The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

any alcohol beverage.

A young adult college student studying in Italy
can't have a glass of Chianti with dinner,

of the countries in which they are studying.

In Pennsylvania the tax on wine and spirits is
called the Johnstown Flood tax because it was
imposed in 1936 to raise funds to help the city
of Johnstown rebuild and recover from a
devastating flood that year. The city of
Johnstown quickly rebuilt and recovered but
the tax still continues. It currently costs
the taxpayers of the state over
$160,000,000.00 each year
Say it Ain't So, Joe

Joe McKnight, school superintendent in
Laurel County, Kentucky, was forced
to resign after acknowledging that he
had transported beer and rum, which he
had purchased for his own personal
use, in a truck that happened to be
owned by the school district. While he
had not broken any law, McKnight was
in violation of the district's Alcohol-Free
Schools policy.

Beer with additives

The Uape Indians of the upper Amazon
in Brazil mix the ashes of their cremated
dead with casiri, the local alcohol
beverage. All members of the
deceased's family, young and old, then
drink the beverage with great reverence
and fond memories. There's no report
of how this might effect the taste.

A Real Toast

The word "toast," meaning a wish of
good health, started in ancient Rome,

Ya gotta love these guys
Ernest Hemingway
“An intelligent man is sometimes forced
to be drunk to spend time with his fools.”

Henny Youngman
"A drunk was in front of a judge. The
judge says 'You've been brought here for
drinking.' The drunk says 'Okay,
let's get started'.”

Tom Barker
"“I'm not drunk, all right. I just have a
speech impediment ... and a stomach
virus ... and an inner ear infection.”
K.B. Lands
“There is more to life than beer alone, but
beer makes those other things even better.”

W.C. Fields
"I drink with impunity...or anyone else who
invites me. "

Michael Jackson, Beer Hunter
“They didn't trademark everything back
then. Now someone farts and they put a
TM after it. Even Miller Lite says 'A Fine
Pilsner Beer' on the label. It is a crime."”
