How Beer Saved the World

“In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is Freedom, in water there is bacteria.” -  Benjamin Franklin

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”  -  Benjamin Franklin

"An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with fools."  - Ernest Hemingway

"He was a wise man who invented beer." - Plato

"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."

"I like beer. On occasion I will even drink a beer to celebrate a major event such as the fall of communism or the fact that our refrigerator is still working" - Dave Barry

"Beer will always have a definite role in the diet of an individual and can be considered a cog in the wheel of nutritional foods." - Bruce Carlton



We all love beer and we all love Homer Simpson. So why not get some advice from one of the most lovable drunks this side of Norm Peterson. Homer has had quite a few seasoned years as a “professional” drinker, and throughout those years he’s garnered a more than his fair share of knowledge on the subject.

Reminds me of this old poem thing:

The horse and mule live 30 years, and know nothing of wine and beer.
The goat and sheep at 20 die, and never taste of Scotch and Rye.
The cow drinks water by the ton, and at 18 is mostly done.
The dog at 15 cashes in, without the aid of Rum and Gin.
The cat in milk and water soaks, and then in 12 short years he croaks.
The modest, sober, bone-dry hen, lays eggs for nogs, then dies at 10.
All animals are strictly dry; they sinless live and swiftly die. But sinful, ginful, rum-soaked men, survive for three score years and ten.
But some of us the mighty few, stay pickled till we're 92.
