- Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish! Let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.
- Proverbs 31:6-7, New International Version. (Many translations have "strong drink" rather than "beer").
- This is grain, which any fool can eat, but for which the Lord intended a more divine means of consumption. Let us give praise to our Maker and glory to His bounty by learning about…beer!
- Friar Tuck, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
