Does dutch have word order similar to german?

Why isn't it "doen zij drinken bier of wijn"? Why no use of the word "do"?

I finally got this one right! I keep wanting to translate this literally from English to Dutch--so instead of "Drinken zij..." I end up trying to say "Zij drinken..." At least I'm beginning to get the hang of this now. :)
