Aiding And Abetting

Albrecht Duerer Beer Stein

The tradition of a Best Man can be researched back to many  cultural traditions.  There is one school of thought that in the German Medieval times, the grooms best bud would aide him in kidnapping a the bride from a neighboring village.  He would be the friend who is the strongest fighting like Jason Bourne, beating the crap out of any one who opposed the union.  

Any friend who would make this risk, deserves a beer in a $185.00 stein (seen above).
