Beer has always had
its place in society as attested to the quotes listed below. Read and enjoy these testimonials to
is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." [Benjamin Franklin]
"Sometimes when I reflect on all the
beer I drank I feel ashamed. Then I look in the glass and think about the workers in the brewery
and all their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their
dreams would be shattered. It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true
than be selfish and worry about my liver."
"24 hours a day, 24 beers in a case.
Coincidence? I think not." [H.L.
"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]
"When I read about the evils of drinking,
I gave up reading." [Paul Hornung]

Budweiser." [Professor Irwin Corey]
Of course who forget
the best one of all taken from the 80s hit show "Cheers."
One night at Cheers, Cliff Clavin
explained the "Buffalo Theory" to his buddy Norm:
"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."
