10. Say, for what were hop-yards meant,

Or why was Burton built on Trent?

Oh many a peer of England brews

Livelier liquor than the Muse,

And malt does more than Milton can

To justify God’s ways to man.

Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink

For fellows whom it hurts to think.  (God & Alcohol & Beer & Milton & Think)  A E Housman, A Shropshire Lad

3,096.  Space is jam-packed with some very weird things.  The universe is full of objects and all sorts of mysterious phenomena that we still don’t fully understand.  Strange as it may seem astronomers have discovered inter-stellar clouds actually filled with the same kind of alcohol that is found in beer.  (Space & Universe & Astronomy & Alcohol & Beer)  The Universe s3e10: Strangest Things, 2009

27,022.  The next drink I have's gonna be a lager – ice cold; there’s a little bar in Alex with a marble top counter and high stools.  They serve the best beer in the whole of the Middle East.  When we get through with this, I’ll buy you one.  (World War II & Drink & Beer & Alcohol)  Ice Cold in Alex 1957 starring John Mills & Sylvia Syms & Anthony Quayle & Harry Andrews & Diane Clare & Richard Leech & Liam Redmond & Peter Arne et al, director J Lee Thompson

42,885.  Rules is rules.  It’s pint for the fellah, glass of white wine, fruit-based drink for the lady.  Those are the rules.  If we didn’t have rules then where would we be?  That’s right.  France.  (Alcohol & Pubs & Beer & Wine)  ibid.  

 

43,660.  Man cannot live by beer alone.  No no no.  He needs crisps and nuts, and maybe a lovely bag of scratchings.  (Pub & Beer)  ibid.

 

 

42,950.  I have fed purely upon ale; I have eat my ale,

I drank my ale, and I always sleetp upon ale.  (Alcohol & Beer)  George Farquhar, The Beaux’ Stratagem

 

 

42,951.  Flow Welsted, flow! like thine inspirer, Beer,

Tho’ stale, not ripe; tho’ thin, yet never clear;

So sweetly marish, and so smoothly dull;

Heady, not strong; o’erflowing tho’ not full.  (Alcohol & Beer)  Alexander Pope, The Dunciad 1742

 

 

42,966.  Dear Mother, dear Mother, the Church is cold,

But the Ale-house is healthy & pleasant & warm;

Besides I can tell where I am used well,

Such usage in heaven will never do well.

 

But if at the Church they would give us some Ale,

And a pleasant fire our souls to regale,

We'd sing and we'd pray all the live-long day,

Nor ever once wish from the Church to stray.

 

Then the Parson might preach, & drink, & sing,

And we'd be as happy as birds in the spring;

And modest dame Lurch, who is always at Church,

Would not have bandy children, nor fasting, nor birds.

 

And God, like a father rejoicing to see

His children as pleasant and happy as he,

Would have no more quarrel with the Devil or the Barrel,

But kiss him, & give him both drink and apparel.  (Alcohol & Church & Tavern & Pub & Drink & Beer)  William Blake, The Little Vagabond

42,996.  Fill with mingled cream and amber,

I will drain that glass again.

Such hilarious visions clamber

Through the chamber of my brain —

Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies

Come to life and fade away;

What care I how time advances?

I am drinking ale today.  (Alcohol & Beer)  Edgar Allan Poe

 

 

43,599.  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.  (Beer & Country)  Frank Zappa

 

 

43,600.  Life is with such all beer and skittles.  C S Calverley

 

 

43,601.  Lo! the poor toper whose untutored sense,

Sees bliss in ale, and can with wine dispense;

Whose head proud fancy never taught to steer,

Beyond the muddy ecstasies of beer. George Crabbe 1754-1832, Inebriety

 

 

43,602.  Doth it not show vilely in me to desire small beer?  William Shakespeare, II Henry IV II ii 7

 

 

43,603.  For generations of British people it was safer to drink beer than water.  Mark Williams, More Industrial Revelations: Bread and Beer

 

43,604.  Traditionally, brewing was something you did at home, like baking your own bread; and by malted barley, hops and water, fermented together: that gave you beer.  Everybody did it ... Some brewers started to think commercially.  ibid.
