I suppose most of this could apply to wine, as well…………………
TRIBUTE TO BEER
“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 did not 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.
“When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading”.
“24 hours in a day and 24 beers in a case.
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
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy”.
“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”.
“Beer: Helping ugly people have sex since 3000 B.C.”
W. C. Fields
Remember “I” before “E,” except in Budweiser.

“To some it is a six-pack.
To me, it is a Support Group.
Salvation in a can”
One night at Cheers, a TV Sitcom, Cliff Clavin said to his buddy, Norm Peterson:
“Well, ya see, Norm, it’s like this … A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.
This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members
In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells.
Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells.
But, naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.
In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.
That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers”.
