Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!
This is a phrase that has been banded around over many years, beer or ale being something that has been brewed for thousands of years.
You might not know this, but until only a few hundred years ago, when you could ensure water was fresh, it was common to drink beer (or ale), especially among the poorer classes, since the fermenting process would have removed the impurities.
Years ago, drinking water from a stream or river was dangerous, since that water could be contaminated by sewage, dead bodies or chemicals. It was safer to drink ale and it kept better as well.
Ok, history lesson for the day over, open up a beer for me!
