Beer Bikes to be banned in Amsterdam (ABC/Reuters)

Amsterdam's beer bikes banned over congestion, 'disorderly behaviour'
ABC/Reuters wrote:Amsterdam has banned "beer bikes" following years of complaints from local residents, after a court agreed the 12-seat rolling bars block traffic and disrupt public order, with riders shouting and urinating in public.

Yeah, I imagine that would get rather obnoxious very quickly if you lived there

Why are they called beer bikes? They appear to have too many wheels.
