Who Would You Have a Beer With

I can’t let this one pass without comment. Anheuser-Busch recently gave their Here’s To Beer website a face lift. Besides being slicker it’s also got some new features. One that really strikes my fancy is Who Would You Have a Beer With.

What they did was take an actor, put him in different costumes, gave him a beer and sat him down in front of a camera. He portrays figures from history with quite a lot of poetic license. You can “have a beer” with Ben Franklin, Genghis Kahn or Johnny Appleseed although why the latter wouldn’t opt for hard cider is beyond me.

But this brings up a more important question: Who would you like to have a beer with? Setting aside little problems like language and culture differences, which one character from history would you like to have a beer with? Actually, Ben Franklin really isn’t a bad choice. A few other names that leap to mind are Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, Jack Kerouac, and Jim Morrison. (Yes, actually, I was an English literature major. Why do you ask?)

How about you? Who would you have a beer with?
