Benjamin Franklin Drinking Quote

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
There can’t be good living where there is not good drinking.

~ Benjamin Franklin

    The actual Ben Franklin quote is:

    “Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.”

    The “beer is proof…” quote first appeared in the 1980s 🙂

    • Thanks for the reply Chris… I guess the beer industry has taken some liberties.
