There were a few dozen polka records at the Bissell thrift store this week – I checked them all for a version of No Beer In Heaven (also known as In Heaven There Is No Beer) that I’ve been trying to find since I heard it in the summer of 2000 on tourist radio in Drumheller, Alberta. It’s an over-the-top rendition with choruses of German ja jas and French oui ouis sung by a rollicking male chorus. I think the version I’m looking for may be by the Polka Kings. Can any of you polka aficionados out there confirm or deny?
