Just back from Germany where I took this picture of a ‘Bierbauch’ (beer belly or beer gut). I wonder in how many languages such a word exists? If the origin for such a belly is not beer what other words do we find for such a belly?

I am not sure there is a word for it in French. A big belly is a big belly is a big belly, regardless of the means to get it. Would call it "un gros ventre".

tripa hinchada por consomar demasiado cerveza

in French:

In Kölsch (real German):
