'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 [[Piswasser.com|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 & 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 [[Wikipedia:Rhine|Rhine]] river in Germany as well as another pun on "'''Urine'''".

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 "<nowiki>[giving]</nowiki> a dude head" and "<nowiki>[driving]</nowiki> drunk off a pier". The Pißwasser song largely spoofs [[Wikipedia:Budweiser|Budweiser's]] anthem, "'''This is Budweiser, This is Beer'''", particularly towards the end of the jingle.

"Cheap 11% ABV fighting lager brewed in Germany for export only from rice, barley, hops and the fresh urine of Bavarian virgins."
― Description at Bawsaq.com.

Pißwasser (BAWSAQ: PIS) (English: /ˈpɪsˌwɑsər/; German: /ˈpɪsˌvasəʁ/), anglicised as Pisswasser, is a fictional German export lager frequently advertised on radio and TV in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. The player can buy stocks from them on the Bawsaq.com website in GTA V.

DescriptionEdit

'Wasser' is German for 'water', implying the beverage's literal name is 'piss water', 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 and tagline is: "You Are In For A Good Time" ("You Are In" being a pun on "Urine"). The quality of the beer is reflected by its second slogan: "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 reference to the Rhine river in Germany, as well as another pun on "Urine". Pißwasser used to sponsor Republican Space Rangers back in 2008.

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 Grand Theft Auto 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.
