You foam within our glasses, you lusty golden brew,
Whoever imbibes takes fire from you
The young and old sing your praises,
Here's to beer, here's to cheer, here's to beer.


Charles Neaves

Pure water is the best of
gifts that man to man can bring.
But who am I that I should have
the best of anything?
Let prices revel at the pump,
let peers with ponds make free,
beer is good enough for me.


Lord Arthur Lands

They talk about their foreign wines -
champagne and bright Moselle,
And think because they're from abroad,
that we must like them well
And of their wholesome qualities
they tell a wondrous tale;
But sour or sweet,
they cannot beat
a glass of old English ale.


Kevin Toppy

Lift 'em high and drain 'em dry
A toast to the guy who says
"my turn to buy!"


Robert Burns

How easy can the barley-bree
Content the quarrel
It's aye the cheapest lawyer's fee
To taste the barrel


Edward  Jayson

This is what I now propose
In a tavern drinking beer I shall die
And as I take my final tot
I pray that God receives with loving care
Such a decent drunken sot.
