- English: Beer after wine and you'll feel fine; wine after beer and you'll feel queer
- German: Bier auf Wein das lass sein; Wein auf Bier das rat' ich Dir. (Roughly: Don't touch beer after wine; but wine after beer is fine)
The French notably ignore beer and instead focus on red versus white wine:
- Blanc sur rouge, rien ne bouge; rouge sur blanc, tout fout le camp. (Roughly: White on red won't go to your head; red on white and you're out for the night.)
