German term or phrase: Zwicklbier bzw. abzwickeln
"Abzwickeln" seit Alters her
Seinen Namen hat Zwickl Bier, dieser hefetrübe, ungefilterte spezielle Gerstensaft, von den kleinen Zwicklhähnen mit denen früher der Braumeister eine kleine Verkostungsmenge zur Überprüfung der Reife des eingebrauten Bieres vom Holzfass abzapfte. Auch durstige Brauburschen überzeugten sich von der Kunst Ihres Meisters, indem sie still und heimlich von der scheinbar nie versiegenden Bierquelle abzapften – besser gesagt: abzwickelten!
