A dear friend shot me an e-mail that included some great beer quotes. I thought I’d share a few.
“Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, ‘It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'” –Babe Ruth
“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.” –Lyndon B. Johnson
“When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.” –Paul Horning
“24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.” –H. L. Mencken
“When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven!” –George Bernard Shaw
“Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.” –Dave Barry
And, this one by far is my favorite.
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” –Benjamin Franklin
Some of my favorites:
(I agree that Ben Franklin's is the the best)
"All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me – so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer."
"People who drink light 'beer' don't like the taste of beer; they just like to pee alot."
-Capital Brewery, Middleton, WI
"If God had intended us to drink beer, He would have given us stomachs."
