What new bourbon are we pumped about? Which hiking trail are we exploring? Why is the next supercar so cool? The Manual is dedicated to helping men live a more engaged life. Each week, our editors and guests get together for a round-table discussion about what’s new, exciting, and unique in the men’s lifestyle world. So pop open your favorite brew, step into your man cave, and start streaming.

For this week’s episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast, the round-table — managing editor Nicole Raney, food and drink editor Sam Slaughter, and host Greg Nibler — dig into Deutschland with Digital Trends Senior Features Editor Drew Prindle.

Prindle, who just spent five weeks in Germany exploring the culture, joins the crew for the 99th episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon to talk about what he learned during his sojourn. Starting out with the most important topic — beer, naturally — the group slowly begins to cover some more interesting topics. We won’t spoil it, but the words “mountain cheese” and “finger wrestling” were used in the course of the discussion. From there, Prindle lets the team in on some tips and tricks for traveling through Germany that he learned during his stay.

If you’ve been with us since the beginning, then this episode is a must, as it is the end of one era and — with next week’s episode — the beginning of a new one. Or, alternatively, if you want to learn more about traveling around Germany, than we highly recommend tuning in.
