This crossword had a name I was unfamiliar with. "Krombacher output" was BIER. I assumed that Krombacher is a company which makes the stands on which coffins lie prior to burial. It isn't. In this case, BIER is the German word for "beer" and Krombacher Brauerei is a brewery in Kreuztal-Krombach, Germany.

And speaking of foreign words, in today's Daily News puzzle I saw something I had never before seen in a crossword: a foreign word used as a clue to a foreign word in a different language. "Beaucoup" was the clue for MUCHO. Oy vey!
