Give me champagne
I won't complain.
If that's the best you can do.

But if you've got class
Fill my glass
With Oklahoma homebrew.

Tom T. Hall


Submit, Bunch of Grapes,
To the strong Barley ear;

The weak wine no longer
The laurel shall wear.

Sack, and all drinks else,
Desist from the strife:

Ale's the only Aqua Vitae,
And liquor of life.

Elizabethan song in praise of ale


Feast on wine or fast on water,
And your honor shall stand sure

If an angel out of heaven
Brings you something else to drink,

Thank him for his kind attentions,
Go and pour it down the sink.

G.K. Chesterton
