'''Pißwasser''' (mispronounced in-game as "pisswasser"; the correct pronunciation is actually "'''Pissvasser'''") is a fictional German export lager frequently advertised on radio and TV in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
 
   
'Wasser' in the beer's name translates into English as 'water', making the beverage's literal name 'piss water', which is a slang term for cheap, watered-down beer. According to the in-game website www.piswasser.com, the ingredients include "the fresh urine of Bavarian virgins" (however, the site goes on to say "or so we claim", implying that it might not be as fresh as one would hope). Billboards seen in-game expand the urine references, even going so far as to suggest the bottles contain nothing ''but'' urine (perhaps in reference to the [http://www.snopes.com/horrors/food/corona.asp urine in Corona beer] rumor). The beer's slogan is "PIßWASSER: You're In, For A Good Time" ("you're in" being a pun on ''urine''). The quality of the beer in reflected by its second slogan "PIßWASSER: Cheap German lager for export only". The Pißwasser badge on bar pumps is labeled "'''Ü-Rhine'''" (and the six-crate of Pißwasser that [[Rockstar]] sent to UK website CVG Online as a present was labeled in the same way), which is probably a nod to the [[Wikipedia:Rhine|Rhine]] river in Germany as well as another pun on "'''urine'''".

The Pißwasser logo on a coaster seen on the Rockstar Games Social Club website.

Pißwasser (BAWSAQ: PIS) (English: /ˈpɪsˌwɑsər/; German: /ˈpɪsˌvasəʁ/), alphabetized as Pisswasser, is a fictional German export lager frequently advertised on radio and TV in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

DescriptionEdit

'Wasser' in the beer's name translates into English as 'water', implying the beverage's literal name is 'piss water', which is a slang term for cheap, watered-down beer. According to the in-game website www.piswasser.com, the ingredients include "the fresh urine of Bavarian virgins" (however, the site goes on to say "or so we claim", implying that it might not be as fresh as one would hope). Billboards seen in-game expand the urine references, even going so far as to suggest the bottles contain nothing but urine (perhaps in reference to the urine in Corona beer rumor). The beer's slogan & motto tagline is: "You Are In For A Good Time" ("You Are In" being a pun on Urine). The quality of the beer in reflected by its second slogan & motto tagline is: "Cheap German Lager For Export Only". The Pißwasser badge on bar pumps is labeled "Ü-Rhine" (and the six-crate of Pißwasser that Rockstar sent to UK website CVG Online as a present was labeled in the same way), which is probably a nod to the Rhine river in Germany as well as another pun on "Urine".

The labels on the bottles are similar to Grafenwalder's labeling.

Radio and Television advertisements for the beer feature variations of a song sung by a stereotypical redneck man with lyrics that portray comically exaggerated effects of alcoholism, including "[giving] a dude head" and "[driving] drunk off a pier". The Pißwasser song largely spoofs Budweiser's anthem, "This is Budweiser, This is Beer", particularly towards the end of the jingle.

In GTA Online, a beer hat of the Pißwasser beer becomes available through the special crates, after the Independence Day Special is installed. It can also be purchased in convenience stores across San Andreas and can be drunk at safehouses.
