I'm familiar with the terms "Wegbier" and "Konterbier", but wondered if there are any other examples of -Bier being added to other compound nouns to describe it being drunk in specific situations?


Feierabendbier fällt mir noch ein.

There is also After-work beer.


Yes, there are. The DWDS lists some1 that can be found in official text corpora: Konterbier (which you already mentioned), Schankbier, Freibier, Stehbier. But there are more, as other answers have shown. In fact, you can easily produce such compounds yourself: Weihnachtsbier, Winterbier, Hochzeitsbier, Frühstücksbier, Trostbier, Entspannungsbier

1 Notice that several items in the DWDS list, such as Aerobier or Barbier, are not compounds at all.
