There’s a reason for it.
It was invented by ancient cave man.
To ease his pain. After a day’s huntin’ and gathering he’d come back to his cave and the woman he clubbed the week before would nag him about not enough berries in the sack, the animal wasn’t skinned right, blah blah blah.
So he discovered beer then did he?
No. He invented it.
Well he went to a stream and had a drink. Rain had run over some barley and hops and the water tasted pretty good. So he squeezed some hallucinating berries into it and wah lah!
Alcohol. Beer. And that’s how it was invented.
So we blame cave man for our addiction do we? It’s not very good for us is it? That’s why we’re in here.
Shhhhh. The nurse is coming. We’ll slip out for a smoke when she’s gone.
