    • Tour Guide: Oh yes, Munich is famous for its beer halls
      In the scene where Brian enrages his German tour guide, Brian points out a beer hall and the tour guide goes off on that. The scene has very much to do with Nazis and Hitler, and so does the beerhall refferance. Late in 1923, Hitler and his Nazis attempted a coup in Munich, and did so by taking German government officials hostage in a beerhall. The whole thing was put down but its influence lived on and TIME magazine noted it as one of the 80 most important days in the last 80 years. This refferance might not be intentional, but it does work and it is sort of a neat fact
