweizen"), and it was good.

Then we had a Jever, and we realized that a good pilsener beer actually existed in Germany!
