Can someone please explain why? I have heard this all my life, but don't know why we say it.

Obviously, there is a word missing ... Bier ist alle XXX, but what is XXX ?

There are some comments linking to a similar/duplicate question, BUT that is entirely in German and I would like to see an English language explanation.

  • A good one (+1), and good that it points out that Austria uses aus in place of alle - Bier ist aus`. But I would like to see an English language explanation

    It is true that same questions in different languages should not be considered duplicates per site rules. However, all the answers to the linked question are speculations, no one does know the correct answer. Commented Feb 16, 2020 at 11:21
