In the Beer Garden
Since the beginning of civilization, people have enjoyed the effects of various intoxicants. No civilized culture throughout history has been devoid of psychoactive substances. Beer has been an essential part of many cultures for nearly 6,000 years. Wine and spirits would soon follow.
Beer is as old as civilization itself. I won’t go into the intertwined history of beer and civilization here. For a thoroughly entertaining look at beer and the music that accompanies it, see Judge Parker’s now classic series “7 Drinks of Mankind” over on Locust St..
It’s Friday, and for many hard working folks the weekend starts at quitin’ time. I’ll be watching that clock until beer:thirty, as I reckon a lot of you folks will be. Let’s kick the weekend off with a few good-time drinkin’ songs.
“People who drink light ‘beer’ don’t like the taste of beer; they just like to pee a lot.” – Capital Brewery, Middleton, Wisconsin
Y'all have a good weekend!
