German navy tradition: The beer report


I read in the book U-Boat 977 by Heinz Schaeffer about a tradition in the German navy that concerns a social/comedic action called the, 'Beer report'. Does anyone know what that is about and in particular when it started?

Thanks

Yes I've read a great deal about the German navy from the 1871 to modern times and have found nothing related to this.
