Flavorwire.com a publicat un top cu 13 apariţii ale berii în literatură. Printre ele era şi citatul din titlu, care mi-a atras atenţia şi care m-a pus cumva pe gânduri.
“There is an ancient Celtic axiom that says ‘Good people drink good beer.’ Which is true, then as now. Just look around you in any public barroom and you will quickly see: Bad people drink bad beer. Think about it. “ — Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Printre preferatele mele mai e şi ce-a spus Haruki Murakami în The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle:
“I tell you, Mr. Okada, a cold beer at the end of the day is the best thing life has to offer. Some choosy people say that a too cold beer doesn’t taste good, but I couldn’t disagree more. The first beer should be so cold you can’t even taste it. The second one should be a little less chilled, but I want that first one to be like ice. I want it to be so cold my temples throb with pain. This is my own personal preference of course.” — Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
Dar şi această foarte frumoasă poezie semnată de Edgar Allan Poe:
Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chambers of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies,
Come to life and fade away:
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.
