Brainteasers (199) Bar manners

Last time we only asked for one "odd man out" The odd man out was: "to go to the dogs" (unter die Räder kommen)

But if you are always "drunk as a fiddler's bitch" you can easily go to the dogs, because you have a drinking problem? All the others were Synonyms for "to drink" with slightly different meanings:

"einen trinken gehen":
to take the dog for a walk
to see a man about a dog
to go down the pub
to have a jar
to hit the bottle
to raise an elbow

to knock back a few (ein paar runterschlucken)
to tipple (einen picheln)

to wet the whistle (sich die Kehle anfeuchten)

to drink like a fish (saufen wie ein Ochs/Kamel/Pferd usw.)

to take a hair of the dog that bit you
(einen Kater mit Alkohol bekämpfen)
