Borussia Dortmund have been praised by football supporters after their happy hour deal went viral on social media.
Dortmund fans are able to buy SIX pints of beer for just £11.50 during a special happy hour ahead of kick-off at Signal Iduna Park.
Fans can carry all six pints at once by using a Herrenhandtasche XL, which translates to man's handbag.
An image of a fully stocked Herrenhandtasche XL has gone viral after being posted by Twitter account Footy Bevs, which shares photos of beer from football clubs around the world.
The post has now gained nearly 30,000 likes on Twitter, prompting Borussia Dortmund’s English account to respond: “Beer shouldn’t be a luxury at a football match… welcome to Dortmund.
“Tired of paying €13 for a single beer that is all foam? Plan a trip to the most beautiful stadium in the world.”

The deal is available from the opening of the stadium to around 90 minutes before kick-off, with food also heavily reduced during this period.
Fans in England, many of whom are frustrated with the price of beer at games in the Premier League, were quick to praise Dortmund.
“Wish owners in this country would take a look at these prices and realise you don’t have to rinse your fans of their life savings for a pint to make profit,” wrote one fan on Twitter.

The German football attitude is far superior to the UK (and most other places no doubt). Prices(tickets as well as food and drink) arent there to exploit Maximum profits! Clubs put on transport links and just generally invest time and effort into improving the experience!!— Jonathon Rudge (@RudgeJonathon) April 19, 2022
Another added: "Superb, please have a word with the English FA, £6.95 for a pint of Budweiser at Wembley."
A third fan said: "This is why Bundesliga is the best league in the world. They don't screw over fans, and also have the highest average attendance of any league.
"You'd think other leagues would put two and two together."
Now then, when’s the next flight to Dortmund?
