Too much work, and no vacation,
Deserves at least a small libation.
So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses;
Work's the curse of the drinking classes.


Oliver Goldsmith

Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain,
With grammar, and nonsense, and learning;
Good liquor, I stoutly maintain,
Gives genius better discerning.


G.K. Chesterton

Feast on beer 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


William Butler Yeats

Beer comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at, and I sigh.


Craig Klatz

If all be true that I do think,
There be Five Reasons why one should Drink;

Good friends, good beer, or being dry,
Or lest we should be by-and-by,
Or any other reason why.


Matt DeReno

Beer of the golden-colored even,
Companion of Fred, Bob, Joe and Stephen,
Why at the closing sounds of the fourth quarter whistle,
The empty keg makes us bristle.

So fair thy pilsner beauty foam
When soft the beer of Lite flows;
So due thy lager love returns
To bar rooms brighter than the rose;
