Beer Quotes
« on: August 12, 2011, 09:17:45 PM »
Saw a pretty awesome quote at a craft beer bar here in Denver today. "Give a man a beer and he will waste an hour. Teach a man to homebrew and he will waste a lifetime." Maybe some of you have seen this one before but I thought it was both hilarious and probably very true. It sure has consumed quite a bit of my free time since I've started brewing in this past year. Not one minute however would I consider a waste!  ;D

I like the ones that say, "Drink beer. Not too much. Mostly homebrew."

But the one I really want is, "What care have I how time advances? I'm drinking ale tonight." - E.A. Poe

"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer." -Frank Zappa-

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

"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

"Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer." - Dave Barry

"The letters in 'Brace Beemer' can be arranged to spell 'Embrace Beer.'" - Dave Barry, referring to the actor who played the Lone Ranger on radio

"All other nations are drinking Ray Charles beer and we are drinking Barry Manilow." - Dave Barry

When I heated my home with oil, I used an average of 800 gallons a year. I have found that I can keep comfortably warm for an entire winter with slightly over half that quantity of beer. --Postpetroleum Guzzler, Dave Barry
