Supporting the working man

By , November 12, 2010 in alcohol quotes

Remember Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy on Saturday Night Live. Sometimes that four second spot was the funniest part of the show. Here’s a classic deep thought. Sometimes when I reflect back 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. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.” -Deep Thought, Jack Handy Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

Wanker spotting

By , November 11, 2010 in alcohol quotes, mexican beer

Beer drinkers are a loyal lot. Often a beer lover will discover a particular beer or brewer and drink it almost exclusively. Then there are those who discover that they hate a particular brand of beer and spend the rest of their life deriding it. I have a feeling that Warwick Franks falls into the later category. The easiest way to spot a wanker in a pub is to look around and find who’s drinking a Corona with a slice of lemon in the neck. -Warwick Franks Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

Wasted mornings

By , November 10, 2010 in alcohol quotes

Here’s another classic from one of the classic partiers. 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. -Frank Sinatra Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

Beery nationalism

By , November 9, 2010 in alcohol quotes, Beer

Now, here’s a classic. Frank Zappa, in his inestimable way, defines what it takes to be a proper nation. And yes, I agree, beer is integral. 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 Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

Bad Beer = Crime Against Humanity

By , November 8, 2010 in Alcohol Law, alcohol quotes, Beer

Every now and then lawmakers get it right. It doesn’t happen very often so, we should acknowledge it when it does — even if it happened centuries ago. The selling of bad beer is a crime against Christian love. -13th century law from the city of Augsburg. Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

A Good Time for a Beer

By , November 7, 2010 in alcohol quotes, Beer, prohibition

You might argue the Civil War or December 7, 1941 or September 11, 2001 but, for me and my people, the darkest days in the history of the United States were those from 1920 to 1933 when Prohibition was the law of the land. Those must have been dark days, indeed. Today’s quote comes from Franklin D. Roosevelt. One night during dinner he thought that he might like to have a beer. Within a week, 3.2% beer was approved by both houses of Congress. Though it would take a few more months to fully repeal Prohibition, this simple sentence paved the way. I think this would be a good time for a beer. -Franklin Delano Roosevelt Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

Scotch and Water?

Frankly, I know nothing about Joe E. Lewis. But, I can’t argue with his position on water. It just takes up space in the glass that you could fill with more whisky! Whenever someone asks me if I want water with my Scotch, I say I’m thirsty, not dirty. -Joe E. Lewis Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners

Homer Simpson Wisdom – To Alcohol

By , November 5, 2010 in alcohol quotes, booze

There’s a certain stupid kind of wisdom at work somewhere inside of Homer Simpson. Here’s one particularly wonderful jewel that he shared with us about alcohol. To alcohol!

A Case for Scotch

By , November 4, 2010 in alcohol quotes, scotch, whisky

If you want a good quote about pretty much anything but especially alcohol, check in with W.C. Fields. The man knew his one-liners and he definitely knew his booze! Set up another case bartender! The best thing for a case of nerves is a case of Scotch. -W. C. Fields By the way, while we’re talking about Scotch, if you want to taste some good single malt, check out Celebrate the Macallan. The whisky maker is holding tastings at various locations across the US. Just go to the site, give them your address and see if there’s a tasting being held near you.

Old Drunks

By , November 3, 2010 in alcohol quotes, Beer

One of my very favorite boozy pontificators is a fellow who just goes by the name of Anonymous. I’m not sure who he was, where or even when he lived but he came up with some of the best quotes about beer and booze. There are more old drunks than old doctors. -Anonymous Part of the November 2010 series of Beer and booze quips, quotes and one-liners
