The connection between drinking beer and dancing the polka crosses many cultures. In Czechoslovakia in 1927, a piece was written whose lyrics gave it the title "Skoda Lasky" which translates to “wasted love.” The Germans wrote their own lyrics to the same tune and named it “Rosamunde”. Finally in England, the tune became the "Beer Barrel Polka" cementing the notion that beer and polka are universally linked, and loved.
