There’s No Drink Like Beer, There’s No Drink Like Beer, There’s No Drink Like Beer

Jack Nicholson smoking a cigar

“Beer, it’s the best damn drink in the world. ” – Jack Nicholson

I’d have to say that water is the best damn drink in the world—and without water, there’s no beer. I’m also partial to coffee. But I respect Mr. Nicholson’s sentiment.

My Beer’s Too Warm, Woman Too Cold

Tom Waits drinking beer

“warm beer and cold women, I just don’t fit in

every joint I stumbled into tonight

that’s just how it’s been”

– Tom Waits, Warm Beer and Cold Women, Nighthawks at the Diner

One beer quote in particular is always attributed to Tom Waits:

“I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.”

I like the first one better for two reasons: 1) Mr. Waits did not come up with the second quote, Dorothy Parket did (I think): and 2) I can relate more to the first quote. But maybe that’s just because my refrigerator is about to shit the bed and my girl is always pissed off at me lately.

Drinking Alone is a Shitty, Sad Affair

George Thorogood

“I drink alone. Yeah, with nobody else. You know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself.” – George Thorogood

Whenever I travel, I drink alone. A lot. Nobody I work or travel with really cares about beer as much as I do, so when I’m away from home my brewery and beer bar visits are often solitary—and then there’s the hotel bar. Hotel bars are an Urban Beer Nerd’s worst nightmare. I’ve only been away from home and my girl for four days, but I’m so ready to go back to Boston. Fuck drinking alone.

Drink Beer, Feel Good (Until You Don’t)

Frank Sinatra Drinking

“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink.  When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.” – Frank Sinatra

Then again, non-drinkers don’t battle hangovers.  Hangovers build character, though…or something like that.

It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere

Edgar Allan Poe

And tomorrow. And the next day.
