Utepils for Frühjahrswanderung

Word of the day: “Utepils.”

Norwegian for “a beer that is enjoyed outside...particularly on the first hot day of the year.
— “The Positive Lexicography Project
(a catalog of foreign terms for happiness that have no direct English translation).

Used in a sentence:
An utepils would be a salubrious refreshment after a Frühjahrswanderung today.
— “Frühjahrswanderung”: German for “spring hike,”if not quite as mellifluous a locution as “utepils.”

Happy May Day!
